Steve Gadd on the BLICHER HEMMER GADD project:
“It was our debut tour and I had a ball playing with these guys, it was a lot of fun and I think that this could become a really unique trio. The crowds were so receptive and they really loved Michael’s music and us as a band. They made us all feel very appreciated – that was really something! The music that Michael wrote for this band is just very unique and it fits perfectly to his and Dan’s way of playing. I grew up listening to organ bands – I love that kind of music. I know Michael has been listening to a lot of great New Orleans drummers, and I think he has come up with his own unique thing and the crowds loved it. “
BLICHER HEMMER GADD ‘OMARA’ Australian Tour will be a once in a lifetime experience for all music lovers.
