NEW in roster: New Celeste

Initially formed in the late 1970’s, combining folk, rock and jazz players from the Glasgow music scene, New Celeste created controversy at that time with their rock and jazz treatments of traditional music and their fast and furious stage act.

New Celeste just released a brand new CD through Park Records called ‘A Perfect Sky’. This CD breaks all the rules about what a celtic/rock band should be and features the hit single ‘Such a Lovely Day’.

He is a guitar-driven electric blues-based stylist onstage, but in the studio Tommy composes a variety of music. So while well experienced and studied in traditional blues, jazz and rock styles, Tommy is an artist who puts that soulful blues feeling into all the different styles he plays. He’s been been recognized with numerous awards over the years, including being voted Top Blues Vocalist in Western New York 2003/2004/2006, Top Blues Guitarist 1993, 1994, 1995, 1997, 2004, 2005, 2006 and his band has won the Top Blues/Crossover Blues Band categories 1994, 2005, 2006, and was honored with the Muddy Waters Award for “Artist of the Year” by the Blues Society of WNY in 2004.

King, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Jeff Healey, Colin James, Roomful of Blues, Blues Traveler, Derek Trucks, Joe Bonamassa, Robert Randolph, Peter Frampton, Carey Bell and many more including a tour backing up Grammy-winning blues legend Pinetop Perkins (Muddy Waters Band).

NEW: HARPER AND MIDWEST KIND

Award-winning Australian singer/songwriter Peter D. Harper — known in the music world simply as “Harper” — creates a heady mix of roots music through his creative use of the harmonica and the haunting drone of the didgeridoo. Harper possesses a strong, resonant voice and a deep, almost mystical approach to music that some might say has evolved into its own genre. By combining traditional and modern influences, borrowing from Western and World music, Harper has created a highly original take on the roots genre which many have labeled “World Blues”. A rich musical stew of ‘50s rhythm and blues, a ‘60s message of love and unity, and ‘70s funky soul, stirred up with masterful harmonica and the deep, woody, percussive tones of the didgeridoo, served up in a feast of timeless mystery. His innovative use of electronic enhancement and feedback, breaks the traditional boundaries of the harmonica, giving his music its distinctive harmonics and effects. The powerful guitar sounds and the unique drone of the didgeridoo create raw yet eerie sonic textures, some how sounding primal and contemporary at the same time. The new album “Show Your Love” is #6 in Billboard Blues Chart. Track ‘Hell Yeah’ is charted in Hit-Tracks Top 100. More info on BAND-PAGE.1507848_10153758595862949_2707890293402135773_n

They would certainly recognize aspects of their own music, but they would not be able to keep their butts on the bench.” (Guitar Nine News)
