Blues Leaf Recording Artists Stringbean & The Stalkers released their second CD Little Monster just in time for the Red Bank Jazz & Blues Festival. It was recorded at Retromedia Studios in Red Bank and features a dozen original tunes and some inspired playing. The Stalkers are the house band at B.B. King's Blues Club in Manhattan and have been performing every Sunday at the Ragin' Cajun in Belmar for five years running in addition to their travel schedule playing Blues Festivals and venues up and down the East Coast.

Stringbean, aka Ken Sorensen, sings, plays harmonica and guitar. He is surrounded by great musicians: Sonny Kenn, lead guitar, is considered by many to be the best guitarist that the Jersey Shore Music scene has ever produced. His stellar playing really shines on their new CD release. The rhythm section is comprised of Dave Meyers on bass and drummer Vic Bayers, a pair with a telepathic bond derived from years of playing together. Neil Thomas is a brilliant piano, organ and accordion player who has played with Stringbean longer than anyone. Together this group of friends has developed into a powerhouse of extraordinary Blues grooves and musical energy guaranteed to make you swing your hips and put a very large smile on your face.
