Mott and his quartet are ready to make their mark on the world with a snap crack bang from drummer Andrei Koribanics setting up the groove for Sean Ronan on guitar and Dean Shot on upright, electric bass with Vin Mott and his full-throated growl and scorching blues harp. New Jersey working bluesman Vin Mott and his band are undoubtedly versed in the ways of Chester Burnett. You’ll swear you just set the needle down on a Chess records vinyl from 1952.
Vin Mott’s Rhythm & Blues Band draws heavily from the heroes of Chicago and Memphis blues, paying homage to originators such as James Cotton, Little Walter, Junior Parker, Muddy Waters, and Howlin’ Wolf, while adding the band’s own flare and modern sensibility. The sound is live and raw, ballsy and guttural, a true testament to the 12-bar blues form with every instrument in the band working together to find the perfect groove. Mott’s lyrics are angry, sometimes sarcastic, written with urgency, and a nothing to hide no holding back attitude.
