10 Years of Groove Now - Stars & Friends - Chicagos very Best and Alligator Recording Artist!

Nick Moss Band featuring Dennis Gruenling & andrew Duncanson (USA)

Nick Moss is a regular at Groove Now, which is one of the reasons why he cannot miss playing this year on the 10th anniversary year of Groove Now. For the two shows, Groove Now and Nick agreed to include the incredible singer and guitar player Andrew Duncanson. Andrew’s own band– the Kilborn Alley Blues Band – have recorded the first four records on Nick’s label.

Alligator Records’ artist Nick Moss is deeply rooted in the Chicago Blues tradition with 12 solo releases, always creating fresh new songs to carry that tradition forward. He paid his dues gigging in Chicago’s rough and tumble West and South side Blues clubs under the tutelage of some of the city’s greatest Blues luminaries. He learned directly from, and toured with, Blues giants Jimmy ‘Fast Fingers’ Dawkins, Willie ‘Big Eyes’ Smith, and Jimmy Rogers.

Moss is a thrilling guitar player, a gritty, honest singer, and his band is tough as nails. New Jersey’s Dennis Gruenling is considered among the very top Blues harmonica players today and a terrific showman. His fat-toned harp work, soulful singing, and raw-boned, untamed energy are a perfect foil for Moss’ hair-raising guitar playing and commanding vocals. This self-taught, world-class talent will be joining Nick’s band, as will Andrew Duncanson, whose vocals stand out in most of today’s Blues and Soul bands.

The classic Chicago Blues sound Moss knows, lives, and loves is not a recreation of old songs. Both Moss and Gruenling write memorable originals, all rooted in the Blues tradition.

Nick Moss – guitar, vocals
Dennis Gruenling – harmonica,  vocals
Andrew Duncanson – guitar, vocals
Michael Weston Archor – bass
Patrick Seals – drums
Taylor Streiff – piano, organ
