Hardway Connection Southern Soul Rumpin'

Hardway Connection Southern Soul Rumpin' Snippets
I had overlooked this release which is available from CD Baby. I've enjoyed the group's previous releases Love Feeling, It Must Be Love and Hot Ticket.
I am sure they once had a website - but at present there doesn't appear to be a lot of information out there on the group. I picked this up from the AARP Org. :-
Hardway Connection produces exciting, new variations of "oldies but goodies" melodies sweeping the land. Their smooth, passionate, sound produces an undeniable compulsion to dance. Always developing and expressing new and dynamic ideas, this group has extensive experience which includes opening for Johnny Taylor, Harvey Scales, Toni Terry, Chuck Brown, Sonny Warner, and other major acts. They have performed in such venues as the BB King Club in Memphis, TN, and the Bayou Club in Washington, DC. Hardway Connection is known for its fun, crowd-pleasing presentation of traditional blues music.

The seven-member group hails from the Washington, DC metropolitan area and has been together for more than 20 years.

You can also read an article in Soul Express magazine on the group written by my mate Heikki Suosalo back in 1999.
