Özgür Hazar's Blues Syndicate

“This debut album is pure ear candy and will please both blues adepts as bluesrock fanatics. Superb record!”
“It’s useless to select the highlights, because all tracks are fantastic!”

Dutch blues magazine ‘Back To The Roots’ ran short on superlatives to describe the debut album ‘Sad And Blue’ by Özgür Hazar. En now you can experience this Belgian-Turkish guitar hero with his Louvain-based collective ‘The Blues Syndicate’ live at work too. A star-quality quartet of long-time blues cats - with next to Hazar also Pieter Akkermans on Keys, Geert Zonderman on bas and Vincent Caers on drums - that will play the songs from ‘Sad And Blue’ mixed with all-time favorites from artists such as B.B. King, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan. A musical journey along the Mississippi River from Chicago to New Orleans and from Houston, Texas to Memphis, Tennessee, all straight at your local stage.
