"STONEY CURTIS BAND 5th Shrapnel Records release HALO OF DARK MATTER released in 2013..."

The buzz has grown steadily on The Stoney Curtis Band since Shrapnel Records released the debut album from the veteran blues artist on July 19, 2005. This is one of those rare times when you can almost judge a record by its cover. From the title “Acid Blues Experience” to the front cover depicting Stoney Curtis caught live in the moment in front of a stack of amps, the listeners know to expect something special. The bands second release, "Raw and Real" was met with critical acclaim, including an ESSENTIAL ALBUM PICK by the All Music Guide... The Stoney Curtis Band has been working the circuit for years honing their own brand of psychedelic blues rock. Heavily steeped in 60’s/70’s psychedelia, the Stoney Curtis Band has translated the energy of their phenomenal live show into the grooves of “Acid Blues Experience" and "Raw and Real." Stoney Curtis Band has toured all over the USA, Europe and the UK several times.. They have appeared on the legendary "ROCKPALAST" in Europe.. In the tradition of classic blues-rock power-trios such as the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, and Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, the Stoney Curtis band are centered around their lead singer/lead guitarist Stoney Curtis who is, without a doubt, one of the most impressive Strat players on the circuit today. “I was going for the power of Zeppelin, the psycadelia of Cream and the Experience, the flow of Robin Trower Band,” explains Curtis. “We combined it all together with band-mates Charlie (drummer) and Colby (bass) to make it all Stoney Curtis Band.” It is no wonder why rows and rows of Harley’s line up anywhere in the world this band plays and people travel for miles to see this aggressive trio whip the crowd into a frenzy with their own brand of psychedelic blues rock, fueled by Stoney’s non-stop guitar pyrotechnics. Stoney describes where it all began - “It's totally my roots of Chicago. It's my Chicago sound - Hard Rock and Blues. I grew up on the South Side of Chicago before moving to Los Angeles. My friends & I grew up listening to Hard Rock, like UFO, Scorpions, KISS, Sabbath, Deep Purple, etc. as well as the Blues Rock like Robin Trower, Hendrix, Zeppelin and Clapton. The list is endless. But, it was when I saw BB King at Chicago Fest many moons ago that I totally fell in love with the blues. We became engulfed in it. I listened to "Ole Uncle Bill on some pirate station playing all sorts of deep blues. He always said "Sweet as Sugar, Smooth as Silk" I loved that. Then Stevie Ray became huge and everyone started listening to more blues. Seeing Son Seals when I was a wee teenager down at Blue Chicago off of Rush Street, showed me the power of a bluesman in a small club. He was electrifying... My music is soup in a crock pot of all these memories and sounds.” Stoney Curtis Band has released 2 albums for Shrapnel / Blues Bureau International Records in the USA and Provogue Records in Europe/UK/Asia. 4 Headlining tours of Europe and UK, which also included an appearence on the world renowned "ROCKPALAST"...
