Where There’s Smoke album featuring the album title track “Where There’s Smoke”

Black Cherry Perry’s Mississippi Medicine Show album featuring fan favourite “Choke the Chicken”


For the Studio 64 show Perry enlisted the help of guitarist Quintin RybuckWilly Garcia on drums and the “go to” Calgary bass player Tommy Knowles. The idea was to not just collect a group of fine blues musician together but to “put on a show”.  To that end the evening was a success. The opening song was the appropriately named Mississippi Medicine. Perry dedicated the tune Bar-BQ Bob to a long time friend in Vancouver. Other songs included T-Bone Walker’s Shuffle, an original tune called Big Mama’s Kitchen and a magnificent cover of the classic J.J.Cale’s They Call me the Breeze with a great open guitar riff and a chuga-chuga rhythm and bass line. Rod Wilson’s Blog

The CD opens with the title track Where There`s Smoke , strong text, an ode to his wife / girlfriend and let’s you hear what Black Cherry Perry’s Mississippi Medicine Show is capable of immediately, as shown by the ten songs they present here. They produce a great piece of blues rock with songs like The Mojo Man, with great guitar and bass, just like in the slow blues You’ve Come To The Right Place and Big Momma’s Kitchen. As in all songs, they make it a nice CD. In short, if you take the trouble to listen to this album a few times, you will be treated to a nice album with beautiful blues numbers.

“You know I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since the Black Cherry Perry’s Mississippi Medicine Show graced these pages…Oh how I love that name for a blues band. Excellent. Wow!  So I was in the mood for a blues fix, and decided to see what they had been up to. Lucky me they just had a new video posted.”  Bearly Rambling Blogspot

“Love the name. That’s cracking that is. I mean, if you’re going to be a blues combo, then it doesn’t get much better than Black Cherry Perry’s Mississippi Medicine Show…this is their first album of original material…my favourite, ‘Coupe De Jour’,  a funky instrumental… ‘Good Mornin’ Judge’ is a close second, as it goes all Thorogood on your ass, and those songs show that there is talent here…I’ve seen some video clips, and they certainly seem an entertaining live act,”
