Delhi2Dublin almost overshadowed by the Boogie Patrol

A busy week of full house shows kicked off with a blast on Tuesday as Delhi2Dublin returned to Lethbridge to heat up the Slice, Sept. 14.
Delhi2Dublin played a typically energetic and sweaty set featuring fetching fiddle player Kytami which fused hip hop with a variety of world music and rock into a whirlwind of energy and dancing. Guitarist / Electronic Sitarist Andrew Kim sported a Slayer T-Shirt while playing his guitar with a  violin bow.
 But I was more impressed with Edmonton blues/ R and B band Boogie Patrol, who made their Lethbridge debut and who deserve their own headlining show. I rave about a lot of bands, but the Boogie Patrol was something special. I haven’t been this impressed by a band in a long time — they had the energy and musical chops to spare.
They showed what is so great about the blues — it is meant to take your troubles off your mind and your mind off your troubles, which is exactly what the Boogie Patrol did in an intensely sweaty and energetic set of blues and soul.

 They had the dance floor filled as they delivered a sine set of hyperactive funk and upbeat blues music  full of killer musicianship and boundless energy. Delhi2Dublin had their work cut out for them to beat that set. 
Boogie Patrol played most of their CD “Groove On or Bug Out” and sang it soulfully like they were big black guys from New Orleans instead of skinny white guys from Edmonton.
 They also added their own funky touch to the Beatles’ classic “Come Together” to wind down their set, but were called back for several encores.
