“With his astonishingly accomplished guitar playing, Stevie Ray Vaughan the blues revival of the ’80s. Vaughan drew equally from bluesmen like Albert King, Buddy Guy, and Albert Collins and rock & roll players like Jimi Hendrix and Lonnie Mack, as well as jazz guitarists like Kenny Burrell and Wes Montgomery, developing a uniquely eclectic and fiery style that sounded like no other guitarist, regardless of genre. Vaughan bridged the gap between blues and rock like no other artist had since the late ’60s.”



Three musicians brought together by the passion for American Roots Music the Blues and all the different styles generated by that root.
Vaughan was an easy choice to begin with for the trio because of his versatility in styles:
An Artist with great appreciation for traditional Blues of the past and modern music styles that he managed to combine magically.
This Trio will bring to the audience a full set list of classics from SRV Shuffles and Rock-Blues repertoire to Jimi Hendrix’s Rock and Soul/Funk compositions.
A great SHOW to dance to or just tap your foot and ENJOY THE MUSIC

CHRIS HIATT Guitar & Vocals

“Chris Hiatt doesn’t just play the guitar…he BECOMES one ! ”
That was the review of Portland, Oregon music critic S.P. Clarke upon experiencing the sound of CHRIS HIATT.
Many guitarist find their own way to progress at their craft. For CHRIS HIATT, that way is also his passion, playing live on stage up to 300 dates per year. Night after night, in front of a crowd, is where Hiatt draws inspiration, learns a new riff or maybe finds a better way to phrase.
The years have paid off for CHRIS HIATT. He has crafted a commendable body of songs, having self-produced five albums since ‘Dreaming of Miranda’, his critically acclaimed first release in 1997.
March 2009 brought the release of Hiatt’s first ever live CD, CHRIS HIATT EXPERIENCE LIVE AT BOOTSIE’S HIDEAWAY. The nine tracks (including four Hiatt originals) were recorded absolutely LIVE at Port Orange, Florida nightclub BOOTSIE’S HIDEAWAY.

Along the way, Hiatt has moonlighted with perhaps the country’s finest tribute to Texas bluesman, STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN. Fans and critics alike show up en masse to see and hear Hiatt, a native of Livingston, Montana, scorch through Vaughan classics like ‘Pride & Joy’, ‘The Sky Is Crying’ and ‘Scuttle Buttin”.

A definitive live set was recorded on the band’s 2011 Swedish tour. GOOD CLEAN FUN sold well locally and sales in Scandinavia were even better.
