Underrated Bands: June 2017

In the first edition of Underrated Bands, a new monthly video series on Blues Rock Review, the spotlight is put on The Brew, The Heavy Eyes, and Robert Jon and the Wreck.

    All I got to say is go and find “Eliza Neals” wherever she and her band are playing it’s truly a musical experience like 1969 I was there then and she makes me feel it NOW… will not disappoint

    I too like the idea of Underrated Bands.
    From an earlier response I am familiar with JJ Grey and Mother Hips. I feel a need to drop a few other names; Davy Knowles, Samantha Fish, Mike Zito, Eric Steckel, and Devon Allman. You’ll find these artists are seriously buried deep into the Blues/Rock genre.

    Albert Cummings absolutely blew me away. Hard to believe he’s not more nationally renown.
