At an excellent night of British Blues Music on Tuesday in London, the judges had a difficult job, with all 5 acts giving great performances. However a winner had to be chosen and when The Groove-A-Matics featuring Johnny Whitehill were announced as winners it was clearly a popular choice with the audience too. Johnny & the guys gave a great performance on the night showing their combined talents, with front man Mick Cantwell’s triple threat of powerful vocals, authentic harp and superb sax being the perfect foil to guitar maestro Johnny Whitehill’s tasteful and considered playing.
The guys will travel to New Brunswick in September and play a variety of gigs at the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival. Well done guys! Great to see a local blues bands do well. Johnny has already been in The Blues Show studio and the guys will all be coming in soon to talk about the contest, their new CD and much more.
