Tangiers Blues Band Brings Hard Driving Blues To Asbury Park Danny Clinch Can Sure Play A Mean Harmonica
ASBURY PARK, NJ-
“… Making my way to the Park Stage, I could see a crowd of music fans taking up their place on the lawn in anticipation of the Tangiers Blues Band. Originally formed in 1998, the band’s current lineup is King, Chris Scianni, Danny Clinch, Dave Sellar, Pete Levin and Eric Brown.
Front man King was dressed in a trench coat and wearing a white fedora with a black band, not unlike a gangster from a bygone era. With a gorgeous Gretsch double cutout hollow body guitar strung over his shoulder and a smile on his face, he rang out the first chords of the set with the crowd stirring to life. The band is known for its hard driving blues and rock foundation and draws from a broad source of influences to achieve its trademark sound that drives the crowd to move.
From the outset you can see that this is a very well-rehearsed musical unit, from Chris Scianni’s cutting guitar riffs to Danny Clinch’s bluesy, melodic harmonica work this band delivers a sweet, soulful but bold sound that commands attention. While the cast of band members may change from time to time, one thing remains clear is how much fun this band has on stage. Is it possible to be this tight while appearing so loose and spontaneous? Well, check out the Tangiers Blues Band and see for yourself …”
