Heavily influenced by such artists as Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top, Townes Van Zandt, and The Rolling Stones, The BuzzHounds meld alternative vocal stylings with Delta Blues and 70’s Outlaw Country to form their own brand of Americana and Rock n Roll.
The Buzzhounds have shared the stage with Les Paul, Buddy Guy, Chicago Blues Reunion, Susan Tedeschi, Magic Slim, Gov’t Mule, and many more. They have also performed on national TV + radio. Members of the band are Jeff Manga (Vocals, Guitars), Bob Miller (Bass), Marko Lira (Drums) and Jon Affinito (Guitar).
Not My Circus, the band of our Artist of the Week David Ernsberger, makes alt-pop songs with folk-tinged vocal harmonies skipping over a freak show of psych-blues riffs, soulful bass grooves, wonky funk beats and warm electronic textures. A white-knuckle ride to the edge of your musical map, and back again.
Besides David, members of the band are Jake Alexander, Sally Fazakerley, Ben Gibson and Benja Bravo. Although they are based in Madrid, Spain, they origin from four different continents.
Two years ago, Switzerland’s “first and last punk” Rudolph Dietrich released a 60 minutes movie, putting together 19 of his songs of the past decade to a unique mix of political and social discourse, blended with his blues-inspired rock music.
This week’s featured artist (#22) is Birmingham/UK based The Grey Goose Blues Band. They have been beavering away on the blues scene for over 8 years now, playing at venues and festivals up and down the country.
