Update from Chad - news from the road and upcoming Brighton gig

Hi folks, just back from a fabulous tour with Paul lamb & The kingsnakes. We played some great shows in Germany, Switzerland and Austria to some wonderful people, now I'm getting excited about playing with the Chad-illacs again this weekend in Brighton. Hope some of you can attend the show, sounds like it's gonna be a blast!

Album of the Month - Shake-Down!

The good news keeps coming! Following several brilliant reviews, Chad Strentz’ debut solo album, Shake-Down, has just been awarded “Album of the Month” by the Independent Blues Broadcasters Association.

The 33 radio stations that comprise the IBBA will each be playing tracks from Shake-Down throughout September.

A huge “thank you” to Ashwyn Smyth of Digital Blues for nominating the album and his ongoing support and congratulations to Chad and all the musicians who played on the album.

Shake-Down album review

Fabulous review from Grahame Rhodes of Blues in the Northwest - thanks, Grahame!

"... the solo debut from the excellent singer and guitarist and long-time member of Paul Lamb & The King Snakes, is pretty exceptional!"

"When you see a cast-list like this, you know the music is going to be top-notch: Jim Leverton (bass), Jimmy Reiter and Kai Strauss (electric guitars), Christian Rannenberg (piano), Raphael Wressnig (Hammond C-3), Pete Pritchard (double bass), and Mike Thorne (drums), with a guest appearance from Danny Kyle on guitar – a super British and European band for sure!"

"To sum up, one of the best things I’ve heard this year and well worth the wait . . . well done Chad!"
