Chigger Red

Hard-Driving Southern Rock

In describing the music of Chigger Red, one reviewer stated, "Think Molly Hatchet slammed head-first into Tesla," which in an interesting comparison since Hatchet featured three guitarists and Chigger Red has three band members in total. But the description should give you an idea of the Southern mayhem that guitarist/vocalist Mike Stansberry is capable of inflicting with his six-string. Their CD Hammered offers thirteen blistering blues rock numbers which grab you by the throat in a similar way that Lynyrd Skynyrd would have hit you in the gut. With brother Chris Stansberry on bass and Chilean-born Leo Cuevas on drums, the trio looks to take south-of-the-Mason-Dixon-line hard rock into new directions. You'll hear aggression and power not typically associated with a lot of similarly influenced music in their tunes, as well as an atmosphere of Georgia hell-raisin' and tequila-drinkin' that you might expect. Great stuff. Chigger Red were originally profiled in the October-November, 2001 edition of The Undiscovered.

alb Chigger Red was formed as a Southern boogie powerhouse rock and roll band, which leaves no illusions about who they are or where they come from. It's all right there in the music. Southerners have always been a rebellious hell raisin' bunch and this definitely applies to Chigger Red. The band has been featured on two Rock City Records compilations ("Heavy Millennium", Vols. 1 & 3), and has won several awards, including Best Blues Rock Band for 1998 and 1999 and Outstanding Southern Rock Band for 1999 by Rock City News Magazine. Mike Stansberry won Best Guitar Player in the same magazine for four years straight beginning in 1996, while Chris Stansberry won Best Bass Player in 1999.

The band's goal is to take blues based guitar rock to a higher, more intense level that will assure them the position of flag bearers for a new type of Southern rock in the new millennium. Chigger Red is currently supporting their debut CD by every means available, regional and national touring, public access television, the Internet, and good ol' word of mouth!

Ronald Jean

Evocative, Guitar-Driven World Music

A professional musician out of Arizona, Ronald Jean has recently released his second CD, entitled Blue Serenity - La Serenidad Azul. Filled with Jean's wonderful acoustic guitar work and loaded with guest musicians and soloists such as flautist Dan Pinson, violinist Devon Bridgewater, drummer Dan Tomlinson, marimbist Paul McDermand and pianist Beth Lederman, the album covers world music territory from Brazil ("Rio Day") and Africa ("Zimbabwe (The Calling)") to Latin American ("La Lluvia Vino"). Jean cites his chordal work and his chord melodies as his strong points, however his soloing is also quite impressive over the ten instrumentals. A dynamic and polished production, the CD was co-produced by Jean and Ken Mary and should hold strong appeal for fans of world music and the work of Acoustic Alchemy and Ottmar Liebert. Mix a pitcher of margaritas and prepare for an afternoon in the sun with Blue Serenity - La Serenidad Azul. Highly recommended. Ronald Jean was originally profiled in the December-January, 2001 edition of The Undiscovered.

pic Ronald is a self-taught musician, who has picked up a number of ideas from other players as well as creating ideas from his own musical vocabulary. He currently makes his living as a background guitarist. Ronald has been a local favorite in the Arizona Valley for many years, so he is attempting to expand his audience worldwide through the Internet. Although Ronald's music is inviting upon first listening, it also has an uncanny growth that seems to enchant and pull the audiences in. He has repeatedly been told, "Your music is relaxing and uplifting". Ronald's goal is simply to provide listening enjoyment. His first CD was melody based and was entitled "First Flight".

In the future, Jean would like to study film scoring and find a way to distribute his recordings in other countries. He also plans to continue to write new music.
