Altered Five Blues Band makes music with a swaggering stomp of bruising, barrelhouse grit. According to Downbeat magazine, frontman Jeff Taylor “sings powerfully” and “Jeff Schroedl’s live-wire guitar reaches the high bar of mixed invention and fluidity.” Blues Bytes magazine declares the group features “the funkiest rhythm section outside of Memphis.”
A 2018 Blues Music Award nominee, the Milwaukee-based quintet released its latest album, Ten Thousand Watts, in September 2019 on Blind Pig Records. Recorded over four days in Nashville, TN and produced by 3-time Grammy winner Tom Hambridge, the 12 tracks stir up a thunderstorm of original, roots-rockin’ music. Black Grooves magazine called it, "Shockingly good." The album reached #10 on the Billboard Blues Chart, and hit #1 on both the iTunes and Amazon blues charts.
Ten Thousand Watts arrives on the heels of back-to-back award-winning records. Cryin’ Mercy won Best Self-Released Album at the International Blues Challenge in 2015, and Charmed & Dangerous scored Song of the Year at both the Independent Music Awards and Wisconsin Music Awards in 2018. Guitar World magazine called the song “Charmed & Dangerous” a “menacing, swampy blues,” and the track has been in regular rotation on SiriusXM’s Bluesville.
Bassist Mark Solveson anchors the rock-solid rhythm section with drummer Alan Arber, who joined the band in 2017, and Raymond Tevich melds his crafty keyboard work to top off the group's signature sound.
