Culling songs from their repertoire played on at the standing Monday night dinner shows Mad BoJo have released their debut self-titled album in March of 2020. A 14 song collection of traditional Blues, Rockin Soul, timeless favorites and new original tunes. The album opens with the first of seven tracks penned by Denton, the swinging “Crucify Me,” that is an homage to Blue Eyed Soul singers and features a luminous flute solo from Marinig. In the spirit of the groups Monday night shows Marinig then takes a turn at lead vocals on his groovy hard luck song “Been So Long,” then jumps on piano and hands Denton back the vocals for the 2nd line fueled swamper “Messin’ Up My Home.” Drummer Rick J Bowen handles the vocals on the slow Blues from Lary Davis, “Texas Flood,” made famous by Steve Ray Vaughn. Tom Jones steps up to the mic to guide us through the traditional lament “Wayfaring Stranger, “and Maring shows off his Sax chops the driving shuffle “Cold.” Opposite ends of the genre spectrum are represented on the melancholy “Killin’ Floor,” and the satirical “Anybody Can get The Blues.” Next up are classics “My Babe,” and “Let It Roll,” for good time fun before the funky originals “Won’t See me No More,” and Kickin’ You.” The honky tonk ramble “Red Rooster,” rounding out the strong debut from Mad BoJo.
