These long time musical friends were reunited in 2013 while performing at the “Bayou’s Last Call” concert celebrating the release of the documentary movie, The Bayou, DC’s Killer Joint. What started as a casual remark, "we should get together, do some shows" turned into BlueHouse Project. Then songwriter Ron Fetner gathered up a bunch of new songs and they all headed into the studio. The outcome was a new band and CD, both called BlueHouse Project. BlueHouse Project’s debut album is a fresh combination of Southern style Memphis blues, modern delta tinged acoustic blues and soul inspired songwriting
“They play with a heartwarming energy that’s as comfortable to bask in as a fire on a chilly Halloween night…musicians provide a Project of soul-food blues rock…The earthy BlueHouse Project will satisfy those who yearn for clear and simple ensemble blues… “Rainey Wetnight-Blues Blast Magizine
“It's an absolutely beautifully done (CD), backed by silk-like rhythm with sultry sax and mesmeric guitar”, “excellent first impression, all outstanding”, - Peter "Blewzzman" Lauro / Blues Editor@ www.Mary4Music.com
“After the first listen to the album, I was pretty well hooked...very comfortable with rocking numbers, quiet sentimental blues, and even a flat-out instrumental... demonstrating that they are at home in just about every sub-genre of the blues”, -John Porter- “Time For The Blues”
