Blues Revenge : Andreas Gomozias - Tassos Dritsos — Christos Adrianos

Most probably the greatest contemporary Greek blues guitar player.

Blues Revenge is a band aiming right to the soul of blues music, trying to enrich this significant music tradition with elements of other forms such as rock, soul and jazz, creating an interesting musical outcome.

Andreas Gomozias is one of the most important Greek guitar players, combining blues with other musical styles such as R'n'B, soul, rock and jazz. He has been playing guitar since 1980 as a member of "Blues Family" and in 1993 he formed the blues band "Drifting Around". What makes him special is his incredible self-taught musical technique and his communicative power as well as his numerous live performances. Andreas has been influenced by Kenny Burrell, BB King, Joe Pass and Eric Clapton and and has played support for Peter Green, Snowy White, Mick Taylor, John Mayal, Nine Below Zero, Nazareth, Paul Lamp, and Eric Sardina.

In the summer of 2008 along with Tasos Dritsos on the bass and Christos Andrianos on the drums, he formed Blues Revenge, a band that moves from the electric Chicago blues to the West Coast jump blues and from the British rock blues to the New York jazz blues. In live performances they play classic songs by artists such as Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, Freddie King, BB King, Howlin' Wolf, Buddy Guy, Albert King, Peter Green, Eric Clapton, Cream and many more.
