Johnny Rogers & Gregor Hilden Band
Johnny Rogers"Get That Soul!"
(Wilmington, North Carolina)
Gregor Hilden Band
Two of a kind: the German guitarist Gregor Hilden and the American soulbrother Johnny Rogers are the " Dreamteam of the Blues..." (Mannheimer Morgen) .
Hilden plays his guitar the "Hilden style", with a touch of Albert King´s funky feeling, the elegance of B.B. King and sensitivity of Eric Clapton, but most of all - it is his own style that makes him so unique.
Johnny Rogers hails from North Carolina / USA where he grew up with black gospel music. His tender voice is pure balm for your soul: exhausting, craving, heartrending he´s expressing great feelings. And he knows how to entertain his audiance! It won´t take long ´till he has everybody dancing and singing along.
The German-American project loves to play music in the soul-blues-tradition of Al Green and Bobby Bland and they have gathered a great backing band behind them, every musician a class of his own.
Earthy blues, funky Rhythm & Blues, Soul and dancegrooves - R & B & Soul - lovers will enjoy the band as well as music fans who like to party.
