This episode, I speak with Blake Saban from the band The Urban Chiefs. Blake has been playing a CBG (built by the famed Arthur Moody) for a good few years, as one of his standard stage and recording instruments. Blake and The Urban Chiefs have been relentlessly touring for years and have released a number of fantastic CDs and just recently a live DVD which has to be seen. Having seen these guys live I can attest to their huge stage presence and great songs.
Contact Blake Saban at www.theurbanchiefs.com to purchase an album or DVD
contact me, Adam Harrison at www.birdwoodguitars.com
Hope you are enjoying the new episodes.
