Junior Watson Band

Montag, 10.04.2017 (20:30 - 23:45) @ Reigen Live

With nearly thirty years of experience, Junior Watson has reached cult status. Junior has done what all great artists have done: melting diverse styles to create a style all his own. With influences as diverse as Tiny Grimes, Oscar Moore, Bill Jennings, Rene Hall, Robert Jr. Lockwood, Jimmy Rogers, Eddie Taylor, Guitar Slim, Earl Hooker and others he has truly created one of the most unique and original guitar voices to come along in years. Besides his mastery of blues and swing he often adds his own cartoon-like twist to everything he plays. You'll never know what he will do and when asked he doesn't know himself. His energy and playing gives you a feeling of reckless abandonment. As he was once quoted "like a train off the tracks".
Watson ist ein Westküstenblues Gitarrist. Er war ein Gründungsmitglied der Bluesband "The Mighty Flyer"s und begann Anfang der 1980er Jahre mit der Band für ein Jahrzehnt. Er spielte auch mit Canned Heat in den 1990er Jahren. Watson hat als Backing- Musiker in Konzerten und Aufnahmen für eine Reihe von Bluesmusikern gespielt, darunter auch Big Mama Thornton , George Smith , Jimmy Rogers , Luther Tucker , Charlie Musselwhite , John Németh , Michael "Pink" Arguello und Kim Wilson .

Liebe Bluesfreunde! Die Özdemirs entfallen leider, das Konzert beginnt gleich mit Junior Watson!
