A Flag Waving Foot Tapping Tribute!
This CD opens strongly with a pulsating country beat coming from the drummer and bass player that sets up a musical foundation that is layered by powerful electric, acoustic and steel guitar rifts. â€œRed, White & You!" is a CD that has high energy, style and lots of class; but more importantly, it will capture the heart of any patriot, who is not ashamed to wave a flag and bleed red, white and blue in support our troops; it will entertain, as well as inspire you.
Doug Brzak has written the words and music for this 5 set CD. His lyrics could proudly stand alone as great emotional poetry but when combined with the musical score they become so much greater. It cuts to the heart and the soul. It is a real tribute to our troops and the those who have served.
The singers add the final touch; both Michael Barrineau and Rachel Williams are the frosting on the musical cake! Michael's voice is as good as it comes, but when Rachel adds her voice to the song â€œThis Mamaâ€™s Sonâ€ it sends shivers up your spine and wetness to your eyes!
This is one great music CD. It would make a great gift for anyone who has a family member in the service. It is a honorable tribute that is also a pleasure to listen to. It is a CD that bears listening to dozens of times. It is that good! I loved it and personally recommend it to others! This is a FIVE STAR CD!”
