If Walter blazed away and demonstrated brilliant guitar playing and a devastating vocal, SHERMAN ROBERTSON & his Band added touches of funk, and some ballad artistry to Texas style shuffles.

We still wait patiently for a new album from this son of Houston, Texas, but apparently he's Alligator records biggest signing of the last five years, so an album is on the cards.

I've never seen Sherman so relaxed for years, and together with a superb band he rolled back the years and included some fine material from his best selling "I'm The Man".

Three quarters of the crowd knew all the material, the other 25 per cent were newcomers to Sherman's music, but to a person they left converted. This was classy Texas blues at its very best.
