The Wildcat O'Halloran Band's Hot Pulldown CD has been in the national blues charts since August!   Will visit Maine an NH in June, then Midwest in July!!
Living Blues Magazine has been the final arbiter of all things Blues pretty much forever.....please allow me to share their insights about Hot Pulldown:

The Wildcat O’Halloran Band have been a Massachusetts institution for over two decades.   The band’s latest release, Hot Pulldown, brims with tight musicianship and raucous energy.  O’Halloran is an agile guitarist, and his backing musicians have the type of musical chemistry that only comes from sharing the stage for years.  The band’s chops are nicely showcased on a pair of instrumentals.  The title track is a high-energy showcase for O’Halloran’s guitar slinging, while Mister Magic serves up a potent blend of blues and funk that shines a spotlight on guest saxophonist Emily Duff.  The rhythm section locks into a spandex-tight groove while O’Halloran and Duff strut their stuff.

     As a songwriter, O’Halloran has a special knack for tongue-in-cheek lyrics and hard-bitten wit.  Shaped Like A Woman is a sardonic look at the ways guitars can be better company than women.  Wally Greaney’s harp blowing adds a healthy dose of Chicago grit.  Buy A Dog reveals that O’Halloran, like many great bluesmen, is not shy about putting those who do him wrong in their place.  O’Halloran knows how to choose his harp players—on this track, Ottomatic Slim plays with a rich tone and lyricism that’s reminiscent of Charlie Musslewhite.   On the slide guitar-driven Separate Words, O’Halloran uses his caustic wit to tackle one of musicians’ favorite gripes—the travails of life on the road.

     O’Halloran fleshes out his originals with a pair of well-chosen covers.   An earnest reading of Jimmy Reed’s Honest I Do reveals the band’s great respect for tradition, while a solo acoustic rendition of Lightnin’ Hopkins’ Prison Blues drips with down-home atmosphere.  O’Halloran is a capable acoustic guitarist.  His playing perfectly captures Hopkins’ terse, behind the beat feel.   The Wildcat O’ Halloran Band has paid their dues as a regional act.  Let’s hope that Hot Pulldown brings them somewell-deserved national recognition.  –Jon Kleinman
