Live Music at Uncle Buck’s Dance Barn – Long Tall Deb and Colin John
October 7, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$5.00
Like many blues and soul vocalists of note, Deb Landolt cultivated her soul/gospel honey-dipped voice in church as a child. Her debut “Raise Your Hands” gained heavy rotation on Sirius/XM’s“Bluesville” and garnered attention both for her vocal dynamics and songwriting: owing a lot to her Texas/Mexico border roots.
Transpacific Bluesman Colin John received his early touring miles with Teeny Hodges, Little Mike and The Tornadoes, Henry Grey, Pinetop Perkins, Michael Hill, Hubert Sumlin, Phil Guy, Big Jack Johnson, and Gary Brooker of Procol Harum.
Their one-of-a-kind sound incorporates a solid bedrock of blues and soul sensibilities cross-pollinated with their respective deep roots in Texas and Hawai’i and topped with world roots influences gleaned from their travels throughout the world.
Together, Long Tall Deb & Colin John have performed across Asia, Europe, North America and the Pacific and continue to license their songs in TV and film. Past credits include TNT’s “Good Behavior” Season 1 pilot and indie film “Contrast”.
“Long Tall Deb raises attitude to a new latitude. Her songs cook with more smoke and sauce than all of Memphis, and her soul will break your back. Colin John’s guitar flogs you with a cotton branch ’til you bleed honey.
Together they ride a no-brakes rhythm section locomotive to a time when the rooms were red, the music was black and the untold tales waited patiently for the coming of the voice worthy of the telling. Get ready. Here they come.”
