 HOLLAND K SMITH





"I would choose HOLLAND K. SMITH, who in every show he played showed an overflowing energy and an amazing stage presence with impressive versions of “Keep On Knockin'”, “Take me to the River”, “Evil”, “Stagger Lee” or the famous song he wrote for George Thorogood “Rock Party” " 
-Roser Blues/ European Blues Union, Barcelona Spain (On The Hondarribia Blues Festival Performances, July 2014)
