I've decided to just give a quick (maybe not so quick) rundown of 2010.
We started things off with a bang with another stellar effort by Grammy-nominated John Hollenbeck. Hailing from New York and Berlin, John sent in his Claudia Quintet record called "Royal Toast". It was a great way to kick off the new year.
Allison Dennis channeled her love of yoga into music. "The Light Revolution" was her first venture into the studio, but was aided by talented music pro and DJ, Steven Levitin (aka The Applejuice Kid).
Tom Maxwell, former frontman of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, brought in a new solo release. My personal favorite is "Who Threw That Ham at Me".
C.C. Adcock brought in a stellar record with a stellar line-up called Lil' Band O' Gold. Comprised of the most legendary players around in the Louisiana swamp rock scene. Warren Storm, C.C., Steve Riley, David Egan, Dave Ranson, Pat Breaux, Dickie Landry, and Richard Comeaux - it doesn't get much better than this. These guys are also featured in an award-winning documentary film called "The Promised Land: A Swamp Pop Journey".
More to come...
