The second album by The Blues Rebels, produced by Blues hall-of-fame artist Joe Louis Walker! We are proud to present to you "Voodoo land", the new album by The Blues Rebels. For this album, the band decided to re-connect with Blues hall-of-fame member Joe Louis Walker, who had played several shows with them in 2013. Walker returned to Israel in the winter of 2016 to produce the album, which contains 12 new compositions by Dov Hammer and Andy Watts, featuring the bands signature sound, incorporating Blues, rock and funk, and includes a special guest appearance by Joe Louis Walker himself. Check out track 13, an electronic remix of "Well run dry" - Blues meets electronic music! The Blues Rebels began in 2012 as a one-time friendly jam between two veteran Blues artists – guitarist Andy Watts and singer/harmonica player Dov Hammer (who had previously played also with Zora Young, Deitra Farr, Billy Branch, Paul deLay, "King" Earnest Baker and many other American Blues artists) . The immediate chemistry between the two and the powerful stage show that resulted was undeniable. The Blues Rebels soon became one of the hottest Blues bands on the Israeli scene, playing with world-class Blues artists such as Joe Louis Walker, Lucky Peterson and Bernard Allison. The band was also chosen to open for the legendary Johnny Winter, who told the band how impressed he was by their performance. In March 2015 the band released its first self produced album "Open road" which received much praise from many Blues publications in Europe and the USA, as well as plenty of radio play in Europe and Israel. We hope you enjoy "Voodoo land"! The critics RAVE!! "Energizing musicianship and spot-on songwriting …Hammer and his fellow Rebels make magic in Voodoo land!" – Rainey Wetnight, "Blues Blast" magazine (USA) "Dov Hammer and Andy Watts know how to write a Blues tune. Songs like the title track, "Good enough", "Well run dry" and "Everybody loves my baby" (which features Joe Louis Walker) grab you the first time around. The band are good and the harmonica playing is of the highest order" – Stuart Hamilton "The Rocker" (UK) "A top notch CD. The band brings a mix of Chicago blues, rock, soul and jazz. They play well together, the texts are clear and musically their stuff is varied and is well put together. .. A great album that can also lead to The Blues Rebels towards being better known internationally." – Eric Kampfens "Blueszine NL" (Holland) THE BLUES REBELS
