Genre: Rock

Strike Up The Band the new album by Professor Louie & The Crowmatix on Woodstock Records has nine of ten biographical and creative original songs written by Professor Louie & Miss Marie. This Legacy Allstar Roots Band continues to grow and these talented musicians, singers and songwriters wrote these songs that reflect a unique vision of relationships and thoughts about this tumultuous world and the times we live in. The 9th song, End Of The Show, (unknown writer) is a tune originally recorded by Richard Manuel of Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame group The Band that was never released. Louie came across this song on a poorly recorded cassette when he was working as Producer for a Box Set by The Band. PL&C wrote songs for Strike Up The Band to be upbeat and uplifting. The album gets off to a blistering start with the strong opening accapella vocal by Professor Louie on A Thousand Ways To Freedom. Next is the driving groove of Work it Out with The Woodstock Horns, arranged by drummer Gary Burke, and then the bluesy vocal stylings of Miss Marie on the tune Fall Back On Me. Hear the magic riffs of guitatist extradinaire John Platania throughout and on his collaborative writing for the song Good To Be Grateful. On Chain Shot Cannonball, Gary Burke one of the greatest drummers of all time and Frank Campbell on bass make the songs rock. Tracks & vocals were recorded live in the studio capturing the true nature of this legacy band. Professor Louie's strong vocals, Hammond Organ, piano & accordion playing is at the highest musical level throughout Strike Up The Band, especially on End of The Show. Background vocals by Miss Marie, Frank Campbell & Louie bring a souful edge to the songs. Some of the greatest work of their careers. Roots/Rock/Americana at it's best! Bob Ludwig, mastering genius of all time, makes the recording's come to life. "Roots Music Royalty!" Bill Hurley - The Extended Play Sessions
