Debut album by Red Beans & Rice Combo
Pittsburgh’s rockin' rhythm & jazz trio, The Red Beans & Rice Combo, will serve up a delightful musical gumbo with their debut recording, Let the Joy Begin!
The Combo features Tom Roberts on piano, whistling, & vocals, along with Dave Klug on drums and his custom-built "Kluger Soundboard," and Wayno on vocals, harmonica, & ukulele.
The fun-loving, sharp-dressed trio has been gigging around Pittsburgh since 2016, and quickly developed a reputation for delivering a danceable mix of New Orleans R&B, early rock & roll nuggets, and barroom ballads, with a jazzy dash of Tin Pan Alley, and a generous side of wit & humor. Let the Joy Begin! features ten of the Combo's favorite tunes.
The album was produced by Xayne Berlinski at Mojo Bone Yard Studios in McKeesport, PA.
Man alive! These guys make you wanna jump and jive! Pittsburgh rhythm & blues and jazz at its coolest!
