The Highlight of Chaz's time in Galway came during last years Galway Arts Festival when he played support to one of his heroes Buddy Guy.In fact Guy himself was very impressed by DePaolo's playing...
Kevin Maguire - Galway Advertiser/July 24 2003


From a strict Pyrotechniques
angle Live From Montreal cannot be beat.

The cd overall is more of a SRV feel with emotional and blistering solos that remind you of the great blues players of yesteryear:Chuck Berry,SRV,King,Hendrix and Buddy Guy to name just a few.
Wayne Klinger - Guitar Nine.com/July 2002


John Richards,DJ at Galway Bay FM Galway Ireland picked Chaz DePaolo as the Best Act of the 2001 Galway Arts Festival. - Jon Richards/Galway Bay Fm 2002


11 Tracks,46 Mins.

Welcome to the world of commercial blues/rock music with this superb debut album from a gifted young naxeman with a soulful voice,from New York,by the name of Chaz DePaolo.If Chaz wasnt such a good composer he could have earned a good living impersonating Stevie Ray Vaughan most evidenced from the two tribute instrumental tracks Stevie's Favorite Shuffle and Chicago 101.However ,DePaolo is a raw new,diverse talent who is finding his own style quite nicely;an eclectic mix of traditional blues with rock and jazz.He is helped with his musicial vision bya highly competent band with a very distinctive Hammond B-3 played by Dave Lewis.Whether Flirtin' With The Blues,his own composition or adding new twists to classics like Checkin' on My Baby and Long Grey Mare,Chaz expresses a very personal and refreshing feel to the blues. Now based in New York,a city which is perfect for DePaolo's culturally diverse style,this man can really develop into one of the most exciting talents in 21st century electric blues music.

Bio

Chaz has many influences ranging from Jazz,Blues,Rock and acoustic singer song writers. He can be soulful or out right ferocious. Chaz loves the sensitivity of a Slow Blues and always considers the song first. Chaz's first blues release was a full length vocal cd called "Flirtin with The Blues"on the 95 North Records label. Chaz performs his own Blues compositions as well as several traditional tracks on this set. He can be found performing an acouistic/harmonica duo on the title track 'Flirtin with The Blues'. Chaz is now working on a follow up cd called "Bluestopia" to be released in Spring 2008.Also,Chaz and The Groundhogs Rhythm Section,a ledgendary British Blues band, have recorded a track for the 101 year anniversary of General Motors 'Cadillac'. The track is called "Cadillac Baby" and was featured on the 95 North records compilation"101 Years of Cool" A Tribute To The Cadiilac.
He is a huge Jazz fan and sites John Coltrane as a major influence as well as Lou Donaldson and Eric Dolphy. Chaz feels that horn players are truly the great improvisers of music. By listening to instruments other than guitar Chaz has been able to craft a truly unique sound.
