July 19, 2013
About the band:
We are like here’s everything we’ve got. And some
stuff we don’t. Lay it down on the line. Hopefully it will touch you in
some way that promotes empathy for your fellow souls. It’s the
futuristic blues or something. It’s an emotional clusterfuck or epiphany
as it were. It is the chaos and rhythm and wonder and ecstasy and the
blues. Better known as rock and roll.
We’ve played hundreds
of shows together over the last several years. The band is made up of
some seriously bad ass musicians. We can do solo acoustic, all the way
up to 10 piece extravaganzas. Mostly we play 5 piece rock and roll.
Dutch Suoninen on electric guitar, Mississippi Steve Tegel on the bass,
Rich "never tardy for the party" Berardi on them drums, Jon “E. B.
Badd” Niemann breaking notes on them keyboards and me on the acoustic
and sometimes electric and breakdancing skills.
"At first blush the music of the Paul Chesne Band sounds like barroom
bluster that goes down like a dollar draft. Stay sober enough to catch
Chesne's wordlplay, though; The stuff on his album "Wet Dog Man" is a
spit take waiting to happen."
Kevin Bronson - Los Angeles Times
Paul’s a singer song writer in the vein of Gram Parsons, Early Wilco
era Jeff Tweedy,&Exile On Main Street era Rolling Stones.
Singin’, dancing’, down on his knees, screamin’ to some empty bottle or
some woman. His backing band is solid, to say the least."
