Frank Bang Blinkal former Buddy Guy Guitarist and Leader of Frank Bang & the Secret Stash has been waiting to make this record. The disc The Blues Dont Care is scheduled for summer 2016 release. This marks Frank Bangs first true Blues recording in the Blues journey mans 25 year career.
I have been waiting to make this record, Frank Bang & the Cook County Kings my whole life.
Frank Bang, who is born and raised in Chicago, worked his way up through the ranks to play with Blues Master and Legend Buddy Guy. As Buddys guitar player for 5 years I always was the blues guitarist in every band I played in, no matter Funk, or Rock
I was always the Blues guy in the band. The Love of his Chicago Blues led him to Buddy Guys Legends.
I started there in 1991, I did everything from change the merchandise, to paint the place. I even cooked brunch two Blues Festival weekends with Sam Guy, Buddys brother.
Between Buddy Guy, Magic Slim and The Teardrops and just the club Legends changed my life forever.
It all came full circle when I joined Buddy Guys band at the end of 1999. It was an incredible experience, playing with Buddy every night for 5 years, Touring every summer with B.B. King, seeing the world , playing with your idols and inspiring the greats that inspired me.It was an amazing experience.
Frank Bang & the Secret Stash was a blues rock band. Now Bang is back with his first ever Blues record. Frank Bang & the Cook County Kings The Blues Dont Care. We recorded all 10 tracks in one day! That wasnt the plan its just how it happened! explains Bang. All my favorite Blues records were live. We just rolled and recorded, almost everything was a first take.
The Blues Dont Care features a whos who of great Chicago Blues Sidemen. Besides Bang, The Rhythm section of Brian BJ Jones has recorded with Blues Greats Junior Wells, James Cotton, Otis Rush. BJ was the drummer in Magic Slim and The Teardrops with partner in crime Andre Howard on Bass. Besides Magic Slim and The Teardrops, Andre played with Lonnie Brooks, Lucky Peterson, Sly Johnson and Chico Banks. The great foundation they bring to the music is only highlighted by the great Blues background vocals they sing throughout the disc.
Added to the mix is Piano Great Donnie Nichilo a former Buddy Guy and Junior Wells Alumni and founding member of The Mighty Blue Kings. Donnie added the perfect spice on every song.
Last, but not least is Harmonica Player Russ Green. Russ not only grew up in Chicago learning from the greats and touring with Lurrie Bell and John Primer. Russ also won a BMA for producing Best New Artist Big Llou Johnson. One only wonders, if Russ Green wont win a BMA award himself after hearing him tear into these songs.
Together Frank Bang & the Cook County King have nailed it! First take! A great Blues record, recorded Live with a vibe thats straight off the stage of a Chicago Blues Club at Midnight.
