While playing some shows in the deep south some years back, Chad sat in with some old blues players in a juke joint just a stone's throw from the Mississippi River. It was one of those special nights in the Delta; steamy hot, the music ebbed and flowed with the packed dance floor with one song seemingly flowing into the next. Long after the gig was over, a group of musicians sat on a rickety porch, passing a bottle, songs, and stories with equal enthusiasm. Chad asked the patriarch of the group, an 89 year old blues veteran who had seen all the old blues greats in his day, why he thought so much great music had came from the area. "Well son, these swamps and rivers hold a special kind of magic. All this music you hear today; rock, country, blues, jazz, it all started right here. This place is like a living, breathing thing all it's own. I calls it The Huckleberry Soul".
Chad never forgot that conversation, and now, years later, the right group of musicians have come together to bridge the gap between country, rock, soul, and blues. There was no question as to the name of the new ensemble.
"Catching a Huckleberry Soul show is like living American history, but at the same time seeing it's future....and the future looks promising!"
