The Tablerockers - Shake Your Junk - 2004 - Fart Head Records

Recorded at George's Majestic Lounge, Dickson St, Fayetteville, Arkansas,"Shake Your Junk" is a good live album of "down to earth" blues rock played by The Tablerockers who are based in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. The band is composed of three experienced musicians: Bassist, Larry Boehmer, drummer David Watson, and Baby Jason Davis on Guitar and vocals. The band cover many music styles including R & B, soul, rockabilly, jazz, funk, rock 'n' roll and country. They also play many blues styles, including Delta and Texas blues, and tracks like Willie Dixon's "I'm Ready," Jimmy Reed's "Big Boss Man, "Otis Rush's "All Your Love" and Howlin' Wolf's "Shake for Me" are brilliantly played in a great Chicago blues style. If you like traditional blues rhythms, and straightforward well executed blues rock, you may like this album. Has anybody any info on other releases by this band?

ALBUM NOTES

"...Based in Eureka Springs, AR, this gutsy blues trio is comprised of a pair of expatriate Lincolnites (Nebraska), Baby Jason Davis on guitar and vocals and bassist and former Zoo Bar owner Larry Boehmer, along with drummer David Watson. This is the real stuff, done very, very well."...L. Kent Wolgamott, Lincoln Journal Star, 04/30/04

"I couldn't have assembled a better back-up band."...James Harman

"The Tablerockers are playin' the blues. They bad!"...Magic Slim

"I played it (The Tablerockers' CD) and I had to go to Alaska to cool off. They remind me a lot of Clapton's first band. I like them."...Sunshine Sonny Payne, King Biscuit Flour Hour, KFFA Radio, Helena, Arkansas

"This is a well-seasoned three-piece blues band in top form. The sound/mix of the CD is really, really good. The songs are hot, hot, hot, and so is Jason Davis, who makes a darn fine front man."...Betsy Finocchi, All About Town, Fayetteville, AR, July 21, 2004

"...Shake Your Junk is a solid album of barroom blues played by three veteran performers...Songs like Willie Dixon's "I'm Ready", Jimmy Reed's "Big Boss Man", Otis Rush's "All Your Love", BB King's "Thrill Is Gone", and Howlin' Wolf's "Shake For Me" immediately identify The Tablerockers as purveyors of the pure stuff. And they play it the way it should be played-with respect for the tradition, drawing strongly on the Chicago style, but with enough variation and personality to keep the music fresh."---GROUND ZERO, Lincoln, NE, June 18, 2004

"You guys were great last night. The best trio I've heard in a long time."---Sean Costello

The Tablerockers might not be a completely familiar name to blues aficionados across the US (or beyond), but if your tastes run toward high-powered blues with more than a gallon of rock guitar in the fuel tank for added punch, this CD will satisfy. Comprised of Baby Jason Davis on guitar and vocals, Larry Boehmer on bass, and David Watson nailing down the drums, this trio shoots from the hip and rolls through a pair of funky covers of Think and I'm Ready before kicking up the horsepower with a smoldering version of Jimmy Reed's Big Boss Man. Little Walter's Temperature is slowed to a crawl oozing power and passion, and while Baby Jason's guitar work might recall Jimmy Page and other rock heroes at times, he avoids many of the excesses that can sometimes drag a power trio into boredom. Otis Rush's All Your Love gets a heady treatment and proves Jason's guitar schooling comes from where it should, and even though B.B. King's Thrill Is Gone is a done-to-death warhorse, these guys handle it with enough originality to add freshness to it. Magic Sam's She Belongs To Me and Wolf's Shake For Me are potent and powerful, but the true sleeper might be Ball And A Biscuit, a slow grinder peppered with gritty guitar and hoarse vocals. While many blues/rock power trios fall into an abyss between ZZ Top and Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Tablerockers steer clear of that territory and it serves them well on this hot and sweaty disc recorded 'live' at George's Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

ABOUT THE BAND

The Tablerockers are influenced by a variety of musical styles that include Delta blues, Chicago and Texas blues, R & B, soul, rock-a-billy, jazz, funk, rock 'n' roll and even country, all filtered through the Tablerockers' blues sensibilities. The result is a high-powered blues attack featuring the smokin' guitar and soulful vocals of Baby Jason Davis, and the tight grooves provided by Larry Boehmer on bass and David Watson on drums. Guitarist and vocalist, Baby Jason, toured for 10 years with his trio, "Baby Jason and the Spankers". During that period, they played some of the top blues venues in the country, including Buddy Guy's Legends, Antones, the Grand Emporium, the Zoo Bar, and Blues On Grand. Jason has fronted the Tablerockers since 2002 and recently has added acting to his many talents. He also has the sole distinction of having played the South Loup River Blues Festival for 14 consecutive years, the last 7 with the Tablerockers. Drummer David Watson was born and raised in Dallas where he learned to shuffle from two of the best...his uncle Doyle Bramhall and the late Freddie Walden. David played with Keith Ferguson and Mr. Conrad in the Excellos and was also Anson Funderburgh's first drummer. David brings over 30 years of playing experience to the Tablerockers. Former owner of the Zoo Bar, bassist Larry Boehmer played with the "Nebraska" Tablerockers from 1981-1991, and was also a member of The Heartmurmurs, Not All There and Bobby Lowell and the Rocka-Boogie-Boys. Larry had the honor of playing bass with Charlie Musselwhite, Snooky Pryor, Carey Bell, Joe Houston, Larry Davis, and Magic Slim prior to his move to Arkansas. Over the last few years the Tablerockers have performed as a trio in clubs and festivals around the Midwest and Midsouth. They have also, on occasion, served as the backup band for James Harman, Magic Slim, Jimmy Thackery, Earl Cate, Madison Slim, RJ Mischo and Lewis Cowdrey. The Tablerockers currently have upcoming shows with both Harman and Mischo. Whether you see them by themselves or with one of their better-known blues friends, they'll rock your socks off.
