Hard Garage / Blues sound
The 100 Watt Vipers were formed in Jacksonville Florida in early 2013, by long time friends Guitarist Paul Joseph,and Drummer/Vocalist DJ Riddick. According to their website bio: The two started Wood shedding in an old tin barn in Jacksonville for months working on songs and to get their sound together . It was either 120 degrees, or freezing cold for months but that’s were it came together and they found thier hard garage/ blues style. The sound developed naturally.
Album release “Cold Sunday Blues’
In early 2016 the 100 Watt Vipers released their full lenght album ‘Cold Sunday Blues’. “He Walks Off So Heavy” kicks off with some raw up lifting guitar. I like the following vocal which complete the headbanging mode you shure gonna reach. “Dirt Road Blues” starts with a similar groove rock beat and tough guitar riff. “Oh Lord I’m Down” contains my favorite guitar riff of this album. “Cold Sunday Blues” Delivers the dose of garage blues You’ve might been waiting for a long time, Guitar rock, grooving drums, raw-edged vocals, the 100 Watt Vipers.
The ingredients for a good Rock n Roll show are simple: a howlin’ voice, a screaming guitar, a steady beat, a crowd of crazy people and the finest liquor around. It was back in the day of the Chitlin´ Circuit the way to do it, and it is now. Reign Wolf aka Jordan Cook is a man that knows how to give a show like that. He recently released his album In The Dark in December.
In The Dark
In The Dark is a combination of Hardrock, Blues and Jimi Hendrix Guitar. On his website he explains it all for us: F*ckin’ REIGNWOLF is invading the streets unleashing throaty soulful howls, bleeding guitars plugged into smokey half stacks, and stomping on a vintage Ludwig bass drum. Thank you Reignwolf.
Reignwolf and the Reign man
It has been a while since I heard a band sound like Reignwolf. It is the Jimi Hendrix guitar, the Psychedelic Chicago Bluesbreak and the deep drums mixed into a whiskey from Seattle. Besides The Reign man , NBA legend Shawn Kemp, we can conclude that Reignwolf is the other dominant and powerful man in the Northwest.
Reignwolf live music
Reignwolf performed at many festivals this year, but I think his act also fits fine in a small pub. The smaller gigs where you got little space to tear down the venue. Listening to the music of Reignwolf, you know you´re gonna have a good time.
