hb_wombloozo_band_skp_041313-400x267Los Angeles-based old-school roots rockers and award-winning Santa Clarita Valley Blues Society band Wumbloozo (wum-BLOO-zo) brings back-porch acoustic blues to the next all-new edition of SCVTV’s WAVE-nominated “House Blend” show.

Hosted by veteran Santa Clarita music journalist Stephen K. Peeples, the half-hour music-and-interview program premieres Saturday, May 25, at 10 p.m. Pacific Time on SCVTV, seen on Time-Warner Channel 20 in the Santa Clarita Valley and AT&T U-Verse 99 in Los Angeles and Orange counties. “House Blend” also streams live at www.scvtv.com at the same time.

With songwriter Michael Richard on guitar and vocals backed by Rick Cohen on bass and Greg Krueger on lead guitar, Wumbloozo performs unplugged versions of four songs.

Three are deep-blues Richards originals from Wumbloozo’s second album, 2012’s “Confessin’” — “I Lost My Key to the Highway,” “Under the Bridge” and “This Road Doesn’t Go There.”

The show closer, “You’re My Jones,” also penned by Richard, is a love song with a twist from Wumbloozo’s debut album, “Caught in the Act — Live from the Voodoo Cave,” out in 2010. “Caught in the Act” won the SCV Blues Society’s “Best Self-Produced CD” that year.

Between tunes, Richard and Peeples talk about the artist’s background and early notoriety on the New York club scene, and later in Hollywood.
As lead guitarist with Aberdeen & The Gigolos, Richard shared L.A. stages and musical sensibilities with X, The Blasters, Top Jimmy & The Rhythm Pigs  and other local bands blending American roots and blues with a ferocious alt-punk attack.

Richard also reveals what a “Wumbloozo” is and how his current band came to be. He talks about the sessions for both albums, and outlines the stories behind the four songs the group performs on “House Blend.”
