Danny Click & The Hell Yeahs
Waterfront Blues Festival
July 6, 2013
Again this year recorded from KBOO FM 90.7 here in Portland. A volunteer radio station that has broadcast the festival each and every year. It has become a huge festival & we stopped going due to the big crowds. I now record all that I can & enjoy sharing with you all. As with any all volunteer station there are a few blurps along the way, which I have "fixed" as well as I can. Enjoy, twofthrs

Danny Click�s sound is a refreshing return to smart, sassy blues-inflected rock and roll. Think Tom Petty crossed with John Mellencamp, spiced with the southern tradition of Lucinda Williams and John Hiatt. Add to that Click�s searing guitar reminiscent of Stevie Ray Vaughan and David Lindley, and you�ve got a winning mix. Yet Click doesn�t just pay tribute to his musical heroes, he offers up his own emotionally compelling vision that puts him comfortably in their company.
One of Click's earliest memories is of listening to his mother play slide guitar using a butter knife while she held the guitar flat on her lap. He first picked up his older brother�s guitar when he was six and by the time he was in high school he was gigging around the area in his older sister�s country band. It wasn't long before he discovered the blues and immersed himself in the musical traditions of Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters and others. Click felt the pull of the Austin scene, which was bursting with the energy of Eric Johnson and Lucinda Williams, not to mention the legend of Stevie Ray Vaughan. His songwriting continues in the tradition of the Texas greats � wide-open songs with a dose of hope for all who hear them.
