 Dave Constantino Band
-Bump In The Road-
By Bob Silvestri

Dave Constantino’s musical status is legendary. He has been a pioneering force on the local and national music scene for many years as a member of such seminal bands as Talas, the Tweeds, Willie and The Reinhardts or Shyboy to name a few. Costantino was also in the inaugural class for induction to The Buffalo Music Hall of Fame. Yet after all these years he never found the time to release a solo disc. Now the wait is over with his release Bump In The Road. Ted and Tom Reinhardt supply the rhythm section here on drums and bass respectively. The three have played extensively over the years and have a complimentary style in their playing. This is bar room blues rock at its most powerful. Eight of the nine tracks here were written by Constantino with the lone exception being a blistering cover of Jimi Hendrix’s “Manic Depression”. Highlights here are the title track “Bump In The Road” a power rocker that best exemplifies the band, “Where You Hidin’”, “Mystery Man” and “Gave You Back”. The slower paced acoustic love song “Missing You” scores here as well. For more on Dave Constantino and his release Bump In The Road go to www.daveconstantino.com
