This fine trio comes to Bluefunk for the third time. Stephen Dale Petit is an American who has made the UK his home and over time has established himself amongst his British contemporaries as a fine player and writer producing numerous albums of of excellent original music whilst developing a fine style of guitar playing that occasionally draws us back through the nostalgia of some exceptional psychedelic blues evoking the heyday of the likes of Jimi Hendrix and his many disciples.
A charming man who expresses an extreme fondness for Bluefunk and 'your wonderful people'. His affinity for our club does indeed apparently run deep which he candidly demonstrated when last with us from the stage, when he announced he had been diagnosed with an aggressive cancer for which he was shortly to undergo the usual vile treatments we know the big C requires.
The good news is that his treatment went well and Stephen is again taking it to the streets. I sincerely hope the prognosis remains positive and I am relieved to be able to welcome this cracking band back again.
