chuck lambert

may 3rd, 2017 - 10:00PM

Chuck Lambert, a blues veteran of over 40 years, along with his band, are a spirited, driving force within the blues community. They combine Chicago and Texas- style blues, Kansas City jump, and a bit of their own personal flavor to deliver a performance of extreme emotional dynamic. The Asbury Park Press refers to Lambert as the type of performer who "specializes in the kind of intensity driving buttkicking electric blues that makes you think of players from an earlier era who helped define the art."

(WFLR-FM) Having toured the US, Canada, and Europe more than a dozen times Radcliff always leaves audiences stunned with "his jaw-dropping skills as a guitarist." (Blues Review)

Claiming the harmonica ads his instrument of choice, Steve Guyger has been studying the blues since his teens. Mastering the intense grittiness of Chicago-style harp playing landed Guyger one of his best gigs in 1980; a call from Jimmy Rogers.

Guyger's performances are enhanced by his fine clear voice and his preservation of the harp tradition with a unique and refreshing twist!
