Joe Mazzari tears between Dylanesque ballads of heartwarming poetry, and rollicking jams of sweat drenched rock and roll. Dixie Deadwood, with arms of steel on percussion rounds out this solid duo to the hilt.”

61 Ghosts hails from New England, fronted by Joe Mazzari (vocals, guitar), who toured and recorded with Johnny Thunders of New York Dolls fame, and rounded out by Dixie Deadwood (drums), formerly playing with blues legend Leo ‘Bud’ Welch. Dixie brings a steady cyclone of power to the striking sound of this powerful duo, blending Mississippi Hill Country Blues and Rock 'n Roll with Mazzari’s memorable voice and searing guitar. Definitely one’s to watch out for!”

The second I heard the guitar on “Black Cadillac,” I knew I was going to be hooked on 61 Ghosts. Killer guitar and tearing vocals by Joe, with solid rocking drums by Dixie Deadwood. Outstanding.”

If I love classic rock, what new music might I enjoy? I often hear lines by people—usually old-timers, that there is no good new music anymore, and that nothing is ever good as the music from the decade from when the person saying it—grew up. In reality, there is ALWAYS great new music from every generation, and every year. You just have to LOOK. Now the term “classic rock” can be fairly widespread, but to me, would be bands including: Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Beatles, The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Rush, The Police, and countless more. With that said, here are just a few new bands worth checking out: I am quite impressed with “61 Ghosts” out of New England, Maine. They range from this driving cut to soulful folk, blues style rock. ”
