A favorite of critics, New Blues Revolution has received rave reviews from several national music magazines. Fred Goodman, editor of Cashbox, wrote, "The material has...strong hooky melodies in abundance." Music Connection describes the show: “When you see this powerhouse band you’ll be entertained by...a cry of the Stones’ Exile on Main Street. On the other hand, the original sounds and stage presence places this band in a category of their own. When it’s time to rock, no messin’ around -- they rock with counterblows -- yet the ballads come off smooth and well-written."
New Blues Revolution performs at top nightclubs, concerts and festivals in Europe and the United States including the House of Blues in West Hollywood and at Disneyland. Television appearances range from live satellite broadcasts from New York City to prime-time TV in Europe. Broadcast performances of New Blues Revolution in major U.S. television markets confirm the appeal of the band's music. Los Angeles television appearances include KNBC, KCAL, KCOP and KMEX. New Blues Revolution has opened for diverse musical legends, including Tab Benoit, Macy Gray, Dionne Warwick, Rick Derringer, Johnny Mathis, Burt Bacharach, Leon Russell, Blood Sweat & Tears, Three Dog Night, Eddie Money, Katey Segal and Michael Shenker.
The unique, distinctive musical style of New Blues Revolution is forged from a combination of the members' individual backgrounds and strengths. The result is a catalog of new blues music, from jazzy, high-energy rock to thoughtful ballads. On stage this foursome delivers powerful live performances that keep audiences returning for more.
"What happened from 8 p.m. when the band hit the stage to around 10 p.m. when they did their last set was brilliant...fronted by singer, songwriter and pianist Bill Grisolia, guitarist Chap Cooper, drummer Brad Dawson and bassist Hank Van Sickle (formerly of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers), the new Blues Revolution took us into some interesting musical territory....this band is onto something great." - RANDOM LENGTHS NEWS.
