Done! The record is now finished, mixed and mastered. The artwork is in the final stages and then off it all goes to be pressed :-)
Well, the recordings are done and dusted! I have just finished mixing them with the great Abi Linden of Abbey Music, who has been involved now with three Houserockers CDs and one for the Backscratchers as well as for the Roger Mohr Duo. The next step is mastering, which should be done in the not-too-distant future. Then off to be pressed as an LP with a download code included for those who want the record but don't have a record-player :-) No CDs this time folks! Will keep you posted but this could well be one of my/our best records!
Balta Bordoy is arriving on 26 April for two gigs and some recording with us. We are playing as a trio (Roger, Marion and Balta) on 26 April in the "Umleiting" in Cologne and on 27 April in Topos, Leverkusen. 8pm.
We then go on to record on Saturday as a trio and then on Sunday together with Houserockers stalwart T-Man Michalke and jazz drummer extraordinaire Drori Mondlak. Should be fun!
Come by and say hi!
The widely respected historian, critic and shaker Jeff Scott Fleenor of Blues Junction Productions has us in his Top 10 for 2017. Wow! Thanks Jeff!
Wow! Thanks Don T-bone Erikson. We're very flattered to be on your top 50 list of blues albums at all and we are in VERY fine company! An honour. We are truly very happy that you appreciate our music and that of all the others on this amazing list. Keep up the great work!
Happy and excited to report that the great Balta Bordoy will be coming across at the end of April to not only play a few gigs with us but also to have some fun in the studio! I had the pleasure of playing with Balta in Barcelona as part of the 1st European Harp Attack and realised it would be great to do some recordings with him as a duo, trio with Marion on the piano and maybe some old-school quartett stuff! Will be great fun. More details to follow!
Roger has just returned from Barcelona where he played a few dates as part of the first Harp Attack, European Blues Reunion. He performed with the great Victor Puertas from Spain and the upcoming Thomas Toussaint from the Netherlands. Marion guested on the piano for one gig with Thomas and the amazing Balta Bordoy! There are plans for a 2nd Harp Attack, maybe in either Germany or the Netherlands. If anyone is interested in booking this for a special event, feel free to ask for more details.
New ideas for recordings in 2018 are in the pipeline :-)
