Mascot Label Group is home to some of the world's’ finest modern blues/blues rock artists. Rockin’ The Blues 2018 tour is on sale now and will feature the exceptional talents of Eric Gales, Quinn Sullivan and Gary Hoey for a triple guitar hero extravaganza.
Talking about the idea and setting up the festival the Mascot Label Group CEO Ed van Zijl remarks; “A label festival has been in the back of my mind for a few years. Now it is finally happening and March 2018 will see the first edition of the Rockin’ The Blues festival. Seven shows in three countries! It is our intention to extend the festival each year with more shows and adding countries. Besides going out and meeting our audience, this festival is also important to us to use as a springboard to bring new talent to the fore, in 2018 this will be Quinn Sullivan.”
Eric Gales has been wowing audiences for some time; “One of the best, if not the best guitarists in the world today” states the little known guitar player Joe Bonamassa. Eric’s latest album “Middle of The Road” went to number 1 immediately upon release with his recent UK and Ireland dates being sellout triumphs. Gary Hoey will need little introduction having shot to fame via “Hocus Pocus” and the “Endless Summer II” soundtrack in addition to his columns for guitar magazines and blistering latest release “Dust and Bones”. The third part of this trinity is 18 year old guitar prodigy and Buddy Guy protégé Quinn Sullivan who has been a music professional for more than 75 percent of his life. He’s shared the stage with Buddy Guy aged eight, Eric Clapton and many others with his third studio album “Midnight Highway” on release now to critical acclaim. A mixture and heady cocktail of experience, youth and most of all spicy guitar playing.
The tour will take in dates in Germany, the Netherlands and culminate in London at The Garage on Saturday March 17 2018. Not only is this 3 bands (plus a special guest and all ticket holders have the chance to meet the artists) for your hard earned cash at a fantastic price point, but in addition for only an extra £15 the guitarists out there will be climbing over each other to attend the guitar clinic. This will be a rare chance to get up close, learn from these monster players who have a story to tell and are advocates of passing on they know to others.
Rockin’ The Blues is one of the hottest tickets for 2018 and a must for all blues rock fans and guitarists.
