Dirk Digglers Blues Revue are a British blues rock band who play high octane boogie drawing influence from American and British artists such as ZZ Top, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Rory Gallagher, Peter Green and Dr Feelgood. Cuba Neils, the band’s debut album, was completed in late 2016 and is a collection of their songs to date. Real life tales of women, wine and woe are told over thirteen great original blues tracks. From 70’s rock style opener ‘Nuthin’ Too Untoward’ to Lo-Fi ‘Black Cat Blues’ and Southern style ‘Keep Yo’ Momma Down the Line’, Cuba Neils is 45 minutes of top notch British Blues that is bound to excite any fan of the genre.
The album took its name from Cuba Neils Studio, where it was recorded. During their time at the studio none of the band met Cuba Neil but have been assured he is very nice.
Dirk Digglers Blues Revue are from the Midlands and continue to play the bars, clubs and blues festivals of the UK and are currently working on their second album.
Marty's review: If you like your blues with power, raunch and a generous dose of boogie then you will eat up this debut release from Dirk Digglers Blues Revue. Paying their dues doing live gigs over the last 10 years has certainly honed their talents and the 13 tracks on this well produced release will almost certainly leave you breathless. Turn it up, play it often and play it loud!
