Tomás Doncker Band 2014 Moanin' at Midnight: The Howlin' Wolf Project

Here we have a brand new advance release from NYC soul icon Tomás Doncker with his Tomás Doncker Band. Tomás is the head of True Groove Records, who recently signed a worldwide distribution deal with The Orchard. Because of his "global soul" mission and dedication to musical experimentation, he's been on CNN and Guitar World as well as headlining NYC Summerstage and the Shanghai World Expo.

His latest release is an expanded full-length tribute to one of his idols, Howlin' Wolf, whose website recently featured Tomás. Developed during a critically acclaimed run at NYC SummerStage during the summer of 2013, this project is now being shaped into a multimedia performance concert.

"We had been bouncing the idea of a blues" record around for awhile. A "hardcore" modern Blues record. Every time we discussed it The Wolf came up. Willie Dixon came up. "Smokestack Lightning", "Spoonful", "Evil" - on and on...The stories - so vivid, even today! We wanted to be a part of that lineage, that history. We wanted to tell that "Same Ol' Story" one mo' time...Our way! We felt the time was right." says Doncker about the release.
