Here’s what Wayne said of this album release show: “I get a lot of CDs in the mail. Some are pretty good. Some are just plain terrible. This new disc from the Jon Strahl Band is pretty damn terrific. Naptown has a blues tradition going back almost 100 years. This disc really does the city proud. Jon has given the blues a nice rock veneer. He seems like he started out as a Led Zeppelin fan and then discovered the blues by studying Jimmy Page’s influences. And that’s not a bad thing. No matter the path he took to arrive in “blues land,” I’m just giddy that he got here. Jon Strahl has put out the best local blues release in a long time. You need this. Trust me.” The Ladder is currently streaming here, and will be available at the show and via various internet outlets on Nov. 8.
