review of New cd Night Train Home Our new cd Night Train Home was released in august 2010--this will be the page of reviews and testimonials of the cd!



The new CD "Night Train Home" by the Double Barrel Blues Band moves the blues into the Twenty-first century with excitement. Mark Cloutier's playing reflects traditional guitar stylings of the past while inventively pushing his blues solos to new dimension. His composition, " Stratgun In Our Hands," is one of the most innovative songs heard in years.

John Hart's splendid song writing and unique singing style (not to mention his swinging guitar groove and slide work) make this band one of a kind. He seems to have lived every note he sings.

The two “barrels” of this band enjoy the freedom to be lifted by the music because of the wonderful rhythm section of Bill Satterly on bass and Garnet Grimm on drums. They support the vocals and guitar work when appropriate but comment tastefully on every track. Any airborne musician would enjoy flying above these supporting players.

Mark Bialczak review::::
Here's his Post-Standard review of The Double Barrel Blues Band's "Bad Bad Feeling."
Listen to "Bad Bad Feeling" and you'll get the urge to sit in a bar and sweat with the Double Barrel Blues Band.
The Syracuse foursome lays down the sound with an obvious love for and equally apparent talent for blues played the way it oughta be.
Guitarist Mark Cloutier can play it fast and hot or slow and tense.
Singer John Hart can add the grit or spread the honey.
Bassist Bill Satterly and drummer Garnett Grimm Sr. keep it real.
Satterly wrote the title cut, and Cloutier's guitar work will send shivers down your spine as Hart sings, "Sometimes it feels like a black cat crossed my path. Sometimes it feels like I got a target on my back."
Yet they also know that the blues can celebrate good times, too. In Cloutier's original "Flipping and Flapping," they see what can come from romancing their high-heeled baby. "I'm gonna buy you a shoe store, so you don't have to wear old shoes no more," Cloutier sings.
The well-picked covers start with a tasty "Wine Wine Wine" and finish with an anguished "Tin Pan Alley." "All the people down there, well they're living for the whiskey, wine and gin," Hart sings. Hoist one for the blues.

"Bad, Bad Feeling"
Blues Lion Records
BY PETER "BLEWZZMAN" LAURO, © June 2009

The Double Barrel Blues Band bills themselves as an intense, exciting, rocking blues band that plays "In Your Face Blues". If that's true, then I'm sure to have a good, good feeling about "Bad, Bad Feeling" - the second release from this Syracuse, NY based band.
Members of Double Barrel include: Mark Cloutier on Lead Guitar & Vocals, John Hart on Vocals & Slide Guitar, Bill Satterly on Bass, and Garnett Grimm on Drums. The disc contains ten tracks of which six are band originals.
Everyone's partying hard on the opening track, that ya gotta wonder if the guys aren't just singing about it but sucking on some of that "Wine, Wine, Wine", as well. This is an all out jam on which the band immediately lives up to their self description. This one rocks! It's highlighted by intense rhythm from Bill and Garnett and lots of smokin' guitar leads by Mark. Real good stuff.
Things slow down a bit on the title track, an original called "Bad, Bad, Feeling". This is a real blues burner that has everyone in a mellow groove behind lots of smoking blues guitar highlights from Mark.
Somewhere between the opening track and here, the guys must have switched over to the hard stuff, because they now have the "Whiskey Blues". It's stuff like this that gives the Double Barrel Blues Band the right to say they're blues is in your face. It doesn't get any more straight up than this. John's vocals and Mark's guitar work on this track are what the blues is all about. Discs best, right here.
The name of this track - "B Flat Bone Boogie" - pretty much describes it. It's a smokin' instrumental that will have you boogieing down to your bones. If you can sit still through this one, then you gotta be in a body cast.
is another slow and low down blues burner.....the kind of stuff I can listen to all night long. Although he's pretty hot on all tracks, this one may feature some of Mark's best guitar work. In addition to getting down in the alley on vocals, this one has John sounding very impressive on slide guitar as well.

Other tracks on "Bad, Bad Feeling" include: "Matchbox", "Voodoo Thing", "Restless One", "If You Find I'm Gone" and "Flipping And Flapping".
This is quite an impressive effort by the Double Barrel Blues Band, and I've got to admit that they've certainly lived up to their reputation. "Bad, Bad Feeling" was exciting, rocking and in your face kinda blues. Great work guys!
Check the guys out by going to www.doublebarrelbluesband.com. Feel free to tell them you stopped by to pick up a copy of their "Blewzz Approved" CD.

Mark Cloutier

Blues Lion Blues

Mark Cloutier (started playing guitar at 14 years old and has been playing for 30 years now.) and his guitar work will send shivers down your spine. He can play it fast and hot or slow and tense ... and is a guitarist making waves in the music world. The evolution of a blue's guitar player who immerses himself totally in his craft is a beautiful thing. "Sometimes it feels like a black cat crossed my path. Sometimes it feels like I got a target on my back." speaks directly to Mark's style. This departure from his Double Barrel Blues Band project is a rewarding experience. All of us here, want to hear more of Mark Cloutier and that Blues Lion roar.

REVIEW::



BLUES LION BLUES
Mark Cloutier
Blues Lion


Lo and behold, here comes another really good guitarist. I need to start practicing more, because these guys are making me feel like, well, you know what happens. Mark plays a Strat, I think, and gets about every note out of it that can be found and then some, plus additional effects. Most of what is on this album is instrumental, but you will not mind, believe me. Mostly in the blues or blues / rock mode, there is no note on where the music was recorded, nor whether there were any sidemen, but Cloutier can fill up all the space on a groove all by himself, no sweat.


Note::: i had various backings for this cd--i played bass on many tracks with some lawrence fritts rythmn section from iowa university college backing..
