I believe if we still had Bill Allen, “The Ol’ JIvin’ Hossman,” blastin’ the blues across the South on 50,000 watt WLAC, he would intro-ing and tagging’ any cut on In The Boys Club with “That’s Kat Riggins. She’s Got Blues You Can Use”

If you could drop a needle onto this CD (you will actually hear one, cooly mixed in with a National guitar on the traditional “Troubles Away’), you’ll hear a nice stew of all kinds of good stuff that draws from every place R&B ever sprang from. All unified and testified, by the fact that Kat wrote ’em all and wrote ’em to the wall, with lyrics like “ If the dog don’t bite, the kitty won’t scratch” or “Sometimes I know, I don’t behave like I oughta/Ol’ Johnnie Walker’s a real smooth talker.”

“Tightrope” or “Second To None” could be mixed into a stack of Stax 45s and you’ll be back in Memphis, horns and all. “Fistful O’ Water,” if it doesn’t get in your gas tank, will drive you to Motown ’round ’69. “Hear Me” gives testimony that your sorry do-wrong ass is on very thin ice. This Kat is definitely “A Girl In The Boys Club” where she is the new sergeant at arms with a band and 13 songs to kick you out the back door before you can ask “What I Say?” ­—Ken Spooner, elmoremagazine.com

Kat Riggins, the ‘bluesy songstress with a rockstar flair and a hip hop heartbeat’, and the Blues Revival Band will definitely be shaking things up again as she returns to the island after her first successful performance in Pietermaai District as part of the Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival 2014 pre-program. Riggins’ purpose is “reviving the Blues one song at a time” and and that is exactly what she does in her own musical style: a blend of blues with hip hop, pop, rock, and country music. In 2011, Riggins recorded her first EP Seoul Music, a compilation of blues covers, during her tour through Asia and the Middle East. Her debut blues-fusion album Lily Rose was released in 2014. --- curacaoblueseasfestival.com

What’s the best way to start a good, ol’ fashioned blues revival? Well, for starters, your singer has to have a big, bold voice that grabs you at note one. Then, you need a killer backing band that knows blues, funk, R & B, and gospel from the inside out, and can make everything contemporary-sounding for today’s audiences. That brings us to Kat Riggins, possessor of such a power-house voice. Old-schoolers like us heard the Etta and Tina influences, and the young-uns will be reminded of Shemekia Copeland or Demetria Taylor. Backing Kat is a very tight unit, featuring Darrell Raines doublin’ down on guitars and keys, Geogre Caldwell on bass, Doc Allison on drums, and Stephen Lombardelli on sax. They’ve combined their talents to release “Blues Revival,” eight originals and two covers that shows Kat’s passion to win over new converts to the blues, one song at a time!

That voice hits you hard on the leadoff “Now I See (Ooh Wee),” a soul-blues shouter that has Kat giving a lover the boot after she finds out he was nothin’ but a player. “Wail Away” is a sultry, sexy, just-a-little-bit-naughty bump-and-grind slow blues that details the guitar’s place in the blues, while in “Queen Bee,” Kat assumes her throne with her “golden nectar,” but she’s “got a mean sting–cross me and you won’t do it again!”

Kat’s got some serious gospel influences, too. Given the sad state of the world in which we live, Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come” rings as true and as powerful as it did in the Sixties. And, the set closes on a pounding, Sunday-morning, shoutin’ note, touting the fact that the blues are back in style—“The Blues Is The New Black!”

We had two favorites, too–one cover and one original. Kat channels her inner Etta for a mighty funky, chicken-scratch guitar-driven, call-and-response tale of hard times, “The Blues Is My Business, and business is good!” And, “Good Girl Blues” is a contemporary story of a young woman who was always rather straight-laced, but “tonight I’m gonna let my hair down, and party on these down-home blues!”

Kat Riggins wants everyone to feel what she feels whenever she sings the blues. With talent such as hers, that’s an easy task, and she’s sho’ nuff headin’ up a “Blues Revival!” Until next time…Sheryl and Don Crow. --- donandsherylsbluesblog.wordpress.com
