Big Al And The Heavyweights - 2013 - Sunshine On Me

Big Al And The Heavyweights are a four piece blues band from New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. Sunshine On Me is their new LP. They meld Blues, Zydeco and some straight forward rock and roll into a catchy combination. Reminds of the Downchild Blues Band if Downchild had a swamp boogie feel. Highlights include Pass A Good Time, Peaches, So Many Women and Sunshine On Me. Don't You Want Me has the most use of a cabasa that I've heard in any popular music let alone the blues. If you like your blues very danceable with some swamp boogie Sunshine On Me will scratch that itch.
