Their original tunes bring you an island-sound consisting of reggae, calypso, and good old rock ‘n roll.
Carolina Rex is built on a core of Heavy Blues and Guitar Legend Rock. Heavy Blues is aggressive guitar-driven blues and which includes Texas Blues, Chicago Blues, Mississippi Blues, and other blues genres. Guitarists like Gary Moore, Jeff Healey, Joe Bonamassa, Eric Gales, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd can all be considered Heavy Blues guitarists.
