"If I could use only one word to describe Mikey Capone as a guitar player it would be WOW! That guy plays the F%$^ out of that guitar. Like a lightning bolt struck him. Not only was his guitar plugged in but he was plugged in. My jaw dropped watching Mikey play and he is about as tasty as you can get."- Steve Rosenberg
“The Capone Mob’s Devil Have The Blues really delivers. Without question, one of the most important debut blues releases of this decade”. - Clayton Hamel, Backroads Blues

"Hi folks, it's Mikey. Devil Have The Blues is my first BIG, Blues studio album undertaking and so far, all without the help from a major label. I've spent nearly five years writing the songs for this record and I put together a great group of musicians comprised of Paul Curley on Bass, and Mike Turner (Courtesy of the Dennis Jones Band) on Drums, plus special guest Grammy award recipient Olivier Scoazec on Guitar and Leon Blue on Keyboards".-Mikey Capone
