Scott Weis Band Blues Hall of Fame Inductee 2012
Scott Weis & Soul Krewe is a blues, rock, and soul-funk band with a spice shaker of New Orleans added in. Seasoned veteran musicians Scott Weis, Andy Pace and Todd Lanka are the core of the band with gifted guest musicians appearing throughout the project. There is a spark that ignites when the three of us are in the same room making music.
Lead man and writer Scott Weis is a Blues Hall of Fame Inductee and has worked alongside some of the biggest legends in music including Junior Wells, Joe Cocker, Richie Havens and John Lee Hooker. Drummer and cowriter Andy Pace was the drummer for C+C Music Factory and has appeared on SNL, American Music Awards, MTV Music Awards, and most late-night shows. Andy has worked with Gary US Bonds, Kim Simmonds of Foghat, and Jerry Le Croix of Edgar Winter. Bassist Todd Lanka has supported recording artists and bands from a wide variety of genres including Steve Forbert.
This album came together in two days of sessions, basic tracks were all laid live, and some small overdubs followed. The original intention was to just get together and have some fun, but after listening to the tracks we knew we had something special. The music that came out of these sessions is moving and full of color and vibes that grab your attention. We hope you find it to be as moving as we do.
