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.Â I am a big fan of their grooves and their bar-room set list.Â The whole package is strong and, for me, the highlight is the jaw-dropping guitar playing of Kai Strauss.Â 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.Â I paste the whole UK list in here just in case you are reading outside the area.
