Ever since their first gig on a cold December night in
2000 at the Elbo Room in Chicago, IL, Voodoo Pilot has
been crankin' out electric roots rock blues with soul,
passion and vengeance. Voodoo Pilot's original tunes
have been released on a 5 song EP in 2001 and 3
self-produced full length CDs: "Sometimes" (2003),
"Turntable Lover" (2004) and "Good Luck Charm" (2007).
93XRT's Richard Milne played a few tunes off our most
recent release on April 15 ("Fortune Teller Blues"),
May 9th and 12th ("Top of the Hill") on his Local
Anesthetic program. Richard Milne said of our new CD:
"...loose and focused...sound spontaneous, not an easy
thing to do."
The band has played gigs all over Chicago, its suburbs
and into southern Wisconsin. Voodoo Pilot has played
in front of jump-blues masters Roomful of Blues,
Texas-blues icons The Fabulous Thunderbirds and
classic rockers Molly Hatchet. In 2006, Voodoo Pilot
opened for Wishbone Ash and the amazing Johhny Winter.
This year, Voodoo Pilot opened for Welsh guitar wizard
Paul 'Tonka' Chapman (ex-UFO guitarist). Voodoo Pilot
has been featured multiple times on Chicago's 93 WXRT
Local Anesthetic with Richard Milne and performed on
Chicago's CAN TV.
The band's original tunes are available via the bands
website, CD Baby and through the bands management
