Greyhound Soul

Tucson's Greyhound Soul has the right to bitch and moan that it's being passed over. Signed to a small European label, 808 Records, the band has been grinding out bluesy rock 'n' roll for years now. Its alternating six-member lineup fills most local stages as its big sound saturates the remainder of the club. At first glance, Soul's densely populated stage presence might turn potential blues hounds away, concerned that they've stumbled onto a jam band complete with twirling muumuus and patchouli stink, but they'd be wrong. Front man Joe Peña has a voice so gravelly, it'll check your car's suspension as you listen and drive, and the band is all about whiskey-soaked, low-down-and-dirty rock 'n' roll.
