Boston based blues trio GA-20 is back with a new album Crackdown (Karma Chief Records). The bands name stems from a vintage guitar amplifier made by Gibson back in the 1950’s. Dueling guitars and drums that slap—they’ve been compared to other indie/blues rock acts such as The Black Keys and The White Stripes. To us, their music is reminiscent of early Chess studio recordings of Buddy Guy then anything else. If you are looking for some raw, distorted contemporary blues with grit—you’ve come to the right place.
Make sure to check out their other releases including their album Try It…You Might Like It: GA-20 Does Hound Dog Taylor, and the 2019 debut album Lonely Soul.
Check out GA-20 when they play Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club in Portsmouth, NH on Thursday, February 23rd.
