Selwyn Birchwood
The Nick Moss Band

The Bradfordville Blues Club

-- by Gary Anton

Selwyn Birchwood - Friday May 26th at 9:00 PM.
Blues Music Award Winner and Alligator Recording artist Selwyn Birchwood and the Selwyn Birchwood Band return to the corner stage on Friday, May 26 to celebrate his just released cd "Pick Your Poison". Selwyn is a Florida native, born in Orlando who now calls Tampa home. His next door neighbor in Orlando happened to be lap slide blues legend Sonny Rhodes who took the then 19 year old guitarist under his wing and on the road. Selwyn captured the 2013 International Blues Challenge championship and the Albert King Guitarist of the Year Award in Memphis! Then he took home the 2015 Blues Music Award for Best New Artist Album. Selwyn quickly went from a Florida talent to national and international status. It couldn't happened to a nicer guy--great person, great band, original sound-- he tears up the place each time he comes to town. Quite the entertainer, too. He's a fine classic style blues player--a lot of feeling, string bending, tasteful slide and a mess of lap steel guitar--ala Sonny Rhodes. He calls his music "Florida Blues" --swampy and bluesy with a healthy dose of old school R&B, soul and gospel. He is well on his way to bigger things with a soulful voice, a knack for song writing and entertainer written all over him. It all adds up to a funky and hip shakin' performance with a solid group of journeymen blues players behind him, including long time saxman extraordinaire Reggie Oliver and Huff Wright on thundering bass and Courtney Girlie on drums.

The critics hail Selwyn's talents:

"A powerhouse player and emotive performer…his band, his material and both his skilled guitaring and soulful vocals are the essence of fully-formed. Birchwood is a major player. Highly recommended." --Rolling Stone

"Selwyn Birchwood is an indelibly modern and original next-generation bluesman; his tough vocals, guitar and lap steel touch on classic Chicago blues, Southern soul and boogie." --Washington Post

"Watch out for Selwyn Birchwood…a genius revelation and a pleasure. Roaring Fender Strat and down-south lap steel guitar." --Blues Matters

"Selwyn Birchwood is making waves, surprising people and defying expectations. Be on the lookout. He revels in the unexpected." --Living Blues

Very highly recommended! A club favorite.

The Nick Moss Band - Saturday, May 27th at 9:00 PM
The Nick Moss Band with blues harmonica ace Dennis Gruenling take the corner stage on Saturday, May 27th at 9:00 pm featuring Nick's new cd "From the ROOT to the FRUIT" which garnered two 2017 Blues Music Awards. This Windy City group lays down a combustible mixture of contemporary blues/rock and some of the finest classic Chicago blues that you'll hear. Nick learned from the best--spending many years playing in Chicago with legends Jimmy Rogers, Pinetop Perkins, Willie "Big Eyes" Smith and a host of others. Overall, the group has been nominated for about 20 Blues Music Awards, including 4 nominations for Band of the Year and has taken home two Blues Blast Awards. Nick is a superbly talented guitar player, songwriter, singer and harp player.


He's backed up by a tight 4 piece unit including the phenomenally talented Michael Ledbetter on guitar, vocals and percussion; Patrick Seals on drums, Nick Fane on bass and Taylor Straff on drums. Add Dennis Gruenling on harp and you have a highly combustible music machine.

What folks say about the band:

“Moss is the rare blues artist who refuses to fall into a musical rut—this alone makes Time Ain’t Free essential listening.” — Elmore magazine

“Their eponymous leader sings with a personable twang, and issues commanding solos from his Gibson SG that are every bit the equal of anything the Allmans’ great Warren Haynes can summon.” — New York Observer

This is an exceptionally good high powered blues band. Highly recommended! A don't miss!
