  Who's in the House
Blue House Band
Review by Al Campbell
The debut release from south Florida's Blue House Band contains 13 cuts that are steeped in electric blues with stylistic shifts that incorporate boogie rock, modern jump blues and Southern rock. Guitarist/vocalist Robbie Alter, bassist Richie Goldman, and drummer Bobby "BB G" Goldman let their modern influences shine with nods to Stevie Ray Vaughan ("Dynomite"), Canned Heat ("Age Old Secret"), and Jimi Hendrix ("Won't Forget My Spoons"). Rounding out the trio on Who's in the House with occasional assistance are slide guitarist Bryan Bassett, Michael Marciano on harp, and vocalist Holly Doherty. All 13 of these songs are original compositions, which is refreshing and somewhat unique for a blues band's first album. If this form of classic American music is to continue gaining listeners, fresh material should be favored over yet another version of tried and true standards like "Dust My Broom," "Boom Boom," "Sweet Home Chicago," et al. On their debut release the Blue House Band pull it off, and by doing so they set themselves apart from the get-go.
