Music Submission, Two Hats Blues Band

Artist or Band Name: 
Two Hats Blues Band

The concept of the Two Hats Blues Band came to Rambling Rob in a vision.

Lying in that hospital in Rovaniemi, he had seen it all - a blues band like no other; 

combining slide fingerpicking guitar mastery with porch stomping foot 

percussion, wailing blues harp and thumping double bass. 

Three of them, howling in harmony, swirling echoes of country, bluegrass, gospel 

and R & B, creating an evocative vocal sound all of their own. 

Using old, primitive tools from an era before electricity took hold, channeling

everything that came from the blues, back into the blues. 

From the Mississippi to the Irwell, strange currents and tides flow through these 

songs. Feelings of euphoria and desolation, soaking and reviving dusty old ideas, 

making them shimmer in the sunshine stolen from other lands, other times.

Igloo Crew Records Now Available For Streaming
 
Diverse Hip-Hop Group Let’s It All Out
 
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
Miami, Florida - May 7, 2019 - ​ Igloo Crew Records is proud to announce that their diverse discography is all available online now.
 
Igloo Crew Records isn't like the typical hip-hop ensemble. Mo Dog Chill, Myke Smoov, Steve Young, Stephanie  A-1 Scrill, Choppa Capone, Mr. Strategic make up this unique ensemble. Ranging from talented emcees in their 30's to seasoned vets in their 60's, this group has some members who have been writing, recording and performing for almost a quarter of a century at this point in their career. With that much talent under one roof, Igloo Crew Records ranges in not only age but style as well. From hardcore hip-hop to funk to R&B, it's all there with this crew.
 
As a whole, Igloo Crew Records have performed throughout Cleveland, but it's their own Mo Dog Chill that has been recognized on a national level. He made headlines for finding over half a million dollars that fell off an armored truck in 2001 and appeared in Jet, National Enquirer, 48 Hours, Tell The Truth and more. A whirlwind experience for sure, but not as gratifying as what he's done and continues to do with his Igloo Crew.
