this is what EastPortlandBlog wrote about our new single:
Smokestack Lightnin – ElectroBluesSociety feat Boo Boo Davis
This is so beautiful it hurts. This is live Chicago blues. I’m thirty years past Chicago and I’d swear I rode the Englewoood-Howard B Train tonight, shared a bottle of Christian Brothers on the down low and got clotheslined by “the Hawk” wind when I transferred for the Ravenswood line. Heaven on a bone, Smiffy’s Ribs, testifyin’ for the blues, the signal’s coming in strong, someone got set free tonight.
Today the second single from our session with Boo Boo Davis was released on KuvVer Records.
KR 606 – ElectroBluesSociety feat Boo Boo Davis – Smokestack Lightnin
It is another classic Howlin Wolf song with a little ‘electrofication’. This song was also a regular in the Davis Brothers Band repertoire in the 60’s and 70’s.
Available on all streaming and download platforms
KR 605 – Tell Me – ElectroBluesSociety feat Boo Boo Davis
In October we spent a few hours recording with Boo Boo Davis. For this session we went back to basics and together we (re) visited some classic Chicago blues. For Boo Boo this was a trip down memory lane because all these songs were regulars in the Davis Brohers Band repertoire during the 18 years that they were the weekend house band in Tubby’s Red Room, a famous juke joint in East St Louis.
We recorded seven songs that will be released digital only as individual singles on KuvVer Records in the coming months. Yesterday we released the first one and it is now available on all platforms.

This is our third feature for ElectroBluesSociety this time the vocals are provided by Michel Peters on ‘I Got My Mojo Workin’. Once again the mixture of timeless natural blues is performed with passion and the modern electro influences add another fabulous dimension to the song.
Today we released a new single on KuvVer Records.
KR 604 – ElectroBluesSociety feat Michel Peters – I Got My Mojo Workin

Here is a short review from our new single that was published on the USA music blog:
We have featured ElectroBluesSociety just once before back in December 2016. I think it fair to say that the second feature has been worth the wait. ‘All The Way Down’ has the deep rich vocals of Jan Hidding where his natural blues singing is fabulous, the backing music is stripped back with a potent blues guitar and drums and just a small glimpse of electro sounds.
today Black and Tan Records released
