Review by Wanda Callagy
Road Dogs, indeed. George Kilby, Jr. and his band the Road Dogs have lived up to their name, playing fine, handcrafted Americana songs Manhattan pubs to Denmark bistros.
Guitarist-vocalist Kilby doesn’t like categories when describing his music, though he admits his early influence living, playing and recording with the late Pinetop Perkins in Chicago left an everlasting imprint. “He was the music he played,” Kilby says. “He just played the truth.”
And it’s not surprising that Kilby considers his new album Six Pack to be some of the best music that he’s ever made.
