We like to tell your about our new CD. S.D.C.B. "Live In Germany" Released in April of 2011. This is where the band shines. LIVE. Recorded on his tour in 10 the Euro version of S.D.C.B. Thomas Lipps Bass, Uwe Herr guitar, and Pete Perfito on drums, knew it was time to put this band on disc.

Sweet Daddy Cool Breeze, “Live in Germany” – Wally Greaney has been touring Germany with Sweet Daddy Cool Breeze for almost 20 years now. With a rabid and growing fan base overseas, Greaney decided to put the live experience literally and figuratively “on the record.” Recorded live at Wodan Hall in Freiburg, the CD showcases SDCB’s electric blues output. Greaney is a harp master and he is joined here by Thomas Lipps (bass), Peter Perfido (drums), and guitarist Uwe Herr.
The #1 German Blues magazine "Bluesnews" had said this about the CD
Why this band is not in the line up of more European festivals is one of the big mysteries only the music business can answer. Who wants to prove if the words I say here are right, just hear the new CD of this German-American 4 man band ! "
Blues Revue 2012
Sweet Daddy Cool Breeze hits a career peak
on the tough Live In Germany. On this largely
uptempo set, Wally “Sweet Daddy” Greaney is
singing better than ever; the lone slow number,
Casey Bill Weldon’s blues ballad “Outskirts Of
Town,” reveals no vocal deficiencies beyond a
questionable instinct to leap at random into
falsetto. His harmonica breaks are generally strong
in tone and dramatic construction. The band –
Thomas Lipps (bass), Peter Perfido (drums), and
Uwe Herr (guitar) – is rock-solid, playing with a
clear awareness of dynamics and taste. Herr
deserves special mention for his fine, clean Fender
tones, crafty note choice, fresh phrasing, and,
especially, for his solo choruses in “Driving
Wheel,” played via tuning peg manipulation.
The CD is available @ CD Baby.com /sweetdaddycoolbreeze. You'll like it!
We had a great time this spring and summer. Our gig's are coming to an end for our season.
We'll be doing a few shows in the fall and hope to be doing more next spring and summer.
The DVD From Sweet Daddy Cool Breeze.
Because the band won’t be touring any time soon in the states they released a DVD
This 13 song one hour + show was recorded for the Don Odell’s Blues Time TV show.
This is a great way for the band to introduce themselves to a bigger blues audience . The DVD will be a great addition to any blues fans collection.
It was indeed a pleasure to find out that Sweet Daddy made it onto the latest DVD of John Kay & Steppenwolf. The DVD is the story of Steppenwolf and John’s life. If your a fan of Steppenwolf then you’ll enjoy this Disc.
That's it for now. If you came to a show please come up and say hello.
