A Blues Extravaganza

Yes, you are right, we have had both these popular performers, The Spikedrivers and Guy Tortora, at Peak Concerts before and now we offer both of these amazing artists on stage together for a fantastic evening’s entertainment.

The Spikedrivers lead, Ben Tyzack has been described as”A hard picking,sinuous baritone guitar with growling vocals”. He may have been born in London but having been raised in the deep south of the United States it is clear where his musical influences come from, he is raw delta blues clear and simple.  Constance Redgrave plays bass guitar and percussion, with her native american roots she translates her tribal rhythms into the simple, rock solid bass lines that are her trademark together with her compelling vocals. Maurice McElroy adds to the line up with drums, vocals and percussion.

Yet another American, Guy Tortora was born and raised in Pasadena, California, and “Americana” is his style; that incomparable mix of blues, jazz, folk and roots. Guy is a finger style, bottleneck and slide guitar player of amazing accomplishment

Having the Spikedrivers and Guy Tortora together is a treat not to be missed.
