Arroyo were a Milwaukee based six-piece, who operated between 1978 and 1982. They were representatives of their era, with a musical mixture of FM radio rock and some swampy southern rock. The former somewhere between a gritty blend of early Michael Stanley Band, Huey Lewis And The News and the Bob Seger Band; the latter fusing together elements similar to the Allman Brothers and Wet Willie.

The Songs
It might seem like a strange mixture, but it kinda works. 'Gone, Gone, Gone' is an Everly Brothers cover (not Chilliwack lol), while the best tracks are the rocking pairing of 'Stronger Than Before' and 'Caroline', which veers more to the style we appreciate here at GDM. One Man, One Woman', 'Can't Shake The Feeling' and 'Little Miss Twister' are fun time excusions, though that harmonica gets too much attention for my liking.

In Summary
Guitarist Jason Klagstad has put some live material of Arroyo up on You Tube. It's a good half hour of material, so you can get a good handle on what these guys sounded like. Also, if you are a Spotify member, you can listen to Arroyo on that streaming service. There is a compilation album '1978-1982 posted up there. Check them out if late 70's radio rock is your game.
