Way back in the beginning of ninebullets I wrote a piece about the band Roxx Gang. There was a period in the late ’80’s I thought they were quite simply the bees knees.
Flash forward 20 years or so and former Roxx Gang frontman, Kevin Steele’s, new band, Mojo Gurus is celebrating the release of their new disc, Let’s Get Lit With. The Mojo Guru’s are, Kevin Steele, Vinnie Granese, Doc Lovett and Mark Busto and they’ve just signed a multi-album deal with True North Records. Along with Let’s Get Lit True North will be reissuing the Guru’s first two cd’s, Hot Damn and Shakin’ the Barn on March 24. To celebrate the occasion the Mojo Gurus are throwing a big ol’ party at Dave’s Aqua Lounge and you’re all invited. Joining them will be another one of Tampa’s shining lights, Tailgunner Joe and The Earls of Slander.
Let’s Get Lit features 13 tracks of straight forward southern rock meets a fifth of whiskey produced by Jody Gray at Pro Star Recording. The press release describes the music as “bourbon-soaked, gut bucket, glam meets twang” and I couldn’t really improve upon that. It’s rock and roll for the sake of sex, drugs and rock and roll. The world can be saved tomorrow.
So come out, get drunk, support your local music scene and buy some music.
