Not only does Pat Travers' passion connect with the audience but the band is on the same plane complimenting each other with some of the best players around executing his music, reading each other flawlessly. Pat’s professionalism is outstanding and he still has that one thing that adds to a musician’s success which is hunger. That is difficult to say about musicians who have been around since the 70’s, which is why Pat Travers is one of the best blues rock musicians alongside greats like Rory Gallagher and Gary Moore.

“Hello Londa. Thank you for joining my professional network. I admire your work experience and talent. I enjoyed your review of the Pat Traverse band. I played with the band in 1984 lead guitarist all over south Florida and the Fort Lauderdale strip briefly. I Met Pat Traverse because we were neighbors in Coral springs Florida at that time. I still shred a mean “Snortin Whiskey.” But my favorite song I played with Pat was cream cover of Born under a bad sign.”

Best regards, —Brian Dyer

REVIEW

Pat Travers Band

Eddie’s Attic
Atlanta, GA

 

 

“Pat Travers is one of the best blues rock musicians alongside greats like Rory Gallagher and Gary Moore.” — Londa R. Marks

 

Blues Rock Guitarist Pat Travers performed at a small concert venue in Decatur, GA, the outskirts of Atlanta, on a Tuesday night, as if performing to a crowd of many thousands. When you experience Pat Travers prepare to be transported to his world of music as if nothing else around you exists for an hour and half. You feel his passion during the show and for days after. He attacks guitar impeccably with every ounce of his soul. His vocals are seductive and sound is well crafted. You become part of his message.

 

Most of the favorite Pat Travers songs were played including: Crash And Burn, Stevie, Statesboro Blues. The show started with hammering, hard blues rockin’ energy, not words describing what they were going to do, but pure power drew you in and didn’t dissipate, didn’t let go, didn’t stop. The end of the performance arrived too soon.
