Bob Solomon, then owner of Nashville’s Woodland Recording Studios became a fan of the BLUE ZONE. He offered to record the band. New York native Anthony Jackson and contrabass guitar legend flew down to Nashville and played on four of the CD’s tracks. He was a long time friend and recording partner of Lorelei McBroom. Jackson, having great respect for the band Paul Litteral had put together, even offered to move to The Music City to become a permanent band member,            replacing Earl Peaks.

TRY A LITTLE TENDERNESS with The Blue Zone LIVE!

Featuring Earl Peaks on lead vocals with Special Guest Billy Preston on keys

 


Our beloved friend Billy Preston will be sorely missed. He was a phenomenal talent and dear friend of the McBroom family. Lorelei's late Mother 
Dr. Pearl McBroom had been his Doctor, and saved his life as a young teen while he was suffering from a bout with pneumonia. He always treated us with kindness and joy!
The music from the evening Billy Preston sat in with The Blue Zone is posted in honor of his memory.

The politics of Nashville eventually led the band to go their separate ways. After only a brief six-month run in Printers Alley, they did make a lasting impression on the hundreds of regulars who felt the power of Paul Litteral’s vision of the Blues. He now works with the Hidden Beaches act “Unwrapped” as well as many other projects out of Los Angeles. Paul is sucessfully acting as musical director and band leader in various L.A. based live stage productions. Dave Innis has rejoined his platinum selling band “Restless Heart”, and commutes out of Nashville Tenessee.  Paulie Cerra  fronts his own band and tours and records with many others. He and Paul Litteral formed their section THE PACIFIC COAST HORNS. William Ellis and Sam Stafford still reside and play out of Nashville. William records and tours with Keith Anderson.  Anthony Jackson, back in New York City continues to tour the globe. Earl Peaks is believed to be recording out of Florida.  Lorelei McBroom has recently toured backing Rod Stewart and she'll be fronting "The Rockers Collective" formed with Pink's drummer Mark Schulman; along with  co-lead vocalist Jeff Scott Soto and many other seasoned sidemen in this new band venture booked by CAA.
