Stuey Blue's latest CD, 'New Way Of Living' is making a splash all over the world where it's being played by European Internet radio stations like SmoothVibes (SwissGroove.ch), Radio Gets Wild (radiogetswild.com), and Soul Connexion (soulconnexion.com)(in Switzerland and the U.K.) and U.S. FM stations like WMHB 89.7FM Maine, KMXT 100.1 FM Alaska, WVOF 88.5 FM Ct, WDBX 91.1 FM Illinois, 88.5 FM Florida, and too many U.S. Internet stations to list. When TAXI (World's largest independent A&R department)'s A&R staff heard the CD they had this to say: "You have a natural ability to write some upbeat groovy melodies with rockin solos. Nice imagery and story telling on your lyrics." "I am impressed with the musicianship here" "Funky band, Stuey, live feel is a highlight" "No doubt you feel the blues" "Soulful sax tone. Good blues infused track" Gi Dussalult Co-Host & Co-producer of Radio Show The Upper Room with Joe Kelley WVOF 88.5 FM Ct was one of the first to hear the CD on the web and contacted Stuey to tell him: "I was listening to your music on the net and I really like what you're doing. Continue your great work, your music is very good." Stuey Blue picked up the horn at 10 and by 15 was performing every weekend with his band Sunrise. He graduated from Wesleyan University, Middletown Ct. With a B.A. in music and then immediately went on the road with the Otrabanda Theatrical Revue, which performed shows in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, St Louis, Memphis, and N.Y.C. The revue was featured in an hour long PBS documentary as well as numerous TV spots. After the tour he settled in N.Y.C. becoming a prominent sideman for numerous bands and doing session work on CD's and for TV and film. He formed his own band, the Screamin Honkers, which were quickly hailed the "best bar band in town(N.Y.C)" by the Village Voice. They headlined at major clubs like Studio 54, The Stone Pony, The Lone Star Café, and The 930 club and colleges like StonyBrook, Univ. Of Richmond, and Queens College performing their original compositions. Their video aired nationally on ABC's Hot Tracks, HBO, and CNN. They also appeared in the major motion picture "Ishtar". The band averaged 150 shows a year playing extensively in N.Y.C. and the Northeast states for many years. Their self-released albums sold well. Stuey's exciting live shows, which featured him blowing his sax while dancing through the audience, dropping to his knees on the beat, jumping on tables and bars, playing on his back rocking and kicking his feet while wailing and honking to a jump beat, brought audiences to a frenzy. After many years in N.Y.C. Stuey Blue moved to Ft.
