It’s been a busy decade for Riot and the Blues Devils. After two self-released albums, eponymous (2005) and Tough Times (2007) they hooked up with Iguane records for their 3rd release, No one to blame but me (2012-Iguane/DEP/Universal). Their latest release, Turn it up…Live! (Ambiance Ambiguës/DEP/Universal), is a live CD with a bonus DVD. It features original songs from Riot and the Blues Devils’ 3 studio CDs as well as a few covers including I’m ready (Muddy Waters) and Folsom Prison Blues (Johnny Cash). Turn it up…Live! will please blues/rock fans by it’s energy and intensity.
Riot and the Blues Devils are available for festival bookings. The band is available as a 3 piece (gtr+vox/bass/drums), as a 4 piece with a harmonica player, and as a 5 piece with a B3 and piano player.
