What do you get when you mix two musicians with over 80 years of experience and a jam sheet that includes legends from rock, blues and country? You get Appa's Blues Power. Michael "Appa" Perry and "Uncle" John Turner had been friends for awhile and one day they decided to put together a blues band.

Michael "Appa" Perry started playing tunes back in 1962 at the young age of 13. He picked up the bass guitar a few years later and has played with Tom Jones, Jeff Healey, Jimmie Dale Court, Alabama, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Jim Talbot and many others.
"Uncle" John Turner started playing drums professionally back in 1957. He's played behind Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughan, B. B. King, Muddy Waters, Lightnin' Hopkins, Junior Wells and other who's who lists. He even played Woodstock and was inducted into the Texas Blues Music Hall of Fame. In Blues Power he drums, writes, and does vocals.

The band's CD, 6th Street, is nine tracks of fun original tunes. Beginning with "Shoulder Holster," written by Uncle John, "Shoulder Holster" is a tale about love gone astray. "Look in the closet baby, and bring my shoulder holster down. I see your husband up the street, might be some bullets flying round." With cool lyrics like that, a classic blues topic, and some killer guitar licks from Mike Keller, and ladies and gentlemen, we got us a blues song.

"Divorce Court on T.V." is another fun tune about real life blues and shows the band's sense of humor. Appa says, "'Astronaut Woman' was written by Uncle John for the space shuttle that flew over Austin one night." Mike Keller wrote and sings the fourth track "My Best Friend," that features keyboards from Matthew Farrell; both these guys are from the Keller Brothers Band. Appa wrote the slick instrumental "Get Straight," that features some electrifying guitar and keyboard work by the band.

Nick Gibson wrote the next tune, "Off the Bottom," and he also plays second guitar. Listen for the slide! Track 7, written and sung by Matthew Farrell is a slow paced tune called "Baby You Made Me Cry." Uncle John finishes up the last two songs on the CD, "I-10 Hurricane Blues" and the band's theme song with some power blues featuring his raw vocals an modern blues sound with lightning sax by Brad Andrews, stomping keyboard romps from Farrell and Mike's killer guitar. The Blues Power Theme gives each guy a chance to cut loose.

6th Street is entertaining, diverse and fun! (Joe Hall, Southwest Blues)
