Demon Blues Express
Rodney’s Bait and Tackle, 21 Aug 2021
Fronted by the Master of fuzz tone heavy blues rock guitaring, Dom Mariani, this five piece (with guest) squeezed onto Rodney’s stage and rode the sonic waves like a tiger.
Playing two sets they featured classic Datura4 tracks (think “Evil People”, “Run with Lucy”, “Blessed is the Boogie”, “You Be The Fool” et al), new material from the forth coming release that blew it apart (missed song titles, set for release in 2022) and some choice covers (opps missed titles).
Dom was style on vocals/guitar as always, with Warren and Stu building the thunderous bottom line on drums and bass respectively.
Bob stroked the Hammond with soulful spirt and with Joe laying down sizzling slide it was hot.
Special guest Papa Howie (?) on harmonic blew along and filled the sails for the rumbustious, exuberant voyage of boisterous demon blues based rock.
While the first set laid the foundation by the second set close this unit was cooking. A glorious rendition of “Pissing Up the Wall” climaxed the night as the packed house rocked and partied on.
The power of Datura4 grows.
