Lloyd Spiegel Blues, a full force, great night out!
Lloyd Spiegel, one of Australia's leading Blues artists and most respected guitarists and a veritable 'force to be reckoned with' is heading our way, playing at the Tauranga Art Gallery on Saturday 29th October 2016.
His incredible command of the guitar, powerful voice and high energy performance captivates any audience.
“Spiegel is all presence, authority, rhythm and drive. He epitomizes control, soul and passion with white hot ferocity and blazing instrumental mastery, dangerous enough to spark a destructive inferno.” - Terry Riley, The Age, Melbourne.
In between extensive touring within Australia, Lloyd has travelled all over the world with frequent tours to Germany, Italy, Japan and the U.S.A, where he's toured coast to coast 6 times. During these tours he has performed at some of the world's best known Blues venues and largest festivals as well as showcasing at every major international guitar player's event in the world. He's played bills with legendary blues artists from Buddy Guy and Etta James to Ray Charles, as well as artists from a range of musical genres including Bob Dylan, Peter Frampton and Willie Nelson.
His recording 'Tangled Brew' was the most played Blues CD on Australian Radio throughout 2010 and 2011, picking up rave reviews. And the 12 month launch tour was highlighted by sold-out shows across Australia, 3 Victorian Blues awards and a hoard of new fans.
“Spiegel has always been known, over a career spanning almost two decades as a guitarist almost without peer but here in the hallowed confines of this record he truly shows why. Spiegel deconstructs how the Blues guitar is supposed to operate, makes sweet love to it, then kicks it out the back door.” - Australian Guitar Magazine.
This man is a fabulous showman, he can deliver a song, take a guitar places you've never heard it go before and will in general provide a full force, great night out.
