Studebaker John's Maxwell Street Kings: That's The Way You Do

The Maxwell Street Kings are paying tribute to the wild and early days of electric blues in Chicago when blues giants like Muddy, Wolf, or Elmore James were playing in smoky southside clubs. Without ever sounding romantic or nostalgic, this trio has recorded a fine set of original material. Dirty, rough, raw and wild sounds bringing back memories of the days when Chicago style was inventive and seminal. STUDEBAKER JOHN - gtr/slide gtr/hca/voc, RICK KREHER - gtr, STEVE CUSHING - drums.

Studebaker John Co-Producer, Vocals, Slide Guitar, Harp John is an internationally-renowned bluesman whose life in the Blues was inspired by his early experience at the Maxwell Street Market and nearby clubs. He established a loyal fan base while leading his band, the Hawks, and releasing albums on the Blind Pig, Evidence, St. George, Parsifal and Avanti record labels. A prolific songwriter, his compositions have been covered by many other artists, and his recordings have appeared in films and on television.

Rick Kreher Co-Producer, Guitar, Backing Vocals Rick has been on the Chicago Blues scene for many years. Some of his earliest memories are of visits to the legendary Maxwell Street Market on early Sunday mornings. Rick has played and recorded with many of the city's blues legends including a lengthy stint as the last guitar player in the great Muddy Waters Blues Band. Recently he has put his efforts into helping the few remaining Chicago blues greats with recording and tour dates.

Steve Cushing Drums Steve is possibly the only Chicago drummer left who naturally plays in the style of the early blues giants. His feel for the music developed during years of playing behind blues greats such as Big Smokey Smothers, Magic Slim, Billy Boy Arnold and countless others. Steve is also the host of the long running National Public Radio show, 'Blues Before Sunrise'.


Mike Konopka Co-Producer/Engineer Mike has been a journeyman recording engineer and producer in Chicago for over 30 years. His recent clients include Derek Trucks, North Mississippi All-stars, Wilco and Ray Davies of the Kinks.

Artist description "Studebaker John"

Studebaker John


Like the classic auto that he named himself after when first embarking on his prolific blues journey. Studebaker John keeps right on roll-ing. offering devotees of tough, no-nonsense Chicago blues. A rollicking. raucous ride viv-idly conjuring up the idiom's hallowed heyday. John was proud to be old school long be-fore the term became fashionable, combining full-bodied harmonica. crashing slide guitar. and no-holds-barred vocals into a convincing whole. He's also a talented songwriter. Spirited echoes of his Windy City blues heroes can be detected floating through his songs. but there's no doubt they're all his. After more than four decades in the blues business. Studebaker John has paid his dues in full. Chicago native John Grimaldi was drawn to the harmonica when he was seven years old. picking up his father's chromatic and blowing his first notes. A couple of years later, the lad was a helper for his old man's construction plumbing firm. There was a job on Maxwell Street. the legendary open-air market, and dur-ing a break Grimaldi happened across Big John Wrencher, holding musical court with a small amplified combo. The one-armed harpist didn't require a fancy chromatic to wail, wringing bent notes from a standard diatonic model.

That's how Studebaker John discovered the blues. It wasn't an overnight conversion. During junior high and high school, John played drums in amateur rock and roll combos. at time doubling simultaneously on harp without using a rack. He added vocals to his musical arsenal as well. The bluesier emissaries of the British Invasion left their mark. By the late '60s. John decided to concentrate on blues. leaving the less seri-ous stuff behind. Muddy. Elmore, Little Walter, and the Wolf had seduced him permanently. The last piece of the puzzle fell into place at an all-ages show starring the lovably rowdy Hound Dog Taylor. When Hound Dog unleashed his blistering slide, making magic on the hum-blest of guitars (making it all the more cosmic. fellow bottleneck master J.B. Hutto sat in that day). John knew he had to follow suit. Before long, he'd mastered the slide guitar as well. Maxwell Street became John's musical stomping ground when that legendary thor-oughfare was really jumping.

You could buy anything your heart desired on that delightfully gritty avenue, the accompanying blues sound-track coming as a free bonus. Big Walter Hor-ton, Johnny Littlejohn, and plenty more were right there in the flesh, tools of their trade in hand, pumping out raw. invigorating blues on the bustling street. Big Walter's savvy advice to John about the importance of developing a style of his own resonated deeply. Just to make sure folks didn't forget his singular so-briquet, the young bluesman drove a Stude-baker Lark (he now pilots a 1963 Studebaker Silver Hawk—a cool car for a cool cat). Learning his trade took John all over the South and West Side. He sat in at the Check-erboard with Buddy Guy and Junior Wells, mounted the stage at Theresa's. and gigged at holes-in-the-wall where anything could hap-pen and sometimes did. John formed the first incarnation of his rowdy combo, the Hawks, and got down to business as a professional bandleader. Most of the blues greats were still active and maintaining their citywide follow-ings, but John persevered. making inroads on the North Side as the decade progressed. In 2010. Studebaker John and his Max-well Street Kings—guitarist Rick Kreher and drummer Steve Cushing (the longtime host of National Public Radio's Blues Before Sunrise)—joined the Delmark Records fam-ily. Their first storming release, That's The Way You Do, stands as one of John's fieriest releases to date. a joyous celebration of the raw. relentless sounds that once defined the Maxwell Street experience.

John followed it on Delmark with 2012's aptly christened Old School Rockin'. another generous slab of glorious boogies and blues. stripped-down and sweaty. Kingsville Jukin' is Studebaker John's third Delmark offering, snarling and uncom-promising like its pair of predecessors. Kreher (one of the stalwarts in Muddy Waters' last great band during the early '80s) and shuffle specialist Cushing are back on board, as is bassist Bob Halaj (formerly with Big Twist and the Mellow Fellows and the Chicago Rhythm & Blues Kings), who keeps the grooves cook-ing on the bottom. With Studebaker John seated behind the wheel. a righteous blues journey is assured. — Bill Dahl
