After a break of six long years, the SRV Blues Band is back with a maturity, vision and renewed commitment. The first version of the trio formed in the late 90s have rolled for nearly seven years in Quebec. This "reincarnation" of the blues legend that is Stevie Ray Vaughan and his Double Trouble group have been, among other things, on the regular schedule of the Bistrot à JoJo, "temple of blues" in Montreal.
The new version of SRV Band Blues attacks the greatest hits of the 7th most important guitarist of all time (according to Rolling Stone) with as much pleasure as the first. The physical resemblance is fascinating, the voice is assured, strong, fair and intense, guitar playing is masterful, energetic, the band delivery is remarkable.
