Big Daddy Wilson (USA)
Big Daddy Wilson was born more than 50 years ago in a small town called Edenton, North Carolina. "I met the blues here in Germany. I didn’t know what the blues was before" Big Daddy Wilson says. "It was here that I found a part of me that was missing for so long in my life." It did not take long and the shy guy who had written some poems started looking for melodies.

"I met the blues here in Germany. I didn’t know what the blues was before" Big Daddy Wilson says. "It was here that I found a part of me that was missing for so long in my life." It did not take long and the shy guy who had written some poems started looking for melodies. He went on stage, jammed all over the German blues scene and made an impression with his warm and soulful voice.
Fortress, being on the stage since 1993, is the oldest performing blues band in Latvia, with its axes remaining unchanged since then. Fortress participates in international blues festivals on invitation bases and regularly performs in various music clubs in Latvia.
The Music of The Cathouse Radio is firmly rooted in the blues with little hints of New Orleans and Chicago blues, Americana, Country, rock and punk. Tempered with a specific tone of Alar’s driving harmonica and a "razor blades for breakfast" kind of voice, Vilho’s aggressive and powerful style guitar, Madis’s bass and Kalle’s groovy drums.
VERY COOL PEOPLELATVIA
VCP is an active-giging band in which all the members love & enjoy to perform live shows more than anything. When they are on the stage they "blow the roof off" of the place & charge audience’s batteries with energy that is coming out from the guys when they are in act.
JUSTINA LEE BROWNNIGERIA
She thrills her fans with unbridled energy and creativity on stage, which she has flawlessly demonstrated over the years.
Justina is undoubtedly one of the strongest and most promising female vocalists in the music industry.
