Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellas release their rollicking new Xmas song “Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me”

Looking for some fun Christmas Music?   “Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me” by Susie Blue & the Lonesome Fellas is “Rockabilly spiced with some funky Blues licks”   

The tune was first performed by Elvis Presley, but the Lonesome Fellas re-arm the standard with their unique brand of Chicago moxie.  Bopping on top of a Mambo rhythm set by drummer Phil Gratteau, Chicago sax Maestro Eric Schneider and versatile guitarist Neal Alger play lively solos.   Susie Blue’s alto glides smoothly over the top of this harmonious katzenjammer, and even Santa makes a cameo.  All genres aside, it’s a great holiday brew of fun. – Jean M Reid

Here are some comments from DJ’s so far –

“Such fun!  Rockabilly spiced with some funky Blues licks and a hint of Country.   It should keep everyone toasty on a frosty night.” – Rob Hoff, WQLN Radio

“THIS is the song for Christmas 2019! It’s got Blues, Rockabilly, and Jazz.  I like it, very much so!”  – Brian Clardy WKMS Radio

“Jump Blues with a 50s County flavour” – Fred Smith CHRW Western Radio

“Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellows keep up their habit of genre hopping good times with this fantastically fun take on “Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me” that recalls the Jump Blues sounds of the 40’s so effortlessly that it sounds timeless.   It is a perfect addition to any holiday playlist!”  Paul Abella – Music Director WDCB Radio Chicago

“The new Xmas track from Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellas is destined to be a seasonal Classic. Paying tribute to all the original forms of American Music – Rockabilly, Western Swing, and pure American Blues, “Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me” is my pick for 2018’s seasonal hit of the year!” – Rockin’ Ritchie Ritch – Rollin’ Rhythm Roundup

“Solitaire Miles, better known as Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellas skillfully blends Rockabilly, Country and Swing with her new Christmas song “Santa Bring My Baby Back To Me”, transcending all genres. The song appeals to all ages with its toe tapping infectious beat, and a flare of nostalgia for those that remember the times when Big Bands performed at dance halls across the nation. This is Americana at its musical best!”  – Scott Wikle, My Kind of Country

“People ask what kind of music do I like to play on my show?  I usually tell them GOOD.  Susie Blue and the Lonesome Fellas plays Swing, Blues, Country, etc. –  it’s just another reason why I like the band so much.” – Keith Parnell, Americana 441

“This tune reminds me of the Elvis Sun Music era… with Rock, which was Blues based. That being said, I think it should be enjoyed across ALL genres… especially with that Yakity Sax for the Jazzers.  Nice Holiday Dance Track!”  – Kate Smith
