The name Stoney Curtis came from the cartoon character of the same name on the Flintstones. The early version of the band played mostly blues covers in the San Fernando Valley and West LA. For a while they had a singer with a big voice but soon cut it back to a "power trio" with Curtis doing the singing. After a couple of demo tapes, made in the garage sort of thing, the band finished its first studio CD. The CD has – Curtis originals including the pounding Last Train to Chicago and Evil Woman. "Eeevel woman, you're messing with my head". The CD also has blues covers Straighten It Out by Latimore, Damn Right I've Got the Blues and the old blues standby favorite Sweet Home Chicago. It was recorded in part at Doghouse Recording Studios in Burbank owned by Alan Mirikatani aka B.B. Chung King. Check it out. You can see the Stoney Curtis Band all around.
