In 2005, The Blue Notes released their self-titled CD, "The Blue Notes". Their second CD, "Out of the Blue" was released in April of 2007. Both albums contain 12 original tracks.



Some people ask "Why do you call yourselves 'The Blue Notes'?" Well, when Mac played the organ in his church as a young man he tried very hard to stay within the narrow confines of what was acceptable in gospel music. But his creative harmonic sense was too hard to keep on a tight leash and he would occasionally throw in a chord voicing of his own choosing. When this happened, the preacher would glare over at him and whisper, "Mac, quit playing those blue notes!"
In 2002, when Mac, Steve and Chris first got together, they practiced for nearly six months before they ever considered looking for a gig. Practice was so much fun, the subject just never came up!
The first job "The Blue Notes" did was one which Steve, Chris and Rachel had booked earlier with another group, but the bassist in that group had to cancel. Mac was hesitant, but agreed to do the job with them. It was a fantastic night! After that, everybody was hooked and wanted to play together as often as possible.
