Blues Old Stand has expanded their sound over the years, keeping their music fresh, and avoiding the tired cliches of the â€œBlues Rockâ€ and â€œJam-Bandâ€ genres, creating a 21st century version of the blues, with everything from slide guitar and harmonicas, to samples and â€œfound soundsâ€- and still keeping it funky and staying true to their Southern Blues heritage.
Their latest CD, a five-song EP featuring the single â€œMuleâ€ (released October 2001), garnered great regional and internet reviews, and earned the boys a spot at CMJ's 2001 MusicMarathon in NYC. â€œMuleâ€ been ranked on Garageband.com's Funk/Soul chart as high as #24, and is featured on their October 2002 â€œEvolved: Funk/Soulâ€ compilation CD. Their first self-titled CD, released in 1995 on their own Supahi Label, sold 2000 copies.
