One foot firmly entrenched in ‘50s Chicago blues, and the other planted in the roots stew that is Memphis, Jay Walter and The Rectifiers aim to “set your night right.” Consisting of some of the best roots/blues musicians the Twin Cities has to offer, The Rectifiers never fail to deliver.  


" Jay's voice has the spot on blues attitude to give these tunes authenticity. That carries through to his tough harp skills and his hand picked crop of first rate musicians from the Twin Cities blues scene. If you have a hankering for fresh sounding blues that owes a debt to the masters, you just cant go wrong here."  - Blues Blast Magazine
