Well Saturday December 22nd will definitely be a day that I remember for a very long time. This is the night I got to witness Santos y Sinners doing what they do best! I walk into Gallagher's Pub in HB and order my usual to set the mood for some good music. Anybody that knows me that I am a fan of deep rooted music and I always anticipate what I am about to hear by what the band is setting up. I have never been so blown away how these guys opened up their set. What they have put together is nothing short of phenomenal. Razor sharp guitar playing, gritty whiskey delta harp, soulful precision bass and rockin percussion! These guys bring what the blues truly is out of your soul! They played a song called "Long Long Road", that is available for free. There is nothing like listening to the blues when it is deep rooted and played with a heart's passion. I was trying to get as close as I could to capture what they had in store for us. Everybody was celebrating what they were hearing in their own way, dancing, head nodding screaming and yelling, it was all happening. All in all, everybody's feet were moving! I may have danced with woman or two myself somewhere in the back during their set. I am telling you. If you are looking for some great, classy yet dirty down home blues. These are the guys that you want to clear you schedule for!
Now I did learn something about this band and where their roots come from. One thing that I heard during their set was," Hey everybody download our song Long Long Road, we made it free so that when we get together again we can all sing it together"! I learned later what that song is about and what makes it so great. This track is a celebration of a loved one that has been called back home. They talk about the Long Long Road back home and their personal implications. This is what music is all about, sharing good times, bad times, triumphs and struggles. Let's get this song and sing it together!
Santos y Sinners, I know you have a huge fan-base and I am definitely one of them and can't wait to get together again in the near future!
