Singer-songwriter and guitar hero Matt Schofield's powerful blend of blues, funk and jazz guitar has earned him plenty of praise and awards since he first burst onto the scene in '04. He's released eight discs since then, including 2014's Far as I Can See, and was was crowned Guitarist of the Year in 2010, 2011 and 2012 at the British Blues Awards. A true road warrior, he's toured internationally and traded licks with Buddy Guy and Robben Ford. After an appearance in L.A., the Los Angeles Times raved, "In Schofield, the UK has produced the best blues guitarist from any country in decades. Head and shoulders above the herd."

I have to confess, the opening band (Stooges Brass Band) sort of stole the show for me. They really had the audience up and out of their seats, dancing and laughing. Very high energy, choreographed dance moves, felt just like being in New Orleans. Brother Jocephus and the Love Revolution were extremely talented, tight instrumentals and very well done set, but it just seemed a lower energy level after Stooges. Part of it was the fact that it was held at City Winery which caters primarily to middle age folks who had to get to bed early on a Wed night, so many of them filtered out during the show and left less than 50 people by the end of the set. The other part was that I guess you have to literally tell audiences to get up and dance or they won't. The space is arranged with long tables for dining so it's not really shaped like a dance venue the way it was laid out. Also: City Winery is a great venue from a space perspective, but they really do need to upgrade their speakers. Vocals are often hard to hear, instruments get muddied - I noticed it last time we were here but I thought it was just the band. Now I know it's the sound system!
