Notes:On Friday, November 11th Bravo Max will be at Maxine’s in Hot Springs, AR for their upcoming Bullfighter Blues Tour
A 15-track sophomore album, Bull Fighter Blues, will be released November 4th, 2016 on St. Cait Records.
The new work is a decisive shift in direction for Bravo Max and it is the culmination of three years of truly collaborative writing. Since slimming down to a trio from the previous release’s line up as a sextet, the band has also taken on a vastly different sound, going from raucous Americana to progressive rock and roll. In addition to top shelf musicianship by the backbone trio, guest performances, including baritone sax, steel guitar, Hammond B3 organ, trumpet, flute, and trombone, help to solidify the rowdy and emphatic style of the November release. Bullfighter Blues is a gritty and triumphant trip; it is a dreamy flash of instrumental psychedelia mixed with easily accessible rock and roll.
