Well, that's anything but routine! The Finnish blues band Micke Bjorklof & Blue Strip delivered an energetic and highly emotional show at their anniversary concert " Twentyfive Live At Blues Baltica ", which fortunately for us vinyl record fans was excellently recorded on record
This vibrant concert in front of 1200 enthusiastic listeners demonstrates clearly this band's special qualities: the finest songwriting, outstanding instrumentals and first class singing satisfy any desire. Unbelievable were the force and the intensity that went into every single song of this concert. On top of that, the guys showed an enthusiasm on stage that can even be heard on this album", says Helge Nickel (Baltic Blues Society). "That night the response of the enthusiastic audience somehow drove the band to a new energy level which I think you also can feel when you listen to this album. When we went through these recordings later, this show stood out for its good energy level throughout the show", Björklöf continues. "We came to the conclusion that a live album recorded from one show might be the way to go and makes for a better showcase of what this band is about
which is: entertaining the crowds! So here we are and we are proud and excited to present the first ever concert album by Micke Bjorklof & Blue Strip". No doubt, this great live experience will further fuel the international career that the band is now focusing on after it has already taken them all over the place from Tokyo to the world's most Northern blues festival in Svalbard.
