After fronting the Bluerunners for 20 years, Mark Meaux has shed his skin once more, and the result is Sam Rey, an electronic, folk-blues project. Sam Rey draws more on the sounds of New Orleans and North Mississippi resulting in a funky, guitar driven groove exemplified by songs like March On, and Sakes Alive. There's a folk element running through here as well. The Totem 2 are Steve LaCroix and Danny Kimball, the former rhythm section from the Red Beans and Rice Revue.
