"An Artist At Heart"

Chromed Out Motorcycle Magazine asked me if I would write another article for them after Bikes Blues & BBQ and I happily agreed. The problem though was what was I going to write about. As I was lying in bed just a few days before the deadline, I was beginning to think there wasn't going to be an article. I just wasn't coming up with anything. ... I started thinking that night abouat what impressed me most at Bikes Blues & BBQ and that's when it hit me -- the band LaFuSo. ... I know with all the things going on at Bikes Blues & BBQ you might not have expected me to pick a band that plays Latin, Funk and Soul, but for me personally this was the highlight of the rally.

There was one musician that impressed me more than any other and his name was Theo Reynolds. ... If anyone could be said to have funk and soul in their bones it was this guy. Theo is and was probably one of the most talented musicians I had ever had the pleaseure of meeting. ... Like old friends that haven't seen each other in years, when our eyes met I saw that amazing smile come on his face and knew this was one band I didn't want to miss. Theo was ... doing what he was meant to do and it didn't take long until he had the whole crowd up and dancing. - Chromed Out Motorcycle Magazine/Fall 2010


Liz Lottmann, "Memphis Revisited" --



Theo Reynolds (vocals, keys) is one of the Midwest's most talented singer/songwriters and keyboard players. Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, he now lives and performs in the Southwest Missouri and Northwest Arkansas area. He has appeared with numerous groups across the USA including Percy Sledge. He has recorded as a studio musician on both coasts. He was personally trained in music as a child from some of the leading players in the industry such as Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock, (NO JOKE!) The man is an extraordinary talent with a remarkable voice and a passion for entertaining.

Vocalist Liz Lottmann’s high-energy blues and R&B performances have earned her the respect of musicians and audiences alike. She has worked her way though the blues and jazz clubs of the U.S., Europe, Japan, South and Central America and Canada. While touring with her own bands, she also frequently sang with Donn McMinn’s Memphis Blues Revue, whose players included Jeff "Stick" Davis and Billy Earheart of Amazing Rhythm Aces, and Willie Hall of The Blues Brothers. She has shared the stage and jammed with artists such as Taj Mahal, the Nighthawks, ZZ Top, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Dizzy Gillespie, George Benson, and Spyro Gyra. Liz is proud to be born-and-raised in Northeast Arkansas. While still in high school there, she began composing and performing her own special brand of "barbed-wire" folk. She was a solo artist at Memphis coffeehouses and soon attracted the attention of Jud Phillips, who produced an album of her original songs at Sun Studios in midtown Memphis. When Jerry Lee Lewis heard her album, he encouraged her to reach out toward the blues. At that time, Furry Lewis, the legendary "country bluesman," was working the Memphis area, and each time they’d run into each other, Liz pestered him to show her a few licks on guitar. Furry’s brief lessons allowed her to glimpse the backbone of the blues, and she’s never lost sight of it. Her latest CD release can be found at Liz was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010 by the Northwest Arkansas Music Awards organization. She has served on the board of the Ozark Blues Society of Northwest Arkansas since 2003, and was president of that board from 2006-2010.
