you look at Johnny Rieger, you cannot believe your eyes and
ears. It seems like an illusion to your eyes .This Voice, this intensity
-timbres that crawl under your skin straight to your heart and touch it
deeply. He's fantastic and bursting with energy at one, sad and passionately
in the next moment. For sure there is a matured Bluesman on stage, one that
is just as old as the Whisky he drinks and helped to build that voice.
Listen to that young modern Blues Album and have a nice time.

This German Newcomer Band inspired by classic and modern blues artists found
their own remarkable style: an amazing mix of modern Blues and Rock `n`
Roll, called the "New Generation of blues". The trio consist of the
brilliant guitar of Johnny Rieger that is sometimes frightening in its
intensity and his spine-tingling soulful vocals. Supported by the elegant
and charismatic bass of Matthias Scherer. Their rhythm is completed by
Michael Jochum an amazing expressive drummer. In over 200 concerts in all
over Europe they electrify their audiences and the critics.
(On the evening of the CD-release party the band was assisted by their
producer Timo Gross and Philipp Graf on
Guitar and Jan Becker on Hammond.)
