Nicky Moore 5/8/22
"On the face of it, the next act, Nicky Moore and Danny Kyle had been unfairly placed between power Rock Blues acts. One steel guitar and one voice versus all that Blues Rock? No contest, you might think. An open invitation for the audience to drain away. Not a chance of that with the voice of Nicky Moore, a voice of ten normal mortals, and Danny Kyle's intricate guitar work. From the opening number, 'Fruitpickers' Blues', through the title track on their unparalleled new album, 'The Whale And The Wa'ah', the pair won over the crowd. Nicky's voice is a beast in Blues terms, a finely honed power tool that once fronted metal acts Samson and Mammoth. It can still cut through steel. Encore calls came thick and fast and Nicky played favourites from his fine band, Nicky Moore's Blues Corporation, to great applause."
Known as ‘The Voice’, that spanned an amazing three and a half octaves, on Wednesday we reflected back to August 2013 and our very memorable Gravesend BluesFest (pictured), given the sad news of Nicky Moore's passing at the age of 75, and we therefore dedicate today's Video Of The Day of 'Hear Me Howling', filmed that very same day with Danny Kyle, to this larger than life character's memory. RIP Nicky.
