Hans Chew was kind enough to play a show for us for the second time in five months, taking the stage at Cameo Gallery as a bit of a sequel to his performance at Cake Shop during CMJ back in October. As with that show, Hans delivered a barn burner of a set, this time in a venue with a loud, upgraded sound system that put extra oomph behind his boogie woogie blues-rock. Along with new numbers like “Strange Love” and Junker’s Blues,” Chew delivered the finest version I’ve heard of one of his 2010 numbers, “Old Monteagle & Muscadine (Tennessee Part One)”, which leads off his Three Lobed Recordings debut Tennessee & Other Stories. It is almost silly that an artist of Hans’ talent level was available to open a gig of this size — he has the style of sound, the chops and the showmanship to dominate far-larger stages. We hope to see the Tennessee native’s next record in print some time this year, but until then, we hope this live set will tide you over. Enjoy!
I recorded this set with Schoeps MK5 microphones and an excellent soundboard feed by Cameo engineer Josh. The sound is outstanding, easily surpassing the Cake Shop recording from last year. Enjoy!
