Päivän arvio tulee Saksasta, Wasser-Prawda sivusto kirjoittaa: "...Bändi on vuosien saatossa luonut oman, muista selkeästi erottuvan tyylin jossa yhdistyy blues, rock ja latinalaisrytmit. Välillä kuuluu New Orleans vaikutteet josta yhtye matkaa sujuvasti Texsasin ja Meksikon rajamaille...Yhtyeen musiikillinen entusiasmi välittyy selkeästi myös konserttiyleisölle...vahva suositus..."
Great review by German based webzine Wasser-Prawda. We say thanks and oh yeah, keep em coming:-) "Over the years, Micke Bjorkof and his colleagues have developed a style and sound that sets them apart from most of the currently active blues rockers: here, blues and rock sometimes meet Latin American rhythms or even jazzy influences. Sometimes you hear the influence of New Orleans, sometimes you feel transported to the border between Texas and Mexico. Again and again the rock groove is loosened up by the percussions. Lefty Leppänen's slide guitar and Bjorklof's harp bring the blues back to Chicago or the swamps of Louisiana on all trips.
Above all, the appearance in Eutin contains mainly original songs. There are hits like "Last Train To Memphis", "After the Flood" and a few pieces by other artists, such as the "5-10-15 Hours" known by Ruth Brown or Albert Collins' "Honey Hush". With bands original number "Ramblified” they also honored the great late delta blues legend Son House.
The enthusiasm of the band was transmitted directly to the audience in Eutin. Twentyfive Live is one of the live albums that you can fully recommend to any blues and blues rock fan."😀 ... See MoreSee Less
Check this out, Sonny Landreths post from Finland!Sonny had an amazing time in Finland this weekend with John Hiatt and the Goners. He's pictured here playing a wonderful guitar called the Mojo Grande built by legendary Finnish luthier, Juha Ruokangas at the Puistoblues Festival near Helsinki. Big thanks to David Wilson of ToneQuest and Anu Åberg for facilitating!
He also got to hang out with Erja Lyytinen (chosen best blues guitarist for 2017 by www.musicradar.com) and renown Finnish blues artist Micke Bjorklof & BlueStrip. Suffice to say the blues is alive and well in Finland!
