Nick Moss & the Flip Tops

Event Date: 
Saturday, January 12, 2013 - 8:00pm

"Nick Moss is my favorite guitarist." - Ronnie Earl

Chicago blues is now synonymous with guitarist Nick Moss. Having spent his formative years touring with Jimmy Dawkins, Jimmy Rogers, and Willie "Big Eyes" Smith, this young Chicagoan carries on the tradition while developing his own distinct sound. Though the golden era of Chicago blues is long past with many of its key players deceased or retired, Nick Moss stands tallest in the current generation of blues performers that honor the letter and spirit of the great urban African-American music.

"... his approach to this music makes him arguably the most exciting young blues player on the scene today. They play with fire and fury but also with control, constructing a brilliant set that never gets boring." - Blues Revue

"Moss doesn’t play like an acolyte or a wannabe, he’s got his hand on the grail. Hard charging set that was born of roadhouse sweat and grit. Real blues fans will love this real deal." - Sadie Mae Review
