Duwayne Burnside and The Delta Saints @ Exit/In 1/28/10

Guitar, guitar, guitar, guitar. If you love technical and tasteful blues guitar playing, and you were at the Exit/In on Thursday, then you probably thought you died and went to heaven. From the moment the show kicked off with my personal favorite, The Delta Saints, the Exit/In was laden with a soulful blues mood that inspired audience members to dance and sing. While there is no need for me to reiterate how big a fan I am of The Delta Saints in general, this performance did showcase two new songs that enjoyed immensely and hope that you all get to hear sometime soon. As The Delta Saints did their thing and left the stage to roaring applause, Duwayne Burnside took the stage almost immediately, quite literally within 5 minutes. With the Les Paul of John Shaw (The Delta Saints’ lead guitar player) and an amp that required some kicking, Duwayne Burnside proceeded to play the blues with immense skill and personality for the next two hours or so. Sitting in for the entire set were John Shaw on guitar and Greg Hommert on harmonica, both of The Delta Saints. This addition of talent provided an excellent avenue for dueling solos and a superb variety of tasty licks. Look for these two bands to be touring together in the future.
