J Roddy Walston was raised from day one to a musical lineage that included “both kinds of music – country and gospel.” Roddy and his band mates got their own acid mixture of country, gospel, blues and power-house rock n roll in “Mega Hail Boys”.
J Roddy Walston & The Business is wide known from their live shows, catching instant fans, and shaking big festivals around the U.S., and they lacked of a register that capture that. We saw them live last year at Lollapalooza and we can assure: Mr J Roddy “fingers on fire” Watson” and his band holds one of the most energetic rock n’ roll performances of today.
“Mega Hail Boys” is an energy-bomb inside a LP. J Roddy Walston’s piano bounce, flows and groove all over the record, and is the driving force behind the songs. Another factor that makes this record even more dynamite is that was totally a DIY process. The guys have become their own record label in an effort to see what they can do with this piece of work on their own. So far, they have already sold way more albums than expected, and are hitting the road to support it. Make yourself a favor and listen to this nerve-wrecking record and have a good time.
