Joe Gaspar Band / Press

“Today’s audio podcast features hot Ottawa power-blues trio JOE GASPAR BAND – including one of the best vocalists in rock and blues North America has today. Listen to a great set of professional studio&live recordings on ReverbNation or read the band’s profile. My friendship with Joe Gaspar, the band’s leader (vocals and bass), goes back to 1993 in Transylvania. At the time, I was promoting good music as a live FM radio jock, while Joe worked hard as a musician in another superb trio, QUO VADIS.”

““One of the most exciting parts of the Ottawa Blues Society’s Road to Memphis competition is the opportunity to see local musicians develop from year to year. Joe Gaspar and his band are a great example … from the 2010 entry with the band then called ‘Union Jack’ to the 2011 entry of the Joe Gaspar Band, we saw a band improving in every way – tighter, great vocals, better choice of material and innovative original lyrics. Our Road to Memphis judges were particularly impressed with the vocals and wanted to hear more. Of the Joe Gaspar Band originals, my personal favorite is ‘Shame’, particularly the sincerity of the lyrics emphasized by the heartfelt vocals and sweet guitar solos.””
