After having just seen the movie American Hustle, I had to logon to Spotify to listen to some great 70's music. This playlist caught my attention because there are a lot of one hit wonders and some great hits by some lesser know artists. The song by The Sylvers called "Boogie Fever" always reminds me of my early disco days when Disco was cool. The horn section tears it up and absolutely captivate the song. Another great cut is from "The Fortunes" called "Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again". Who can forget that xylophone intro? One of my favorite cuts is "Our Love Is Insane" by the Desmond Child & Rogue only for the bass intro. It's enough to want me to pick up my bass and jam!! Hope you enjoy! - Bluesdaddy

When Grunge Was King
These songs are a compilation of my favorite tunes during the Grunge music period. These artist, in my honest opinion, played a significant part in starting the grunge movement and crossing over to mainstream radio play during the 90's. Enjoy! - Bluesdaddy

The Cash Box Kings
The Cash Box Kings are an up and coming blues band dedicated to carrying on the spirit of the 1940's and 1950's post-war blues sound. The band showcases the music of Chess Records and Sun Records luminaries such as Little Walter, Muddy Waters, and the Howlin' Wolf as well as lesser known artists such as Robert Nighthawk and Eddie Taylor, The CBKs also delve into the Mississippi Delta sounds of blues men like Charley Patton, Son House, Fred McDowell and R.L. Burnside. The group rounds off their musical offerings with a healthy dose of original music that captures the essence of the Memphis and Chicago blues sounds of the 40's and 50's.

Genres: Rock / southern rock / indie rock
Members: Paul Gerdts- Vocals, Patrick Bitbol- Guitars, Brother Sal- Guitars/Vocals, Chris Ball- Bass, Andrei Koribanics- Drums
A glorious return to the blues-driven, from-the-gut Rock and Roll that has been sadly missing from the world for far too long, Ghost & the Big Sky is a musical powerhouse built for performance. Original members Paul Gerdts (vocals) and Patrick Ruben Bitbol (guitar) have been composing soulful, musical stories together for years and formed a band to tell them. The band went through several line-ups as different faces entered and exited, but with the addition of Brother Sal (guitar/vocals) as a third songwriter, the vision really started to take shape. In the summer of 2011, long-time musical partners Chris Ball (bass) and Andrei Koribanics (drums) were recruited to lay anchor and complete the equation.
