Amazing show by Jimmy C last night! Jimmy played some blues classics such as Hoochie Coochie Man, Thrill is gone and many others as long as his own great songs. The show was filled with energy, positive vibes and smiles. Audience was dancing and singing along and didn’t want Jimmy to leave the stage! So he played for almost 3 hours!
Also many thanks to the band and special guest harmonica player Marty Muniz who sounded fantastic together!
Pink Floyd famously opened the Roundhouse venue back in 1966 and yesterday Nick Mason and his supergroup Saucerful of Secrets returned there with an amazing setlist of their early classics. I was absolutely thrilled by the crystal clear sound, fantastic visuals, psychedelic music. It was like a time traveling to 60s.
Will Wilde opened a new season of British Blues Invasion festival with an amazing show in Moscow. The most interesting part is that Will created his own style of playing guitar solos on a harmonica. Some people think that harmonica sounds boring (yeah, I know those people!), go and check Will out, you will definitely change your opinion. His harmonica playing greatly combines blues sound with rock tunes covered by his emotional vocals. Will played along with very talented Russian band Folkline who introduced us some blues and folk classics.
Roger Waters in Moscow yesterday! Definitely one of the best concerts I have ever seen! Everything was amazing, sound, music, setlist which contained Pink Floyd classics and songs from Roger’s new album, show with so many interesting details. Roger almost cried and said in the end of the show after 10 minutes ovation “It’s getting very emotional”. And yes. It was very-very emotional! Of course it’s impossible to hide from politics at Roger’s shows. But he has a right to share his views even if they are controversial sometimes. Overall it was truly unforgettable experience!
Rosco Levee in Moscow! Great show by a very talented British Blues musician who combines blues, country rock, rock’n’roll very successfully. His expressive vocals are covering a wide range of emotions playing his own great songs and songs by Blues Legends such as Robert Johnson or B.B. King.
Tony Remy is an extraordinary guitarist whose playing draws on many different guitar styles. Yesterday Tony showed us his own rhythmically driven approach which is rich with jazz, fusion, funk, blues and even hard rock. His live performance was remarkable with a great amount of energy.
The band sounded incredible, very detailed and clear! Many thanks to Roman and Anton!
Tony has enviable reputation on the international jazz and blues scene having recorded and toured with Freddy Hubbard, Gary Barlow, Simply Red, Annie Lennox and many others.
This spring the entire Moscow is singing! A Cappella International Festival takes place in the city as a part of the Moscow Seasons street events. Solo performers and vocal groups from all over the world are singing at the most unusual concert venues across city.
I especially enjoyed a great show by The Alley Cats, a band from LA, California.
Will Johns came to Moscow as a part of British Blues Invasion festival. It was simply a fantastic show, Will played his own great songs and some blues classics. Will is not only a musician, but also an exciting performer with the unique guitar technique. 2.5 hours of live music but it felt like one minute! The band’s sound was amazing, crystal clear and so detailed!
Leading the Will Johns Band he has performed with many renowned artists such as Joe Strummer, Ronnie Wood, Jack Bruce and Bill Wyman.
