Guitar Mikey & The Real Thing
Jam Zero I
(C) 2008, Gary W. Miller BluesSource.com 2008-01-10 --BluesSource.com

Guitar Mikey comes on strong, with flashes of razor-edged picking and incredible fireworks on the guitar.   His CD release party, at Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale, MS, had the whole joint absolutely jumping.   This guy is a volatile player with energy galore.   Here is Blues-Rock & Delta roots fused together, making for startling displays of fretwork and pure Funkiness.   From originals to old favorites, Mikey does a fine job of meshing the old with the new.   The CD is a true Jam, featuring Guitar Mikey on guitar, Eric Fowler on Drums, Daddy Rich on Bass, Cheryl Arena on Harp, Marc Yacovone on Keyboards and Nellie Tiger Travis on several vocal tracks.  

His haunting version of All Your Love shows off his flashy fretwork and imaginative style.   Daddy Rich s Clarksdale is here and is already a hit in Clarksdale on WROX radio.   This is Mikey & the band s version, which is great, as you can hear from the crowd response.   Nellie Tiger Travis version s of Let the Good Times Roll & I d Rather Go Blind may be covers, but they are more than just competent covers.   She really belts out the Blues & we expect to hear much more from her.   There are a lot of covers here, however they are all well done and imaginative.   One thing for sure is that Mikey s guitar-playing is HOT!
