“Michael Juan Nunez is one of those rare talents who gets there with his music without ever having tried to jeopardize the process by forcing it or doing anything against the natural flow of things. He’s just that good.”
Michael Juan Nunez And The American Electric
Michael Juan Nunez and The American Electric....what can be said about this band?
Ladies and Gentlemen this is a rock band from deep south Louisiana.
It would be easy to just say that, put it in a nice neat package and be done...but let's consider that each of these guys came up on the music scene as sidemen for a combined list that includes Harry Hypolite, Henry Gray, Sherman Robertson, Lil Buck Senegal, Zachary Richard, Roddie Romero and The Hub City Allstars, Gatemouth Brown, John Mooney, Ms. Carroll Fran, D.L. Menard, Chubby Carrier, Lee Allen Zeno, Dege Legg and The Brethren, C.C. Adcock, David Egan...we could continue but you get the idea.
This is a rock band who's roots run DEEP.
The guys play with conviction that only comes from many, many, many nights throwing down from roadside dives, to the biggest festival stages in the world.
Self proclaimed innovators of a style they have dubbed 'Marsh Rock'...you can hear elements of Zydeco, Cajun, The British Invasion, New Orleans R&B and funk, and of course the blues. From the Delta, to the hills of North Mississippi...to the big Texas guitar sound of Austin icons...with names like Stevie, Jimmy, Derek, Denny.
Heavy grooves, and crying, moaning, screaming guitar (not learned from books or videos, but straight from the source...Sonny Landreth, Lil' Buck Senegal, Harry Hypolite.....)
Again is there more that can be said?
Talking about music is like touching about color.
Go see the guys play....that's the best way to understand.
If you don't feel something, you might want to check your pulse...Just saying.
The boys are mean...in such a good way.
