Live Review 599
continue our chapter: Bluesrock guitarists, who have not yet been
discovered by the big wide world, but only by insiders and friends of
the sophisticated blues. Although David Gogo is an always returning
guest here in Europe, where he uses this opportunity to play the local
clubscene up and down the countries. - On the other hand he
unfortunately belongs to these highly talented artists, who play their
butts off and still hasn't managed to climb up a little further on the
ladder of success yet. Let's call it the average ignorance of Bluesrock
or the leaking musical generell knowledge of people over here. We will
never know for sure. But well, we had this topic before in quite a few
One thing is
for sure, this good man definately belongs to the blues scene. And to
repeat myself, for real fans and Blues lovers, Mr.Gogo does already
belong to their record collection for a long time already....
Munich's Garage Rockclub is honoured to welcome David Gogo and band.
Some 100 people have found their way to this place to convince
themselves about the talent of this canadian musician. Oh, by the way,
not to forget to mention his european backing band, who is Jasper Mortier
Ronald Oor (Drums), both from the Netherlands. These guys have a musical
carriere on their own, but are playing with David for quite some years
You can feel,
that these 3 guys do know each other very well, and they are perfectly
tuned to each other. Though David himself mumbles about some mistakes he
plays because of sore fingers. Well to be honest, something like that is
only human, but nobody is bothered and has even realised. - He is good
in what he does, no doubt about that. But compared to some other
Bluesrocker, who are playing themselves in a highly sweating trance
condition, he rather goes for a more laid back blues variety. His songs
show an average length of about 4 to 5 minutes, exept the jamsessions
and the medley.
we hear a Cover of the classic tune ‚Hoochie Coochie Man’, also
performed with a harder edge.
that he also enjoys himself and during the whole show he seems to
somehow very impressed by our fairy animal - the bavarian Wolperdinger....
about the broken guitar string, which at least gives David the
possibillity to perform a song on one of the other three guitars,
celebrating sort of a premiere. Afterwards the string gets exchanged on
stage while we get entertained with some funny anecdotes.
there's nothing to complain about David Gogos gig here in Munich. He's a
great musician and an amusing entertainer taking care for a good night
out, one of these occassions you like to remember for a longer time
including Jägermeister and well.... what can I say.... - Wolperdinger
