“13 Reasons to buy a CD..........................
Rise, and join the Faithful in welcoming the release of 13 reasons, the debut album from North Jersey blues band, The Congregation. With a confluence of talent as diverse their individual influences, this gathering of musicians delivers a listening experience forged from country, folk, punk, and rock unlike any other. The result is a beautifully twisted blues worthy of believing in.
The smoky velvet vocals have a cowboy’s swagger and the biting rhythms take hold of your grateful flesh and won’t let go. The brilliant guitar, organic bass , and lyrical prowess swirl together into a wicked brew that tempts and sates the most discriminating musical appetite.
The Congregation is Evil (Mark Paleologo), vocals. Charles Wegman, guitar. Sal Shepherd, bass. Rick Kalinsky, drums. The October xx, 2010 release is produced by Ben Elliott and Nasty Ned on the American Showplace Music record label. The debut album is now available on iTunes!”
