Buddy Hinds Band & Kate
"Out The Back Door"
Longtime blues-rock drummer Buddy
Hinds has released a new CD titled Sneakin’ Out The Back Door- The Buddy
Hinds Band & Kate. Kate in this case being Kate Engler. Rounding out
the band are Dave Schmeidler on guitar and Frank Reino on bass. The CD
was recorded live at The Tralf in downtown Buffalo.
The sixty minute CD is made up of originals written by Hinds and Engler,
some contemporary blues from the likes of Debbie Davies and the Uppity
Women Blues group and some standards like “Bo Diddley” and the Airplane’s
The real standout here
is Kate Engler. Her soulful blues voice raises her songs a notch higher
than the others. She commands your attention whether through her singing
or her rhythm guitar playing. She especially shines on the lead off track
“Breakin’ All The Rules”. Also of note are the tracks “This Dance Is Taken”
and “Better Off With The Blues”.
The boys also rock
out on a couple of tunes like “Trigger Happy” and the Frank Reino showcase
song “You Don’t Love Me”. Throughout the CD Hinds drumming propels each
song along and Schmeidler’s guitar playing is incredible.
