Fantastic! Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers at The Vic Theatre (January 1, 2016)

The Gramblers take the stage and get the first song rocking. Then, Nicki Bluhm makes her grand entrance wearing an all-white one piece all outfit carrying a glass of red wine. “I’m starting off the year living dangerously!” In the middle of their set, they play “Piece of My Heart” by Janis Joplin.  It’s a great match to the band’s sound and the crowd eats it up.  Later on they play, “Little Too Late”. It’s impossible not to move along with a smile on your face while listening to this song. It’s a perfect piece of Americana Soul.

For the next song, the lead guitarist begins slowly sliding familiar notes. “Hell yeah!” yells out an audience member. The tension builds as the band joins in one by one. It’s an extended intro to “Ravenous”, the Fleetwood Mac style rocker that showcases the band as a finely tuned music machine. The song sounds like one you have been listening to all your life. This is a band worth following for the rest of your life. Catch them on tour now!
