ANDERSEN BAND (DK)
here for the website of the
Powerful, Soulful Rhythm & Blues
order to capture the sound and, not least, the atmosphere of the band`s
wide ranging repertoire on tape, they flew in Steve Savage from California,
an engineer who has been responsible for three of Robert Cray`s classic
recordings and much more, and as Otis Grand writes in the sleeve notes
to the new CD:
Live, Mike Andersen Band is a classic 6-piece band with 2 horns. This versatile line-up is perfect to showcase the band`s style which is a mix of classic 1950`s Rhythm & Blues, raw urban blues from the 60`s and contemporary R&B, both originals and new arrangements of great R&B and soul numbers.
band features some great, well respected musicians with a wealth of experience.
Mike Andersen Band`s ambitions go way beyond the town of Aarhus and Denmark where the band is based, and if the current buzz among agents, fellow musicians and fans is anything to go by, there is a long and successful international career to look forward to.
is much more than an imitator...there is no doubt that he sets himself
apart from the rest of the new breed of guitarists as a man consumed by
the blues. Whether it was determination or an in-built sense, he managed
to find a voice and a guitar style that are uniquely his own. He shows
that he had many influences from Johnny 'Guitar' Watson to BB King, but
in the end, what you listen to is pure Mike Andersen."
