April Shows, New CD!!, New LIVE Video, Amazon.com, Updates & 2014 Schedule!



Say Hey!

A slammin’ month this April. We’ll visit nearly every area we visit and also feature a really nice
Special Event: Keith Karloff Live Acoustic Performance and Interview on KPIG in the Santa Cruz Area (info below).

Looking forward to hanging with those fearless
Cruzans (they fear neither stormy surf, sharks nor peace) and the hard partying Mountain People. Featured Mountain Dancers this month are Jan, Willie and Ellie.
We also visit our friends in the East Bay
The Alameda County Crew (hi Irma!) at the comfy confines of Main St. Brewery in Pleasanton and we even drop in on our Country Cousins over in the Butte Lands of Marysville – these are tall folk! Featured Butte dancers are Katie and Kim.

See you soon!!


Here’s a
LIVE VIDEO of the title track from our current CD Greasefire!! captured at Crow's Nest, Santa Cruz. Click here!

Greasefire!!" is now on Amazon.com. If you have the CD (and we sure hope you do!) and would like to post a review, we might let you sit-in with, or even “front” the band – depending on how good it is ..

    Excerpts from two
    new "Mobile" reviews from the legendary BluesBlast Magazine (IL) and Northern Florida's own "Gainesville 365"


Gainesville 365 (FL)

The Bonedrivers "Mobile" (BlueBlack Records) BB 4444

In “Mobile,” Karloff gets his feet wet enough in Delta sound to make a believable anthem.  There’s not a shred of copycatting in any of the ten songs.  Things are kept simple for the most part, and this makes the CD a real gem.  As I listened to it, I pondered why it worked when it could easily have failed and I came up with a combination of two factors:  Simplicity and originality.  Karloff has authored a straight-up set of good old bar boogie minus the melancholy of inauthentic place and time.

The best of these tunes are “It’s a Beautiful Thing” and “Honky Tonk Prayer,” which Karloff has also cut for radio.  The first is a love song to, of all things, domestication of the male animal, and the second is one of the best “Southern” songs I’ve heard in decades.  Karloff doesn’t seem to be someone who overwrites and then has to mercilessly edit.  Music and lyric are in perfect balance and that is, I think, one of the hallmarks of the Southern rock genre in general or to all forms of song.

The other seven songs, including the Delta-stomper “Gimme Lightning,” are a roadmap, ranging from Memphis to the Carolinas and the deep bayou.  This might not be clear to the Northern ear and that’s fine, too. Bonedrivers are not a cover outfit and achieve success on their own merits and with some very hard work.  The biggest compliment I can pay them and their new album is that it is my earnest belief that they could slide right into some of our more discerning venues and fit right in.

The Bonedrivers "Mobile" (BlueBlack Records) BB 4444

Have I got a band for you if you’re partial to Foghat, Grand Funk Railroad, southern rock, BTO or the crunchier reaches of the Led Zeppelin catalog. Throw in a dash of The Outlaws and stir vigorously. Thick power chords, thumping jungle-drums, manic slide guitar excursions and even harmony vocals are here for the taking. Front man-guitarist-singer Keith Karloff leads his merry troupe thru power-rock accented by funk and the requisite positive “dude commander vibe”. Karloff stretches out his guitar prowess here in fine form and the lead vocals show more depth with each repeated listening.
Blues-rock paradise awaits you compliments of this San Francisco boogie band!

Live Lance Monthly review from Red Devil Lounge, San Francisco supporting The Yardbirds:

Red Devil Lounge, San Francisco
April 1, 2007

"Then came The Bonedrivers, a power trio so electrifying they could light a room of candles. Dripping with self-assurance, they covered all bases, from the blues to funk to standard rock and roll. Try to imagine ZZ Top battling it out with Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Jimi Hendrix Experience and George Thorogood and The Destroyers, and that should clue you in on where The Bonedrivers are at. The band delivered boogie rhythms by the score, the drumming was explosive, the vocals were pleasingly gritty and the guitar and bass work sizzled and slinked with thrilling sensations ... By the time The Yardbirds appeared, the crowd was already dangerously on fire."

Beverly Patterson, Lance Monthly, May 2007
