The band has regular gigs in Prague, and plays all around Czech Republic. Rene takes it on the road as well, having played in 15 countries already,
Rene plays straight-ahead, Chicago, West-side and south-side style, blues, in the tradition of the ’50s and ’60s Chicago scene. The band mostly plays Rene’s original music, while paying homage to the greats of Chicago’s “Golden Era of the Blues”, the ’50’s and ’60’s.
Rene’s love for the incredible stars of that era is evident, as they like to romp through material by Otis Rush, Magic Sam, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Earl Hooker and other blues artists of the era.
If you love Blues, especially Chicago Blues, then please have a listen to Rene Trossman. Rene Trossman has definitely got that “Chicago-Sound”!
With Rene Trossman I must admit that I didn't have too many fears, because I know the rascal, a guy who likes provocations and risks. Besides, you didn't have to be a bit of a barge to leave the States to settle in Eastern Europe and do everything to impose your Blues there ... like a love story between characters a little lost.
Since then, not only has the Rene made his hole, but he is doing better, he marks the Blues with his claw, because Rene Trossman does not just play the Blues, he writes it, composes it, shapes it in his own way to offer a precious stone of an intense blue. The proof, he shows it to you once again with this superb title, “Another Shooter”, available for the moment only in digital, but which will appear of course on the next album of Master Trossman.
A fiery, raw, timeless track, which oozes Blues through all its pores. It's deliciously spicy, on a beat that recalls the rich days of the Blues in all its joyful simplicity. A title carried by a musical efficiency that is obvious, with class! A title that stands out as the natural continuation of previous albums, with class and energy. Formidable! Not everyone is Rene Trossman, that would know …"
"When you listen to the title song ("Postmarked Illinois") you imagine yourself in the blues area of Chicago. A nice guitar solo makes this song a highlight."
