Marty Sammon / Press

“Backed by a scorching hot band, right from the outset, keyboardist Marty Sammon’s first solo caused the sold-out crowd to sit up a little straighter and listen up.”

“Often he (Buddy) would venture to his right and lead his keyboardist and good friend Marty Sammon through dynamic guitar-versus-keys routines, building up melodies and crashing them into each other”

““Half The Truth” (Devon Allman) points the way, a hard rocking guitar that totally respects the blues changes, and Marty Sammon’s B3 organ adds a crucial RnB element.”

“Buddy had lots of help Wednesday night at the Hollywood Bowl. His band featured Marty Sammon on keyboards, parlaying a strong right hand into some wonderful honky-tonk rhythms.”

“The band (Los Lobos) brought out Buddy Guy’s keyboard player, Marty Sammon, for a couple songs and his playing lit the show's fuse. .”

“The band (Buddy Guy's Damn Right Blues Band), particularly keyboard player Marty Sammon, was jaw-droppingly good, but never took the focus off Guy.”

“Marty Sammon is one of the most legit blues piano players around today. Hearing him you can tell he has a very special understanding of the great, legendary piano players of the genre and ties that knowledge in with his own, very innovative and unique style. The fact that for years Buddy Guy has felt comfortable with Marty sitting at his right hand every night speaks for itself”

“Marty Sammon banged out some of the hottest, most righteous piano playing I've ever heard.”

“Marty Sammons’ brilliant keyboard work soulfully ran up and down his Hammond B3-sounding electric keyboard with a sense of imagination and wild abandon that matched that of his band leader.”

“Además, acompañado, como suele ser costumbre en él, por una banda a la altura, donde destacaron por méritos propios Marty Sammon (excelente a las teclas y cuando se arrancó a hacer coros)”

“..au cours desquelles il laisse d’ailleurs passablement de place à ses musiciens – remarquable Marty Sammon aux claviers. ”

““Love Her With A Feeling,” with its naughty lyrics, featured a powerful keyboard solo by mighty Marty Sammon.”

“I was especially impressed by his keyboard player, whose hands were flying across those eighty-eight's like I've never seen before.....his keyboard skills were astonishing. He and Mr. Guy were trading licks during one number in an amazing display of musical virtuosity. Guy would play a lick on the guitar and the keyboardist would replicate it exactly on piano. There is no question that these gentlemen are musicians of the highest order. ”

“He (Buddy Guy) exchanged solos with pianist Marty Sammon, whose manic honky-tonk hammerings would have garnered a serious shout-out from the grave of Billy Powell.”

“..you might have wanted to see Marty play with his feet or his goatee. He doesn’t give you a break between songs, but just calls the next song and keeps the show going. Marty Sammon is an entertainer.....”
