Blue Stones get Redding for Blue Balls!

Soul Striker Signs for Blue Balls!

The first striker has been scouted and signed with this month’s guest, The Blue Balls, securing the services of Soul legend, Otis Redding.

The first striker for either team, Redding is a towering figure who will clearly demand respect. His ability to calmly slice his way through the defence of the opposition was not lost on his manager.

“Some strikers are all about power. Others like to try a little tenderness – and this is where Otis shines. I have stax of respect for the man.”

The icy cool striker was reticent to leave his home in Georgia – but Redding was quick to sign, stating “there was no point sitting till the evening [of his career] comes.”

The Blue Balls will announce their next signing in February 2016.

 

Dan’s BandCampaign Episode 9 – The Blue Stones

How’s that sound? The Blue Stones – That’s how!

 

Imagine you walk into a bar (in slow motion) dressed in a sharp suit with the swagger only a winner could muster. You order your drink (a stiff drink), a girl flirts with you, you are invited to join the band to belt out a catchy rockin number, you get in a bar fight, the girl breaks your heart and you stagger out, tie slightly loosened but knowing you had one hell of a night. That’s what listening to The Blue Stones is like!

The Canadian duo have been belting out these suit clad, stubble fueled songs for almost a decade now. The crunchy yet soulful guitar and vocals of Tarek Jafar and intricate and powerful drums of Justin Tessier are a combination to be reckoned with. Open your ears and swallow the confident swagger that are The Blue Stones!
