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.
Shake-Down is available from Chad’s record label, TreeHouse44.
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!"

Thanks to all who came out to support Chad and the band at the Sydenham Blues Club last weekend. We had a great time and, judging by their reaction, the audience did too!
Special thanks to Becky for booking the band - we're looking forward to returning again next year - watch this space.
