Rumrunner the incredible debut from Hamilton's Bucket List has something old, something new, something borrowed and is all Blues. A phenomenal mix of cover and originals, the CD has energy and swing to spare.
It all kicks off with the new: three amazing original tracks about Hamilton history. The band jump and jives through well-told stories about Hammertown gangster Rocco Perri, the infamous Evelyn Dick and an early Hamilton music joint.
The lively history lesson continues as the guys borrow the Chuck Berry classic, Johnny B. Goode, adapt it to a Reggae beat and make it about Hamilton. Four boisterous covers from such luminaries as Albert Collins, Stevie Wonder and more, end off the recording.
The entire album is packed with dynamic, swinging, horn-filled Blues. It was made for dancing!
You can pick a copy of the CD at their live shows, Dr. Disc or Urban Hamilton Artists.
