Bio: Big Gene and Danny Lee’s Loud Pack is East Tennessee’s hottest new blues band! This group is a winning combination of powerful, soulful vocals mixed with a team of excellent veteran guitars, screaming organ, and a rock-steady rhythm section. This may be the first time you have heard of this ban...See Full Bio
“The Loud Pack is a tremendously exciting band, firmly rooted in traditional blues but with a solid dose of sweet soul.. Dig the very first track on the Mix EP, “Gonna Be Fine.” Steve Michel (guitar)( and rhythm section) lay down a solid, mid-tempo shuffle. Stevie Jones’s organ pad tips the scale in the direction of greasy Memphis soul. And when Big Gene Chandler begins to sing…well, it’s all over. He’s got that elusive “it,” that edgy, emotive quality to the voice that all the best deep soul singers (have)...Danny Lee Michel’s guitar lines are terse and incisive, a bit jagged (the better to create tension), and eminently toneful. A great melody and sensible lyrics seal the deal...Their songwriting is appealingly catchy. The rhythm section has an unfailingly good feel, and the keys and guitar up front balance the solo options and the sound. Both Jones and Michel have terrific instincts, and play with creativity and great tone...Big Gene is a truly exceptional singer..”
