Pat Fulgoni (Kava Kava, Cabinet of Millionaires) has released his new live album titled ‘Dark Side Of The Blues’. Featuring a stellar lineup of musicians from the Czech area, at gives a sturdy repertoire of standards and favorites from the golden era of the blues with the conviction of a bluesman who sold his soul to the devil at the crossroads and never looked back. Each musician gets a turn at the spotlight as this is a showcase for a new band in the making only waiting for COVID to end to get busy with the blues. Magnificent.
About ‘Dark Side Of The Blues’
Before lockdown, UK singer Pat Fulgoni rehearsed his new blues band the “Pat Fulgoni Blues Experience” for a European tour. No stranger to the blues Pat has in the past released an excellent solo blues album in Prague with many leading players from the Czech blues scene and you can often find his dulcet tones on many a modern electronic music production c/o BBC Radio One. Possibly why The Wire magazine referred to him as the “Jack Bruce of the e -generation”.
The Blues Experience was all set for European festival dates this summer including the Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival, Colne and Blues Alive, Sumperk, Moravia before the corona blues struck. They’ll pick up after covid and Pat is already pencilled in for the Sumperk Blues Alive Festival, November 2021.
