The Blues Undergound

at The Wine Cellar, St. Kevins Arcade, 183 Karangahape Road, Newton
The Blues Underground is excited to present this music which is raw and immediate and goes all the way back to the roots.

And because of those deep roots, its primal link to popular rock and roll is also obvious, people (thinking they are) hearing it for the first time are able to make the connection between bands they have grown up hearing and those presented by The Blues Underground.

The Flaming Mudcats are the real deal.

A rip snortin', fire breathin' outfit that puts heart and soul into every note they play.
Often gritty, sometimes raw, they hold nothing back and play the blues like they had no choice in the matter.

Tinged with hints of Little Walter, George 'Harmonica' Smith, Magic Sam and Jimmie Vaughan, the ensemble lays down deep grooves marked by solos with an innate swing that is always impressive.

The Mudcats ooze personality, and pull of the tricky task of playing tribute to their heroes without slavishly ripping them off.

This is a band that will appeal to youngsters as well as die-hard blues fans.
