Playing a diverse, dynamic live set illustrating all shades of Blues and allowing each others instrumental, vocal and improvisational qualities to shine. Each performance is rock-solid, yet full of inspiration and spontaneity,
preferring old tube amplifiers creating a rich tone that brings the listeners back to the very early days
of the 1950’s Chicago Blues.
Think of Muddy Waters plugging his red Telecaster for the first time into an old tube amplifier and Little Walter blowing his harmonica through an old Fender Champ. The result is a magical performance that stands out for its intensity and energy.
