The Adventures in Bluesland album receives radio airplay in Europe on Denmark Radio’s Musik Fra Kyst Til Kyst, Dollard Radio’s Radio Girl (Holland), ZuidWest FM (Holland), Le-Blues-des-Canuts (France), NBTMusicRadio (Germany) and others.
Adventures in Bluesland feature the original songs of native Texan Phil Gammage (lead vocals, guitar, blues harp) as well as a diverse selection of classic blues covers. The music is old-school Texas and Chicago influenced blues that gets audiences dancing and keeps them drinking. It is not your typical “bar blues band”. Joining Phil are some of New York’s finest musicians - Don Fiorino (lap steel guitar); Kevin Tooley (drums, vocals); Johnny Cement (bass); Robert Aaron (sax, keyboards); and often special guest performers. Adventures in Bluesland is based in New York and perform at numerous venues throughout the northeast United States.
Upcoming live performance calendar. This schedule includes all performances that are open to the general public. Private parties are exempted. Check back often as we are always adding new dates!
