#642 :: LIVE Recording Wednesday featuring Darcy Perry Band at Hamilton Gardens

Darcy Perry and his renowned blues ensemble present a live concert featuring songs from the Don’t Hold Back and Heavy Rain albums. Straight from the sound desk, this is the real deal. In the words of Simen ‘Bluekeys’ Taylor, “It ain't jazz, and it ain't pretty, but this is singing and playing that will make you feel alive.” 

Hailed as “one of the new breed of blues guitar heroes”, Perry earns his reputation as a charismatic live performer, with the band that went from playing bars to headlining international music festivals; harmonica ace Craig Bracken, Norwegian pianist Simen 'bluekeys' Taylor, bass player Paul Merriott 

A double-disc album recorded by Paul Krippner (PK Sound) on Friday night the 24th of February, at the Hamilton Gardens Summer Arts Festival. With plenty of improvised musical adventures, including some of the group's best known songs, this album captures blistering call and response between musicians who share a deep understanding of the blues. 

For the latter half of the concert they are also joined by the Young Blood Horns; Alistair Porter (trombone) and Andrew Hall (saxophones). Darcy's brother, Regan Perry (guitarist for Cornerstone Roots), also features as a special guest.

Mastered by Jason Backhouse at More Core Audio, Kelston, Auckland, NZ.
