12:01 released their very first recording effort, a cassette called "Veggie Pocket" in June of 1996, which was quite successful, with brisk sales and Boston area radio airplay.
The band released its first CD, entitled " Gig Money "
on August 1, 1998. Which created even more interest by their fans.
The new CD helped them build on the success of their first ten years and has open some new doors. They continue to play the finest blues venues in the Boston area, along with festivals, charity events, private and corporate affairs all over New England. Their music is, and always has been, a rollicking mix of traditional and modern blues styles, up-tempo and danceable, tossed with a hearty heaping of soul.
It's Time Had Come!!!
In late summer of 2002, 12:01 began working on their next CD, which would feature mostly original music by the band. A release date was expected later in 2002.
The long awaited arrival of our new CD "The Doggone Blues"
was finally here!!
The 12:01 Blues Band was very happy to release their latest recording in the fall of 2002. "The Doggone Blues" has been enjoying very strong sales everywhere we play. The word from our fans is "We love it!!"
As promised the new CD is mostly original music with six new songs from the band and two cover songs.
We look forward to lots of airplay from Boston's top radio stations and continued success playing at the areas best Blues venues, festivals, charity events, private and corporate affairs, boat cruises and new doors being opened in the very near future.
12:01 loves to play and it shows!!
