FIFTY SHADES OF BLUE IS NOMINATED FOR "ALBUM OF THE YEAR", "TRADITIONAL ALBUM OF THE YEAR" & SONG OF THE YEAR FOR THE TITLE TRACK "FIFTY SHADES OF BLUE."

"In light of its recent pop culture popularity, you have to wonder why it took so long for one of our creative blues songwriters to pen a tune called “Fifty Shades Of Blue”? Thanks to Boston- based piano ace Anthony Geraci that neglected topic has now been covered. The T-Bone Walker- styled romp features Boston’s “Evil Gal” Michelle Wilson and Sugar Ray Norcia tradin’ bedroom teases about blindfolds and handcuffs while Mike Welch’s guitar and Geraci’s piano add unrestrained musical punches.
Along with Ron Levy, David Maxwell, Al Copley, and Bruce Katz, Geraci is one of the fine keyboard players who thrived in the New England blues scene back in the 1970s. In fact, Geraci was the first to play keys with Ronnie Earl’s Broadcasters and Sugar Ray Norcia’s Bluetones. Today he still mans the 88s with the Bluetones as they tour the world, and he also handles solo gigs throughout New England." ~Art Tipaldi
