REVIEW BY: Justin C.

Now, I know "technically" Eric Sardinas isn't HEAVY METAL -- he's usually described as a "blues guitarist," though "guitar god" would be far more accurate -- but his music and performance are more powerful and heavier than 90% of what passes for heavy metal these days!! And as far as HARD ROCK goes? No one, and I mean NO ONE rocks harder. Sardinas' take on rock may be all about the roots (the blues), but there is nothing dated or retro about it. Some things are timeless, and Eric's music qualifies.

And his concerts? Well, they are a sight to behold!! Many of his on-the-road shows are between 3 and 4 hours long, and all will leave you speechless!! We {Bob, Crystal, and I} traveled 225 miles to Wichita, Kansas to catch Eric & Co.'s travelling show at The Roadhouse Blues!! Not a short jaunt by any stretch of the imagination, but well worth the long haul!!

Eric's outfit is a straight-ahead three-piece (no DJ scratchin', not needed). He is supported by bassist Paul Loranger and drummer Mike Dupke -- formerly of party-rock heavyweights Hair Of The Dog, and more recently did the drumming on the self-titled debut album from black metallers Black Holiday: http://blackholiday.net.

About the show: The band came on at 9:30 blazing through set regulars "Imperial Strut," "You Don't Love Me," "I'm Worried," "The Girl I've Been Loving," "Get Along Rider," "Flames Of Love," "Same Ol' Way," "I Can't Be Satisfied," "Come On In My Kitchen," "Down In The Bottom" {complete w/ Dupke's Bonham-esque drum solo (god, I miss those!), and an appearance from Mr. Bud Weiser... If you haven't seen Eric Sardinas' brand of beer-bottle slide, you are letting one of the best and raunchiest things in rock pass you by!!}, and the finale of "Treat Me Right!!"

There were obviously a few instrumental jams that I don't know the titles of in there, too, but they were KILLER nonetheless!!! The band was as tight as ever (and that is saying something) and louder than ever!!! My ears are still ringing!! It just doesn't get any better than this. If you have a chance to catch Eric live, TAKE IT.

The current tour is underway, and info about it can be found at Eric Sardinas' Official Site: http://ericsardinas.com.
