CONCERT REVIEW: "What a tight and exhilarating show, fantastic!"

Another review has arrived for The Rev's Ramblin' Roots Festival performance — this one from the European award winning, Dutch Blues Magazine. Click here to read.

English translation:

I am totally in the blues after this set [by Lance Canales] and that feeling continues with The Reverend Shawn Amos. Shawn Amos is from New York; nowadays he lives in Hollywood. He has played with none other than Solomon Burke, Mark Olson and The Blind Boys of Alabama. He learnt the trade from his mother who was a famous night club singer. What a tight and exhilarating show, fantastic! With his mouth harp and voice channeled through a vintage microphone, he totally captivates the hall. At a certain time he leaves the stage and continues his wonderful show in the middle of the crowd.  There are a number of covers in addition to his own work, such as  David Bowie’s “The Jean Genie” and Janis Joplin’s “Mercedes Benz”. A super performance, make sure you see them again in the near future.
