The Bucks County Blues Society Spring Fever Footstomper has been an annual event since its first appearance in 1981 with Luther Allison as headliner. The 2019 event was another in an occasional
series “Killer Guitar Thriller” which premiered in 1983 with headliner Matt “Guitar” Murphy.
Acclaimed soul-blues singer/songwriter/guitarist Dave Keller made the long trek from Vermont with his tight and versatile rhythm section of bassist Alex Budney and drummer Jay Gleason. The boisterous audience was treated to a scintillating set that skillfully combined eight diverse songs from artists like Albert King, Sonny Boy Williamson II, Syl Johnson, Candi Staton, Clifton Chenier, and O.V. Wright (one of Keller's major inspirations), with seven originals including four from Every Soul Is a Star, a 2019 Blues Music Award Nominee for Best Soul-Blues Album.
A trio that performs in the soul-blues genre has to lock into an infectious groove early to get the dancers onto the floor and keep them there, as Keller and his cohorts did with energy and exuberance.
This fully live recording captures the raw joy and intensity of that Sunday afternoon's performance. Kick back and listen, and you'll be there too.

Like a younger generation Robert Cray, Keller mixes the power of soul and blues, drawing the listener into his world, and leaving him or her richer for the experience. ... more
