HOLY SMOKES and GEE WIZ! The Michael Louis Band brings one of the most
impressive rock n' roll projects we've heard this year. On the band's latest release,
Morning Gasoline, The MLB brings their own brand of tasty treats wrapped in what they
call, "Brooklyn Swamp Music". This sound is like a slice of NYC pizza pie, with a big ole
glass of country Georgia sweet tea on the side. Get your earpetite ready for one of the
greatest musical feasts its ever had.
Opening up the album is the title track, "Morning Gasoline", which is a smash hit in my
book. The song is well written, and Michael Louis delivers a great vocal performance atop
some of the hottest music production in circulation today. It's not easy to produce a song
that, if given the right exposure, would land a band in heavy rotation at top rock stations
and likely a Grammy nod. If you want to hear how great blues-rock music should be done,
check out this track.
In addition to the title track, The Michael Louis Band offers their own rendition of Stevie
Wonder's classic hit, "Superstition," and I must say, "The boys killed it!" The fact that The
MLB even had the gonads to try it is a reason to give it a listen, not to mention show
some serious respect to them for doing a great job interpreting one of Stevie's greatest
Overall, both The Michael Louis Band and their album, Morning Gasoline, are both major
assets to the music industry. This band's contributions to the artform of crafting great
songs are appreciated by the folks at I Am Entertainment Magazine. If you're looking for
the perfect gift to give this Christmas holiday, and the recipient is a fan of great rock n'
roll music, this is a great option.
