ALTERED FIVE BLUES BAND - TEN THOUSAND WATTS
LABEL: BLIND PIG RECORDS
RELEASE DATE: SEPTEMBER 6, 2019

The bad boys from Milwaukee, Altered Five Blues Band, are back, bringing all the blues power
they could generate in their fifth album “Ten Thousand Watts.” The supercharged blues party is
sure to satisfy the needs of all dedicated fans worldwide. The stalwart quintet, led by steamroller
vocalist Jeff Taylor and live wire guitarist Jeff Schroedl, reunited with Grammy winning producer......


Tom Hambridge in Nashville at Ocean Way Studios in the spring of 2019. Hambridge, producer
extraordinaire with the Midas touch, brings out the absolute best performances from the band.
The rhythm section of Mark Solveson on bass, Ray Tevich on keys and drummer Alan Arber are
transformed into a wrecking crew of blues might, delivering the goods on 12 original tunes full of
contagious hooks and infectious grooves that will tantalize your ears and supercharge your soul.
The band invited Steve Cohen to join them on the opening track ‘Right On, Right On,’ adding
some high voltage blues harp to the full tilt boogie call to arms. The fellas then get down to
business with Schroedl dropping a gritty riff leading into a tale of tough love on ‘To Mad To Make
Up.’ The muscular title track ‘Ten Thousand Watts’ has Taylor detailing his abundant powers of
seduction and satisfaction, followed by playing the humble fool on the rollicking ‘Mischief Man.’
The spunky Chicago shuffle ‘Great Minds Drink Alike’ celebrates good times with a good woman
at your favorite dance hall on a Friday night.

JT and the crew then slow the tempo to pontificate on their love for the music that inspires them
on the sentimental ‘Don’t Rock My Blues’ that features guitar work reminiscent of B.B. King. Arber
fuses together a rhumba with the second line on the New Orleans flavored ‘Sweet Marie,’ with
Tevich tossing in some convincing Professor Longhair piano. Taylor digs deep on the emotional
blues torch song ‘Dollars & Demons,’ then plays the role of a man done wrong on ‘I Hate To
Leave You (With A 6-Pack In The Fridge).’




The swampy ‘Let Me Do The Wrong Thing’ is a satirical turn of phrase about wanting to bust out
of the mold and taste some forbidden fruit. Another swinging boogaloo beat from Arber sets the
table for Taylor to preach and Schroedl to do some clever finger picking on the electrifying tune
‘Half Of Nothing,’ before Cohen and his blues harp rejoins the band to bid us farewell on the
dynamic closer ‘Let Me Be Gone.’
A 10,000-watt generator can give you enough power to run large appliances during a power
outage. The Altered Five Blues Band live up to that pronouncement by coming to our rescue and
lighting up the night with this electrostatic collection of high voltage blues, rock and soul.
