“ “ Everybody has to listen and respond, and that takes experience.” “We’re solid. We’re like five pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that got plugged into together and they fit.” “We all hit it off because our musical styles are similar. Most blues bands play the traditional Chicago blues that originated from gospel. The Blueshounds sound more like the British blues of the ’60s. It’s more of a rock ’n’ roll blues than the traditional blues.” Dyck goes on to expand on the different musical styles. “Bands like the Rolling Stones heard the traditional blues and gave it their own twist and it caught on. It was picked up by John Mayall, Eric Clapton, the Animals, the Yardbirds and a bunch of others.” ”
"with influences from great icons as Jimi Hendrix, James Cotton, Charlie Musselwhite, Muddy Waters, Taj Mahal the four piece band creates a gutbucket vibe that personifies the living blues"
