A great lineup of seasoned players; Gary Preston’s fiery harmonica, piano, and soulful vocals are supported by Anita Bonkowski’s deep rhythmic grooves on bass and drums. It’s all capped off by the tasty guitar stylings of David Schade, and for the 4-piece, with the steady and powerful bass playing of Ron Lukawitski. Humor, energy, and a surprisingly wide range of styles – from lonesome harmonica to polyrhythmic New Orleans grooves.
