The Rockin' Armadillos are one of Europe's most exciting blues-rock attraction. In a world full of so-so blues bands, The Rockin Armadillos' tough-rockin, funky style stands head and shoulders above the run-of-the-mill. If you love powerful, passionate guitar playing, the Armadillos have it by the spadeful - courtesy of two of the hottest young players in the whole of Europe. If you enjoy irresistible rhythms that you can't help dancing to, the band's rhythm section will connect directly with your feet. And if the combination of a gritty male vocal and a sweet, soulful country-tinged female voice is to your liking, you'll find both these here, too - with a generous side-order of wailing harmonica and some down-and-dirty slide guitar thrown in for good measure! Whether it's sinuous, funky up-tempo numbers, toe-tapping Texas shuffles or soulful, heartfelt slow blues tunes, the Armadillos are THE band...
