Matt Hill and The Deep Fryed 2 - Time Out Pub, Rockland, Maine 2012-04-09

It's really great to see bands return to the Time Out Pub.  Those that have been coming for many years are welcomed like family.  It's also nice to have newcomers, especially ones that bring as much style and energy as Matt Hill and The Deep Fryed 2 (Paul Niehaus IV - bass, Joe Meyer - drums)!
(Paul & Joe appeared at the Time Out with Rockin' Jake a while back, so they're not complete newcomers...)

Their album Tappin' That Thang  will be out soon.  It's a foot stompin', rockin' mix of blues, rockabilly and old school attitude.  He can't win the Blues Music Award for Best New Artist (he won in 2011) again, but I'm betting he'll rack up a few more awards down the road.

Check out this write-up on the photo shoot for the new album:
