Album Notes

The Austin Band CD, Still Kickin', is like a delicious gumbo prepared with mouthwatering southern rock and seasoned with soulful blues. The songs are drippin' with lush down home harmonies, delectable southern-fried guitars, and flavored with a tasty fatback beat. This is the first CD by The Austin Band and has been years in the making. The Austin Band is based in southern Indiana and has traveled extensively over the years performing the rock and roll circuit in 12+ states.

In making the CD, the band wanted to capture the spirit of the groups that really inspired them to play. Songs are composed in the musical styles of southern rock (Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Allman Brothers Band, and ZZ Top) and traditional blues( Eric Claption, Stevie Ray Vaughn, etc).

Curious? Listen to the sound clips from the CD and see if you feel the same way as the band when they recorded it...

Recording this CD made us feel very young again! In fact, a couple of these songs were written years ago. We think you'll find that the music is straightforward, raw rock and blues. If you miss the great music of the late '60s and '70s, we think you will absolutely love it!

But don't take our word for it; see what others say. As one publisher put it...

They can play!!!!!

It's the first music I have listened to in a long time that made me pick up a harp. I can tell when a band is good because I can play the music very well without ever hearing it before - that's exactly what happened - if that tells you anything. The leads are rippin' and the one singer has a great blues voice and the other nice and clear. Freakin' Great would be an understatement! As the final proof of how good the music REALLY is - my wife hates it (she hates anything that's good and keeps you awake) and that's the yard stick every good band must live up to - If she hates it, you know it's good!!!
