Grisham and his band have been burning up the blues from their Alabama
home and throughout the land for a lot of years now, and we have seen
them constantly deliver the goods both live and on record. Well kids,
Five Moons kicks it all up yet another notch.
All twelve tracks were written or co-written by Grisham, who may be
one of the finest blues songwriters in the good ol’ USA. From the
opening riffs of “Pale White Circle,” to the absolutely original
arrangement of “Voodoo Satin Doll,” The Beat Daddys stand and deliver.
The band is joined by former Allman Brother Johnny Neel on several
tracks, including the awesome “Big Thighs,” but for me, the title
track is my favorite of all. “Five Moons” is a brilliant lyric and the
song seems to blend Southern blues with an almost sixties psychedelic
vibe, with Grisham accenting the whole thing with incredible blues
The Beat Daddys are not your run of the mill blues band. They are
different. They “know something.” It’s the blues with a large
dose of artistic creativity. Good stuff, top to bottom."

put on a hell of a live show."
