Gig : Memo Gonzalez and the Bluescasters coming to the Northwest

Posted on: Saturday, Sep 9, 2006

Anyone who knows me well will not be surprised when I say that I think Memo Gonzalez and the Bluescasters are one of the very best bands in Europe.  I am a big fan of their grooves and their bar-room set list.  The whole package is strong and, for me, the highlight is the jaw-dropping guitar playing of Kai Strauss.  Tone, groove and chops.
I am very pleased that Memo and the boys are coming back to the UK; they have two northwest dates plus one slightly over the border in Wales and one slightly over the border in God’s own county.  I paste the whole UK list in here just in case you are reading outside the area.

This, this and this incredible slow blues (the best one) on YouTube and others linking from the band website.
