As one of the premier bands on the impressive Boston blues scene, Walk That Walk is an east-coast phenomenon, but its midwestern roots run deep. In 2022, their "You Good.?! LP hit #15 on Roots Music Reports U.S. rankings. The group's material and fiery performances are born of the fertile sounds of Detroit and Chicago, where the electric blues was forged in the 1950s. Walk That Walk served as the New England touring band for two Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame inductees - Bo Diddley and Johnnie Johnson, pianist in Chuck Berry's legendary combo. They have also backed Carey Bell - Chicago blues-harmonica ace. They honed their unique, toe-tapping sound by performing at 800+ shows - and earning extensive airplay on 500+ radio stations with their debut self-titled release, and subsequent studio recordings. They have been a mainstay act in the renowned Boston Blues Festival for many years, performing alongside greats including Levon Helm, Gatemouth Brown, Eric Burdon, Son Seals, and Big Jack Johnson. Their work includes long-running engagements at the major New England rooms including the original House of Blues, the renowned Harper's Ferry, and Johnny D's Uptown Lounge. As front-man Poppa C notes, "if you're not passionate and high energy when you perform, people will head for the exits." These days, the only reason people are near the exits at Walk That Walk shows is because there's nowhere else to stand.
