FIVE STAR REVIEW in OC EXAMINER, May 15, 2016
"There are a lot of things to love about the blues. One of the things is that the blues can get you moving. And Blind Lemon Peel Blues Allstars will definitely get you moving with their own original great blues (stylings). It will start in your hips when you hear their rhythm, and you'll get moving even more when you hear the boogie-woogie piano part. In fact, their piano solos might get you playing your imaginary keys. There is an old-time feel throughout their (show), particularly in the vocals. This is shoutin' the blues at its finest. Blind Lemon Peel frequently sings in a low growl reminiscent of Howlin' Wolf and Tom Waits, but all his own. This band doesn't mince any words.If you're a fan of the blues, don't miss them."
INDY PULSE MUSIC, June 10, 2016
"The Blind Lemon Peel All-Stars is a upbeat, low down, dirty blues band with a healthy sense of humor guaranteed to please. They play the kind of blues that makes you want to dance and sing along, the irreverent, steady true Rhythms, and solid timing make it a blast to be part of."
NASHVILLE BLUES SOCIETY July 3, 2016
"Blind Lemon Peel is a completely unique blues amalgam. Add in some funk from James Brown and Johnny Guitar Watson, some country-fied blues from Elvin Bishop, the humor and vocal delivery of Rick Estrin, and, shall we say, the irreverence of Wynonie Harris, and you'll get a fairly good idea of what's going on. One thing is for sure—it's a stone party from the git-go! You can't deny the danceable grooves with a cool “Saturday Night Fish Fry” stamp on 'em. Blind Lemon Peel keeps things fun, funky, and real. Infectious grooves, good slow-bluesers and a party attitude make this band not to be missed!"
The BLP All-Stars are a show are a show band. High energy, high octane professional entertainers who've played all over the world. From Ronnie Scott's in London to BB King's Times Square in NY, the Manhattan Beach Blues Festival, Long Beach Blues Festival, the Orange County Blues Festival in southern California, this is the band that bookers call "SUPER STARS!. The perfect blues entertainment whenever you want to WOW it!"

“Working with (Blind Lemon Peel) is like a shot of adrenaline. I have never met anyone like him before. I only knew that people like him existed, otherwise there would not be enough cool things in the world.”
