Take the blues, ship it to Europe, mix it up, shake it around, add killer groove, bring it home and you get the sound and flavor of the John Weeks Band. Based on classic blues lines, these songs take it in a different direction. This is their first CD and all it takes is one listen to realize that this is not your classic blues album. You've got Delta, you've got Chicago, you've got Latin, you've got funk and even a flavor of modern dance groove!

John was born in France and got a lot of his musical chops playing the bars and clubs of Paris in the 1990's. Andras (AC) is from Hungary and developed a taste for the blues at a very early age. John's guitar work and AC's keyboard and harp playing intertwine over a groove that is 2nd to none (witness the simple yet extraordinarily effective bass line written by Curtis Hawkins on "Moving On"). That's the flavor and trademark of the band and they do it very well indeed!

Here's a very recent review (Bill Wilson, Reflections in Blue--October 1, 2014)... "I am always intrigued when something like this comes across my desk, Plain and simple, black & white cover with no mind-blowing photos, very little info on the band except for a picture of the band , the musicians name and song titles, with little else. I never know quite what to expect…and often that is a really good thing. A search on the net tells me that Weeks currently lives in Denver and is quite active and in demand there. Born in France and working on his chops in the bars and clubs of Paris in the 1990s, he moved this direction and the new band had its start in the later part of 2013. Andras Csapo hails from Hungary and was influenced by Muddy Waters, Charlie Musselwhite and the Rolling Stones. I was particularly intrigued when I read on Weeks website that the Allman Brothers, Clapton and Hendrix were his early influences, but he soon gravitated more towards the world of Blues. Freddie King was the catalyst…there was no recovery after that revelation. Finally, I had encountered a man who noticed the subtle differences between blues and rock or, at best, blues/rock. Please do not misunderstand me; I love Hendrix, Clapton and the Allman Brothers dearly. Having grown up when I did, it was impossible not to be a fan. Now, back to the matter at hand…the John Weeks Band. With Weeks on guitar & vocals, Andras “AC” Csapo on keyboards, harmonica & vocals, Curtis Hawkins on bass and Tim “Chooch” Molinario on drums we have the makings of a real blues band. Their diversity of blues styles, obvious hard work honing their skills and deep devotion to the blues makes for a great album and one that, while it is diverse, stays true to the blues through and through. One of the things that I found most exciting was their straight-ahead, almost simplistic approach to the music. This is their first album and a keeper to be sure. There is nothing pretentious here, just a group of guys with a love for the music in common. This is scheduled to be released on October 4th and is just one more indication that Blues is the universal language. Great job guys, keep up the good work" – Bill Wilson
