Blues on a sunday evening sounded like a good idea for me and so it was easy to make my choice as I read that Noma Falta is playing at the Smokestack Lightning Blues Club. A very good decision.
End the sunday quietly? No way. Noma gave us no time for a warm up, as she started with Gary Moore’s “Texas strut” and she had us right from the beginning. Powerful and intoxicating I clearly felt her desire to play from minute one. Super catchy, very likeable – Noma is one of the artists with a stage presence where you can’t help to get thrilled. Combined with an excellent sound quality, her bluesy voice and great guitar riffs what more can you expect? The hour with classics from i.e. Thin Lizzy, Fleetwood Mac, B.B. King and The Allman Brothers Band felt more like 15 minutes and ended as it began: with a Gary Moore song. She perfectly finished her show with his “Still got the blues”. And yes, I got the blues all night long!
