Tom Bukovac on tour with Trigger Hippy supporting their new debut release

Guitarist Tom Bukovac digs his Bogner amps. And for many years, plus many hit records, they’ve been part of his sonic arsenal. Here’s what he has to say about that:

"Bogner amps sound f**king killer, it's as simple as that. Reinhold always somehow manages to make something unique in a vast sea of imitators. Creative and well built amps that always deliver...sounds good to me"

tom bukovac

Check him out with his new band Trigger Hippy and feel the greasy soulfulness coming out of the jams on their brand new release.

Also, Trigger Hippy hits the west coast for a run of tour dates. Truly one of the BEST bands out there today and featuring a stellar lineup of musicians: guitarist & Nashville session man Tom Bukovac, singer Joan Osborne, Black Crowes bassist Nick Govrik and drummer Steve Gorman, plus singer, guitarist and keyboards Jackie Greene. Discover their music and tour dates at their site here.

Trigger Hippy covers a lot of ground on its self-titled debut album. Cruise through the 11 tracks from this well-credentialed Nashville quintet and you’ll hear propulsive rock, gritty blues, heart-searing soul, sinewy grooves, sublime vocal harmonies and a rich, earthy sensibility steeped in Americana roots. What to call it? Drummer and co-founder Steve Gorman favors “a rock band that can jam.”

These musicians can certainly do that. Gorman, of course, also co-founded The Black Crowes more than 25 years ago; and is considered one of the best rock drummers of his generation, playing not only with the Crowes, but also with Jimmy Page, and Stereophonics, among others. Singer Joan Osborne has released seven albums since her triple-platinum 1995 debut Relish and its Top 5 hit “One of Us;” she’s also collaborated with The Dead, Phil Lesh & Friends, and Motown’s Funk Brothers, with a featured role in the film Standing In The Shadows of Motown. Singer-guitarist-keyboardist Jackie Greene, who performed with The Black Crowes during the band’s 2013 tour, has seven solo albums to his credit and has logged time in Phil Lesh & Friends, among others. Tom Bukovac is a first-call Nashville cat who won five consecutive MusicRow Session Guitarist of the Year awards, while bassist Nick Govrik performed in his former band Highwater and played more recently with singer Mike Farris.

“Sure, you can see this as a ‘player’s band,’ but it really is a band, in the true sense of that word,” explains Gorman. “We don’t see this simply as a project. It’s vital that Trigger Hippy be a real communal effort that feels good to all of us.”

Osborne adds, “Steve is not a person who thinks small. He kind of said, ‘Well, who would I get if I could get everybody I wanted?’ and went for it. We all have very complementary strengths.”

Those strengths are on full display throughout the debut album, Trigger Hippy, released by Rounder Records. The tunes seamlessly blend together the Trigger Hippy members’ individual sounds and both personal and collective influences, stirring clearly defined touchstones into one of those musical stews that’s both timeless and right on time. “Rise Up Singing,” the lead track and first single, kicks things off with the hand-clapping joy of a revival tent meeting, while “Turpentine,” “Tennessee Mud,” “Pocahontas,” and “Nothing New” crank with fiery authority to complement the slinky blues flavor of “Cave Hill Cemetery” and the expansive journey of “Dry County.” “Heartache on the Line” and “Ain’t Persuaded Yet” nod towards the Memphis end of the soul spectrum, while Govrik closes the set with the aching, Band-esque paean “Adelaide.”

Doug Rappoport on tour with Edgar Winter

Guitarist Doug Rappoport will be on tour with Edgar Winter for Rock-n-Blues Fest 2014 which will be a tribute to Johnny Winter. He sent us the picture below of his touring pedalboard that features the Bogner Ecstasy Blue pedal plus a pre-production Wessex overdrive. On the tour Doug will also be playing with Savoy Brown’s Kim Simmonds and Rare Earth. Other artists include Vanilla Fudge and members of The Johnny Winter Band including Rick Derringer for several shows.

As you may have heard Edgar’s brother, guitarist Johnny Winter, passed away July 16th. A true trail-blazer, blues icon and blistering player, Johnny helped blues music and it’s legendary musicians get the recognition they deserved. The world is a richer place for having had Johnny in it and thankfully Edgar is with us to carry forward the Winter’s Brothers legacy. Hail ! Hail ! Rock-n-Roll !!



About Tom Bukovac...

Here’s a classic tale that just so happens to be true….

So there’s this kid growing up on the tough streets of Cleveland in a world most of us will never know. And he escapes into the sonic jet stream of music when he decides to play guitar. Hours turn into years and those years turn him into T-Rex on his instrument. Ferocious and hungry, T-Rex moves to Music City - Nashville TN to become one of the most respected and recorded guitarists in that town's history….

To hear Tom Bukovac play is to hear artful truth. No jive notes and no pretension, just pure “soul power” roaring as a T-Rex should. Listen to Tom Bukovac play. Not because he uses Bogners as part of his arsenal but because his beautiful playing elevates and always serves the song - the song of life around us.

Tom’s been out on the road with Trigger Hippy and here’s a fun shot of him with his Bogner Goldfinger 45 and 2x12 cabinet. Lots to discover of him on You Tube but the video below is a nice start to hear his nuanced touch, time, feel and phrasing.
