“The blues is gospel in a mini-skirt.”


That’s how drummer Hollywood Mike Darby summed up his band’s perspective on the music they play. Hearing Mike’s declaration, his bandmates, with their roots in Sunday morning gospel, suddenly sprouted smiles that said volumes about their Saturday nights on stage.  

That's the kind of attitude, vibes, and depth you'll find on the debut release by The Good The Bad And The Blues. They logged a full nine years on the circuit before finally putting their sound down on a studio album. Leader and singer Aayan Naim penned about half the record, including a get-up-and-shake-it winner called "I've Been Down." Johnny Rawls helped out with another six tunes, and the band claims the great Tyrone Davis classic "Turn Back The Hands Of Time" for the twenty-first century.

Blues Blast says:

"The opener, “Kind of Girl,” written by Naim and drummer Darby, has a relaxed, Memphis-flavored soul groove accompanied by some tasty horns. “Searchin’” is mid-tempo minor soul blues penned by Rawls, and features Naim’s emotional vocals front and center. Next up is the Naim-penned I’ve Been Down, a funky, up-tempo ode to perseverance, with some great horn charts, that Naim drives home with his powerful vocal."


The Edmonton Journal says:

"'It’s a mark of their rock solid chemistry that The Good the Bad and the Blues made it to the International Blues Challenge in Memphis several times, to the semi-finals in 2014, and to the finals round in 2015 (eight bands made the finals out of 330 entrants).


Today Naim and his crew take on a spectrum of sounds adding R&B, rock, pop, soul and funk but the band is rooted in Chicago blues."
