2012 CT Blues Challenge Finals Judges' Comments

“A new band, made up of experienced professionals, who came to the competition with the bar set high -- and lived up to the advance expectations. Bob Orsi, known for his harp work with the D. Smith Band, put his harmonica aside and treated us to an intense performance of Soul Blues. Bob's vocal was especially emotional on Percy Sledge's 'Take Time To Know Her'. They led off with 'Good Time Charlie' and filled the dance floor. River City Slim (drums) and Andy Karlok (bass) were integral to the band. The guitar work provided by Orsi and Larry Willey were "spot on". Eric Bertone was excellent on keyboards. They all contributed to the vocals. Quite a performance.”
