Live @ Sapolil - Kevin Selfe & The Tornadoes Energetic Rockin’ Blues

The Tornadoes’ mix of traditional and contemporary blues is known as one of the tightest and most energetic blues outfits around.  Although Kevin is best known for his guitar work, his other skills have started to garner attention.  Blues Matters (UK) says of Selfe on the CD, “Playing fine harmonica as well, it is his superb deep voice that resonates throughout”.

On drums is the Great Jimi Bott.  Widely considered one of the best blues drummers in the world, Jimi is a 12-time and current Blues Music Award nominee for Best Instrumentalist – Drums, and spent nearly three decades touring the world with The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Rod Piazza, and Mark Hummel.

On Bass is Allen Markel.  Allen moved to Portland in 2007, was immediately noticed for his talent and nominated for the Cascade Blues Association’s Muddy Waters award for Bass in 2008, 2009 and 2010 for his work with Kevin Selfe.
