  Broken Arrow Blues Band- No Time To Waste

Broken Arrow Blues Band's new cd "No Time To Waste" is an amazing cd that grabs ahold of you from the first note and doesn't let go even when you've listened to the last song.
Shadowhawk Ellis (Vocals & Percussion) is both the leader and the backbone of the band and can growl out the blues with the best of them. Backed by a brand new line up, BABB is stronger than ever and proof that the blues in Detriot are still alive and kicking!
Start listening to "No TIme To Waste" and you wont want to stop. Get this cd in your collection NOW!

  After a brief Hiatus Broken Arrow Blues Band is back on the street with a new lineup and a seriously HEAVY attitude. Their HOT new package is titled "No Time To Waste". This one represents a definite shift from the intricate compisitions of past albums. The 10 tracks in this collection cry out " Let's get down and Party!!"

   Percussion Wiz, Shadowhawk Ellis steps out front this time doing lead vocals on 7 of the 10 tracks. Just to reinforce that point Ellis also takes writter & composer credits on 8 of the 10. To get the party started the collection leads of with two rockers. "The River Is Risin'", and "She Don't Know". Ellis demonstrates that he has the the vocal chops to cover the gamut from the rockers on down to heavy blues. He has a gritty vocal style that fits oh so well on these recordings.

   Guitar Man, Christopher Leigh is featured throughout the collection. His prowess with the 6 string is well respected by Detroiters in the know. He & Ellis have worked together in the past in "The Boogie Chillens Band. It is great to have them reunited once again. Leigh is also is a talented vocalist and shows it when he takes lead on the slow blues Ray Charles Cover "Hard Times".

   Vocalist Trish Shandor, leads a jump blues number titled "My Turn To Play" that will have the listener moving to the beat. She concludes the set with a sexy New Orleans flavored slow one which is also the title track, 'No Time To Waste"   As with any party collection the fans look for a chance to cuddle with a main squeeze and this tune fills the bill.

   Bass duties in this collection are shared by Veteran musicians James Cloyd, Rudy Alcala, & Ben Luttermoser. the bass lines are prominent in these recordings providing that necessary heart throb foundation that listeners enjoy. Toledo, Ohio Native and Harmonica Man, Mugs Benedict is featured on a slow blues instrumental titled "Mugshot". Piano & B-3 comes via Tom Fossleman, also a talented and Veteran player with many years experience. This blend of seasoned players cements the backdrop for the featured vocalists.

   Recorded and mixing was at Motor City Sounds (Rochester, MI) under the guidance of Motor City Josh Ford. His capable hands captured each instrument clearly providing a very enjoyable product. Mastering was by Tim Pakledinaz at The Wood Shed in Virginia.

   The Broken Arrow Blues Band has another winner on it's hands. This collection rocks out the party tunes and gets down on the gritty side of things with it's blues. Add this album to your library. You'll be glad you did.
