About The Blue Zone

FROM THE DESK OF DJ PETER RODMAN - LIGHTING 100 RADIO "Almost as soon as the music wafted from Printer's Alley, word spread about THE BLUE ZONE. And they came: BILLY PRESTON, J. GEILS, even Bluegrass Octogenarian BILL MONROE --- To take the stage and share the joyous blare of funk at its most bodacious, amid standing room sweat, stomping away the chill of a particularly bitter Nashville winter. THE BLUE ZONE had arrived, delivering a long lost letter from Stax/ Volt/ King/ Motown and the rest with a wiry vengeance; it was like watching the rebirth of your favorite monster, a musical Godzilla emerging, drenched and ready to devour all in sight, a power too long dormant, a feeling so cleansing that the lucky ones present would instantly remember what truly great music can accomplish on the spot, live, here and now. Much of that power has been harnessed in these first studio recordings by the best "House Band" anyone in the Music City had seen for years. Credit for credit, they have enough credentials to start a school all their own. Perhaps they have already done so --- in the grooves and passages of this even dozen tracks, which should easily propel even a casual listener to the place one can only call THE BLUE ZONE."

THE HISTORY OF THE BLUE ZONE BAND

“Hollywood” Paul Litteral, (trumpet player) is a Kentucky native. He moved to New York City and went on to form the world-renowned "Uptown Horns" with Saxophonist Arno Hecht. Along with Crispan Cioe (sax), and Bob Funk (trombone), their four-piece horn section spent 13 glorious years performing and recording with greats from all walks of music. Artists such as: Ray Charles, Etta James, James Brown, Sammy Davis Jr., The B 52s, Cameo and many more. While on tour with the Rolling Stones, Paul met Lorelei McBroom. She was a backing vocalist and featured soloist with Mick Jagger on the Urban Jungle/Steel Wheels tour. Paul and Lorelei decided to join musical forces after the conclusion of that tour. They moved to Nashville where Paul recorded and toured with Country Super Star Wynonna Judd. Songwriter Joey Gunn met Paul during a Judd tour break. Joey was looking for a bandleader to headline at a brand new club opening in Printers Alley. The theme of the club was a New Orleans style restaurant and bar, featuring live Blues and Classic R&B music five nights a week. During the sweltering heat of July, the Blue Zone launched. Soon thereafter, Lorelei joined the band as their featured lead vocalist. Along with keyboardist /vocalist Dave Innis of “Restless Heart”, bass player/vocalist Earl Peaks, guitarist/vocalist Sammy “Buzu” Stafford, drummer William Ellis and Saxophonist/vocalist Paulie Cerra they became the must see Blues Band in music city! They attracted the likes of Billy Preston, Slash (of Guns N’ Roses), the Etta James band, J. Geils, Magic Dick & Blues Time, Bobby Keyes (Of the Rolling Stones) and even Bluegrass legend Bill Monroe. The band was touted and showcased on “Sunday Night with Peter Rodman”, which aired on Nashville’s WRLT Lighting 100. Bob Solomon, then owner of Nashville’s Woodland Recording Studios became a fan of the BLUE ZONE. He offered to record the band. New York native Anthony Jackson and contrabass guitar legend flew down to Nashville and played on four of the CD’s tracks. He was a long time friend and recording partner of Lorelei McBroom. Jackson, having great respect for the band Paul Litteral had put together, even offered to move to The Music City to become a permanent band member, replacing Earl Peaks. The product of those sessions can be heard on their CD: “WELCOME TO THE BLUE ZONE”
