LAST CALL!!!!! This Thursday 7th June we're privileged to have DANNY BRYANT'S REDEYE BAND appearing at The Bullfrog Blues Club in Southsea. This band are SO good I’m coming over from my home in Ireland for this one - arriving late Wednesday and going back Friday! Danny Bryant began playing guitar aged 15, turning professional just three years later, and in the last decade has paid his dues clocking up endless miles of travelling and approximately two thousand shows in many countries around the world. He's acknowledged as one of the cream of the crop of his generation of blues artists. Danny's performed on the same bill as Joe Cocker, Carlos Santana, Greg Allman, Walter Trout, Buddy Guy, Peter Green, and former Rolling Stone Mick Taylor to mention just a few. Danny's fourth CD 'Days Like This' featured a stunning duet with blues legend Walter Trout (John Lee Hooker, Canned Heat, John Mayall). Danny Bryant's RedEye Band's first album for Rounder/Continental -"Live" - hit the I-Tunes top ten blues charts in 6 countries, including Italy, Holland, Belgium and Germany leading to major festival appearances and sold out club dates all across Europe. A track from "Live" was included on a compilation CD released by Virgin/Emi entitled "The Best Blues Album In The World Ever" - Danny appeared alongside many giants of music, including Johnny Winter, Gary Moore, Albert Collins, George Thorogood and ZZ Top. In March 2008 the band released "Black and White" a commercial and critical success, as the album garnered glowing approval from Europe's leading music press and guitar magazines, as well as features, reviews, and articles in highly respected publications including "The Independent", "Classic Rock" magazine and "Mojo" - leading to the band's biggest selling album so far and a year of relentless touring which has seen them play 100 shows in 12 different countries.
