Black Betty Blues Band :: Sfântu Gheorghe
Black Betty Blues Band was founded in late summer 2013. The name comes from an (often misused) Leadbelly song. The term "Black Betty" was used both for the whip and the whiskey bottle by the black slaves in the 19th century.
The members of the band are going back to the roots of american blues, trying to recall the raw power of this often modernized and misinterpretted music.
Members of Black Betty – Erdei “Big Mac” Gábor (vocals), Módi “Waters“ István (vocals), Könczey “Big White“ Jenő (piano), Tinca “King Bee“ Teddy (guitar), Tóth “Slim Bold Ketsy“ Olivér (bass guitar), Csurulya “Red Bean“ Árpád (drums) – are preforming songs from Howlin’ Wolf, Huddie "Lead Belly" Ledbetter, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Muddy Waters, RL Burnside and many others.
The live performances are kept simple, concentrating on raw music, blues power and nothing more.
