"A MIGHTY FINE ALBUM!"
Table by the Wall offers a glimpse into the unique world of The Bad Day Blues Band.
“A band of brothers, fighting the good fight to bring raw, energetic Rock ’n’ Roll to the stage.”
So says Adam Rigg, lead vocalist and bass player for BDBB. The intensity and the spirit of the band is what sets them apart from others on the scene: the self-confessed bad boys of the blues.
The group attracted the media’s attention in 2017, opening up for Grammy Award winner Delbert McClinton in New York’s Times Square, and went on to win ‘Best New Band’ in the 2019 Digital Blues Awards and Artist of the Month for The Madison Square Garden Company Dec 2019. They performed at the Isle of Wight Festival the same year, and have shared the stage with artists such as Sheryl Crow, Kirk Fletcher, George Ezra, and The Killers.
Mainstream media attention in 2019 and 2020 included BBC Radio 2, BBC introducing, London Live TV, Bass Guitar Magazine, Planet Rock radio and many others.
Endorsed by Orange amps, Guild guitars, Warwick Bass, Rukus drums and Seydel Harmonica. The band already has some high profile admirers.
This is a hefty album - totalling 12 tracks - each one paying homage to their influences from Blues, Rock, Country and even soul. Recorded in some of the best studios in the UK including Abbey Road Studios.
This album showcases both the band’s technical ability and their gift for song writing. As Rigg comments, “Often the heavier songs came about from a blank canvas in the studio, someone pulls a cool riff out of the ether, or a drum pattern that raises an eyebrow”.
They certainly give off the aura of a collective that know’s what they’re doing—and with the swagger of true rock stars, each song has been crafted, honed, and developed into a future classic.
The band’s not-so-secret weapon is virtuoso harpist, Sam Spranger. Endorsed by Seydel Harmonicas, he has been attributed as a leading player on the scene, with his trademark blazing riffs and heart-wrenching solos.
His performance on this album is no exception - highlights being his solo on ‘Stop’, an enigmatic track straight out of a rock opera, and his riffing on ‘The Hustler’: massively distorted harmonica paired expertly with ear-splitting guitar in a small, perfect nod to Led Zeppelin.
This album has it all - the ups and the downs, the light and the shade. The whole album flows, with each song complimenting the next - helped no doubt by bringing in legendary producer Chris Bolster, whose session credits include Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters and Oasis.
