“Wild man.” Those two succinct words are perfect to describe the Florida born, Los Angeles resident Eric Sardinas and his band Big Motor, especially during incendiary (literally) live performances.
Also, perfectly describing are “guitar pyrotechnics,” “party hard,” and “stadium-suitable.” Unfortunately, “pure blues” is not an accurate description of the songs on his new high-octane album ‘Boomerang.’
Indeed, there are two traditional covers such as Lieber and Stoller’s “Trouble” and Howlin’ Wolf’s “How Many More Years.” But, no matter which way one defines blues, Eric Sardinas will make listeners’ ears ring and their boomboxes explode.
Alongside Sardinas are the members of his band Big Motor: Levell Price on bass and background vocals; Bryan Keeling on drums and background vocals; Dave Schulz on keyboards; Celine Cavin on Mojo Juice harp, and kazoos on track ten by the Hilo Bay Honorary Brigade. Matt Gruber also stars on background vocals
