Wentus Blues Band with Duke Robillard – Too Much Mustard!
Format: CD – Vinyl
Label: Ramasound Records
Releasedatum: 13 september 2019

The collaboration between Wentus Blues Band, Finland’s most international blues act, and blues legend Duke Robillard began in 1987 in Finland, when the young band got to open for the global star. They developed a warm friendship lasting many years; Robillard was a guest at WBB’s 30th anniversary celebration and also did a joint tour with the band in Sweden.
Now, with ‘Too Much Mustard’, the musicians have realized a long-held plan to make an album together. “It’s not every day, every year or every decade that you see a band whose talents and personalities blend in a way that makes them such a force of nature” Robillard explains in the liner notes. “It’s a very special thing when you get to experience a group like this perform or even hang out with.”
‘Too Much Mustard’ was produced by Robillard, features some of his performances, includes some of his songs reworked with Wentus Blues Band flair, and even includes a Robillard painting on the front cover. The resulting album is a joy to experience, in which the pleasure the musicians took in working together comes through in every note. “Prepare to be taken on a great musical journey,’ Robillard writes, “sit back or put on your dancing shoes, whichever you prefer, turn your hi-fi up and dig the sounds!”
