The Front Street Blues Band "Second Set"

Catfish John Tisdell

Catfish John put together The Front Street Blues Band soon after moving to Maui in 1991. They were based in Lahaina and stayed together for about three years. One of the night clubs they regularly played in was called "Ludwigs". ( Owned by a family member of the Ludwig Drum co. ) Many of the songs on this album were recorded live at Ludwigs.
Like most bands it went through some changes as it evolved, but each one always made the group stronger. The band was named after the historic "Front Street" in Lahaina. They would sometimes play in clubs along Front Street, and so they adopted the name.

Love To Rock And Roll

Catfish John Tisdell

This album features three original songs and many other classic rock n' roll and blues cover tracks. It was recorded in one afternoon as a three piece "power trio", and most songs were recorded in just one "take". Though it may lack the polish of a fully produced studio album, it does manage to capture a lot of the raw energy of the performances .

Special thanks goes to Steve Wright for playing drums and doing the engineering, and to Rick Martinelli for playing bass and providing the chocolate chips.

Honky Tonk Blues

Catfish John Tisdell

This collection of blues, rock n' roll and country songs was recorded "live" at various bars, night clubs, or "Honky Tonks". It keeps the vibe of a typical "bar gig", complete with mistakes, background noises, bad mixes, and whoops and hollers. You can almost smell the beer and cigarette smoke. The important thing here, is having a good time. This album is dedicated to the gang hangin' out at the local Honky Tonk.

Honky Tonk:
A cheap or disreputable bar, club, or dance hall, typically where country music is played.
