‘Ruzz Guitar’s Blues Revue’ – A powerful, Soul injected Blues/R’n’B/Rock’n’Roll band hailing from Bristol UK and lead by Gretsch endorsed guitarist Ruzz Guitar. After taking inspiration from many great guitarists such as Wilko Johnson, Brian Setzer, Jim Heath and Jimmie Vaughan, Ruzz has developed what he has learnt into his own style which is quickly becoming recognized around the globe.
After a few years of playing with multiple Blues and Rockabilly band’s from Bristol and Bath and playing all over the UK and Europe, Ruzz decided to put together this Blues/R’n’B/Rock’n’Roll band to showcase his unique, multi-genre guitar playing and song writing. Joining forces with drummer Mike Hoddinott and upright bassist Joe Allen from Bristol, they come together to create the unique sound that is “Ruzz Guitar’s Blues Revue”.
Since the band started in 2014 they have been going from strength to strength.
They have opened for, and shared the stage with, many well-known artists such as Dr Feelgood, Innes Sibun (Robert Plant), Jon Amor (The Hoax), Pete Gage (Dr Feelgood), Kirk Fletcher (The Fabulous Thunderbirds/Joe Bonamassa/Solo), The BlockHeads (Ian Dury & The Blockheads), Bill Kirchen, Darrel Higham (Imelda May/Jeff Beck/Solo), Kid Ramos (James Harman/The Fabulous Thunderbirds) and Junior Watson.
