The Greatest Slide Show On Earth Hits Pensacola

This press release was passed our way.  I’ve done a couple reviews of Iron Mike’s releases in The Beachcomber (here and here) and hope to be able to see him when he makes it through Pensacola.

The Greatest Slide Show On Earth, featuring the slide guitar acts Demian Band, and Iron Mike Norton will be doing a four week tour of the southeastern blues circuit in August and September.

Demian Band, from Barcelona, Spain, is made up of Demian Dominguez on guitar and vocals and Daniel Bianchi on the drums. The influences of drums and didley bow, delta blues and raw rock give Demian Band a unique sound that turns live performances into more of a juke joint party than a formal concert.

Iron Mike Norton, from Florida, is considered the founder and king of the swamp stomp genre and is a protege of slide guitar guru Sonny Landreth. Iron Mike also performs in a two piece format and is known for combining urban beats with traditional hill country slide guitar. Iron Mike Norton is signed with GFO Records.

Fans can find music the latest releases from both artists on iTunes, and Amazon.com as well as most music streaming sites.
