"Blues In Poland-The Bluesers Receive Radio Airplay"

You guys have a very cool and fresh sound. It's great to find a band that wants to do their own thing, deep in the blues but still searching for their own identity. Both albums, the studio one " Shut The Front Door " and the live one " Live At Trendz "show that you guys have a bright future in the business!

It will be my pleasure to feature your music in my shows. I'm sure my listeners will enjoy it as much as I do!

Best wishes,
Przemek Draheim - The Bluesers
