OB20:  Recycling Twenty Years of Oreo Blue

© 2012 Oreo Blue

 

 

It is nearly impossible to sum up 21 years of Oreo Blue, countless recordings and 9 official releases in oneparagraph.
However, one word comes to mind: Perseverance. In 1991, Brian Crowne had a vision to form a relevant blues-
rooted band and he had the work ethic to drive the band through a multitude of personnel changes and musical market
fluctuations to reach that goal. When Brian retired in September of 2006, it left the core of the band; co-founder and
bassist, Rod Williamson, guitarist, Gary Hutchison, and drummer, Stephen Boudreaux to re-invent the band and chase
relevance into the future. At first, the band soldiered on as a trio recording one album under that format, but it was with
the return of vocalist Chrissy Payton and the addition of keyboardist, Rick Endel that infused the band with new vigor.
Oreo Blue geared itself up for a live recording on New Years Eve of 2012 focusing on recycling the large body of
original music the band has produced over two decades. The result was thought to be a splash-down to a wonderful
and productive career, but instead, it is proving to be an unexpected launching pad. The band has a new, bigger and
more polished sound than ever and is intent on persevering as long as the fates and muses allow.

Over the course of the past 15 years, Oreo Blue has undergone a few transformations.  But the band always kept true to having that unique sound centered around the interplay between the soulful saxophone of Brian Crowne and the blistering guitar prowess of Gary Hutchison.  Through the last year, Brian Crowne has not only been the identity of the band, but he kept us working and focused on being one of the most professional unsigned bands in the region.  When Brian needed to take leave to focus on his family and business, it left the three of us needing to find our way.  The result is this recording:  Oreo Blue—The Trio.

A full length Concert DVD plus Audio CD
Produced by Brian Crowne

Oreo Blue offers this live Concert DVD/CD to pay homage to Jimi Hendrix for making such a positive impact on the music world.  We are truly fans and hope that you enjoy our interpretations of some of Jimi's songs and other songs that he made his own.  Knowing you can't improve on a legend we only celebrate his memory.  We felt Jimi was such a visual performer that a CD wouldn't be enough and a DVD & CD was only fitting. Oreo Blue will also donate a portion of the proceeds to VH1's Save the Music Foundation in Jimi's honor.
