I have previewed literally thousands of CDs during my almost 2 decades at WMHB. I can tell by the first few verses of a song that I'm going to be spinning that song on my radio show. But there are times when I keep the CD in the player for every verse of every song on the entire CD because the music is so great and so captivating that I can't stop listening!! What a great feeling and that is exactly what happened with the SHARI PUORTO BAND's new CD, LIVE AT BOGIE'S! SHARI's vocals rock and the band just rocks and cooks song after song after song! Highest rating for LIVE AT BOGIE'S!! - Patrick Turlo DJ, WMHB 89.7FM
“Shari’s a road warrior touring non-stop across the USA and now, after some fine studio releases, those of us unlucky enough not to see her perform live can get a taste of the Shari Puorto live experience in full flight on a fantastic live album. Ms Puorto is a fabulous singer, right up there with Bonnie Bramlett in my pantheon of soulful blues singers and backed by a great band this record shows just how good she is. The 12 tracks on "Live at Bogies" are a testament to her blues journey so far with stand out numbers like 'Six Months Sober' and 'All I Want Is You' making you instantly reach for the repeat button. Fans will love it, newbies need to hear it. Blues like it should be."
