The Norwegian blues festival, “FjordBlues” was very impressed of Dan Patlansky
Fjæra Bluesclub with booking boss Leif Egil Verpeide in charge, is known
to have musical flair. A couple of years ago, Royal Southern Brotherhood’s
first ever concert in Norway was at FjordBlues festival. The following
summer this super group was the most talked about act, and the most
celebrated band at Notodden blues festival. (The biggest blues festival in
This year, Fjæra Bluesclub was the first in Norway to book Dan Patlansky
from South Africa. “Magic” and “religious experience” was words in the
crowd after his concert Saturday night.
- A man came up to me and said that this will go down in history on par
with Stevie Ray Vaughan’s legendary club concert at Voss in 1984, says
Leif Egil Verpeide.
Comparison with Stevie Ray Vaughan is good in many ways, it’s easy to hear
that Dan Patlansky inspired by just he – and the guitar icon Jimi Hendrix.
But he is no pale imitation, he is a cultured artist who stands firmly on
his own musical legs. Moreover, he is broader genre than Stevie and Jimi.
There was hardly anyone on FjordBlues this night who thought it was
strange that Bruce Springsteen would have him as warm up artist at FNB
Stadium in Johannesburg in February.
