September 2012

Man, I sometimes long for the days when music truly moved me and meshed seamlessly with my sensibilities… the kind of rock that didn’t need over-analysis, and just made me want to bust an ear-to-ear grin and raise my fist in the air. Music that connects with one’s nether regions, if you get that. Needless to say, I am SO happy I found Convoy! These guys play the rock that satisfies my soul, and their new CD “Blue Collar America” is just what the doctor ordered!

Hailing from Westmont, IL, Convoy formed in 2009 around the riff-heavy songs of singer Brian Corbin, anchored to the beat by the rock solid rhythm section of “Big D” Dan Thompson on bass and wildman drummer Mike Getz. Convoy is rounded off by uber-talented musician Johnny Daniels on lead guitar. I hope they stick around for many years to come, because their first couple CDs show a ton of promise, and “Blue Collar America” is a true-blue hard rock masterpiece!

The songs are about booze, parties, cars, girls, and the military. Stand-out tracks are “Damage Done” & “Need For Speed”, but really the whole disc kicks butt from start to finish. Thank goodness Convoy hasn’t forgotten that rock ‘n roll is supposed to be FUN!
