WESTERLY — New York Blues Hall of Fame inductee and Fodera Guitar artist Dave Fields, whose songs have been recorded by the likes of British bluesman John Mayall, will present a night of blues-rock and beyond at The Knickerbocker Music Center Saturday night at a concert featuring Andy Huenerberg and Lee Jeffryes, along with special guest Dan “The Belting Badman” Cazio.
Cazio, a native Rhode Islander, a powerhouse blues/rock/soul lead singer has performed for more than 20 years at the legendary Bitter End in Greenwich Village with his All-Star band, The NY BlueBook.
"I’m going to have an amazing band," Fields announced on his website about Saturday's concert; "Buddy Allen on bass and Dave Moore on drums! I’m so psyched!"
A live concert with Fields has been called "an electrifying experience" by critics, when his "soulful singing is punctuated with a performance of guitar virtuosity, blues, rock and beyond. His song writing stylings will keep you reeling as well as his power as an entertainer. Each performance is unique unto themselves and is a scintillating, mind bending, uplifting event."
Fields performs all over the US and world and has been awarded "Best Self Produced CD 2006," Mojo Boogie Award," and "Big City Blues Magazine Happy To Have The Blues Lifetime Achievement Award." Legendary British bluesman John Mayall recorded Fields' song “Train To My Heart” on his 2009 CD, "Tough."
