And Miracles Still Happen!
After the big wordlwide success of John Lord and Hoochie Coochie Men I thought, that there is no chance for any musician to create as great bluesy music as John Lord and Jimmi Barnes did. But I was mistaken, the hope lives. There IS the band playing blues John´s and Jimmi´s soulful way.
This interesting Australian band is called LAZY EYE.
And who is in the band?
This trio features singer songwriter Evan Whetter on organ and harmonica , Erica Graf on guitar and Mario Marino on drums.
And what is AdelaideWiki saying about them?
