Jeremy Porter and the Tucos - Detroit, Michigan
Jeremy Porter and the Tucos Don't Worry, It's Not Contagious music review by Joe Tell.
Don't Worry, It's Not Contagious starts off with Walk Of Shame. Walk Of Shame has an Americana feel and packs a punch with it's twangy rock and roll guitars. The piano track played by Jeremy Porter adds a unique sound to this straight ahead rock and roll song.
Huckleberry has a infectious, urgent rock energy that's hard to ignore. This song shows off the band's alternative rock side with elements of pop punk. Patrick O'Harris provides a sweet sounding bass track offset with some great guitar melodies. This song reminded me of Huckleberry Hound.

The title track, Don't Worry.. kicks off with a cool sounding bass line and neat little bass line takes the song out. A strong vocal delivery tops off this powerful and punky track.
A slammin' drum track provided by Gabriel Doman punctuates Avenues Are For Heroes, an uptempo song about the hard life of the streets.

"...one of America's best examples of pure talent and hard work." - Jersey Beat, November 2017
“…a great job combining roots rock and powerpop…highly recommended.” - PowerPopAHolic, Oct 2015
“…as northern American blues as you can get before Canada. Whiskey-smooth, with the white hot licks of Ted Nugent, the veteran inspiration of Cheap Trick, and the experimentation of Hüsker Dü. They also have grooves, in all the right places.” – Dayton City Paper, Oct 2015
