The Blue Voodoo Band Review -
The overall effect of the Blue Voodoo Band’s latest release, OUTSIDE LOOKING IN, is that this is a band you want to experience… first hand! This is the fourth album in the band’s ten year history of growing and settling comfortably into their own musical shoes. Having played extensively, and matured into a tight group, Ted Tosoff, (guitar, vocals), Rick Dalgarno (guitar, vocals), Gerry Berg (bass), and Mike Michalkow (drums), with added flavourings from Paul Wainwright, Dan Ross, Dave Hoerl, Brian Esplen, and Kelly Stoldola, Blue Voodoo has now come full circle from the beginning moving through the various forms of blues, Roots/Americana/Delta/Chicago/Country/Texas styles to come out with songs that satisfy and crossover. They more than meet you where it counts.
From the fast-
“We love the old players.” shared Tosoff. “We take our influences from them, plus the late guitar master, Gary Moore, who died suddenly earlier this year. We wanted to bring everything we had recorded… played… experienced… up to date. This was a lot of fun for us because we got to take it to another place. We wanted to go deeper than we had with the other three recordings, giving it a certain essence and then multiply it. “ This fourth album succeeds with that goal.
