The House is HAUNTED – A Spooky Halloween Single from Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellas
“THE HOUSE IS HAUNTED” is a swingin’, bluesy, rockin’ Halloween frolic by Chicago crossover maven SUSIE BLUE and her Lonesome Fellas.
The tune was originally penned in the 1940’s, of course, which makes it swing… it was also written by the Velvet Fog himself, Mel Torme. But Susie and the band rock out A LOT on this tune, bringing it to life for the crossover trend that is so popular in 2022.
“The Lonesome Fellas can rock, roll and swing… Susie Blue’s ferocious delivery provides a welcome compliment to the twisted rhythm guitar and in-the-pocket rhythm section. Saxophonist Eric Schneider rises to Blue’s challenge by matching the integrity of his solo to that of her vocals. Fun, convincing and powerful, Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellas make Halloween…” – Preston Frazier, Something Else Reviews
Susie and the band are feisty on this tune, with saxophonist Eric Schneider mixing in a riff from the Screamin’ Jay “I Put a Spell on You” intro, Neal Alger tearing it apart on guitar and Susie howling like a jazzy Grace Slick. It’s rockin’, it’s swingin’, it’s a little punk-gothin’. It’s everything 2022 and SPOOKALICIOUS too.
