Sidetrackers (DK)

Martin Jønsson (org), Martin Blom (g, voc), Svend Eeg (drm)

The sound of slide guitar, Hammond organ, rock'n'roll piano and drums

Sidetrackers play both their own compositions and selected blues classics. The trio is not afraid to occasionally push the conventions to their limits and trip out with the wah pedal or plunge into a melodic instrumental tune.

Martin Jønsson, organ and piano, Martin Blom, guitar and vocals, and Svend Eeg, drums, know each other very well and have previously played together in different acts. In Sidetrackers, they deliver a cocktail of blues, roots, swamp, southern rock, funky New Orleans cases, rock 'n' roll, lyrical delights, growling Hammond sound, dirty slide guitar in the key of Elmore James and plenty of shuffle groove in the drums.

The repertoire contains songs and instrumental pieces written by Martin Blom such as Night Wind, Time Likes To Slip Away and Bloms Shuffle. Add some selected blues classics with new sounds and mood sin Sidetrackers' renditions. Among others, Rollin 'and Tumblin', Nobody's Fault But Mine and You Don’t Love Me. Dylan's Gotta Serve Somebody also appears on the set list.

The three musicians commenced the new collaboration in December 2018. In the spring of 2019, they are set to release an album after which they are going to tour the country.
