Dave Ferra AllStars
A first for us as we look forward to welcoming Dave with the full band!
“…bluesman with a positive flair and grasp of the tradition that shines through… ‘Lies & Gin’ is an excellently conceived and delivered album…a guy worth watching.” – Iain Patience, www.bluesmagazine.nl
“an absolute master guitarist and singer…the perfect ‘front man’….Dave is fully aware that people come out not just to listen, but to have a good time. And a good time they had!” – Richard Dunning, The Tuesday Night Music Club.
“..an entertaining acoustic set from Dave Ferra. His accomplished rack harp, fingerpicking and slide interspersed with a gentle, self -depricating commentary worked well in an intimate setting.” – Blues in Britain, Review of The Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival
“Wonderful stuff…Great man, great voice, great everything!” – Doug Welch, BBC Radio Kent
“Acoustic Bluesman par excellence” – Blues Matters
“a wonderful acoustic album….oozing quality and style”– Blues in the South
“great guitar and spot on for style” – Blues in Britain
Jack J Hutchinson & Tom Brundage
“Tough, immediate rockin’ blues (Classic Rock Blues Magazine)
“Everything that is so good about modern blues music” (Blues in Britain magazine)
“Every now and then I hear a song that makes me sit up and listen, and the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. That’s what happened when I heard Jack J Hutchinson’s new single If You Let Me Love You” – Clive Rawlings (IBBA DJ and writer for Blues Matters! Magazine)
“A rip-roaring piece of work led by Hutchinson’s fine guitar work and scorching vocals” (Wasser-Prawda Magazine)
“Hutchinson exists as a simultaneous echo of the past and glimpse into the future. With modern jam band revivals forcefully popping up in both the U.S. and the UK, Hutchinson’s ability to alternate between singer/songwriter and adaptable session player gives him an edge over other artists struggling to latch permanent tags to their work.” (Blues Rock Review)
