Boogie Patrol play the soundtrack to a party any day of the week

The Boogie Patrol set the soundtrack for a party every day of the week, even on a Thursday at the Slice, like they did, May 12.
 But first up, the Darryl Düus band including bassist Steve Harris, drummer Tyler Bird and lead guitarist Taylor Ackerman opened up the show by getting the audience in the mood to Boogie with a supremely tight set of rocking blues music.

The band totally clicked together. They played my favourite version of “Rolling and Tumbling,” and a lot more.
 The Boogie Patrol usually sell out the Slice when they come to town, but didn’t this time. Too bad because people missed a great show. I love being able to say that, especially when I am getting sick of people telling me I’ve missed a great show. Well, I catch the ones that count. Like this one.
 The Boogie Patrol started with an extended jam on “Ain’t Much For Talking,” from their CD “Groove on or Bug Out,” which set the tone for the rest of the show. They introduced several extended jams on original psychedelic, R and B  tinged songs which kept the toes tapping. They included several new songs to appear on an upcoming album.
 The playing was impeccable, with plenty of  outstanding guitar, a groovy bass and a solid backbeat. And frontman Rotten Dan sure knows how to blow the old harp, vibrating with every molecule of his being as he howled the blues from the bottom of his heart.
The understated keyboards added to the groove and the good times provided an integral part of the Boogie on stage.
