“Beautiful, emotional, wonderful blues at its best”
Steve Beastie - HRH Radio

"Kicking off the night with Heaven’s Got the Blues from their 2017 debut album A Rebels Story, the moment Jon played his guitar the crowd roared and showed their love and were just pleased to see him back on the stage where he belongs. It must have been a total rush for him to hear the cheers and just to be out there live again doing what he does best; Jonathan is a tremendous guitarist and plays a mix of traditional blues and blues rock, and he also has that blues rasp in his voice" Dave Martin WeBleedMusic.com 9th October Big Wolf Band comeback gig.

“I’m still buzzing from last night ‘s Bourne Music Club gig at The Ypres. It was amazing to have a sell-out event and The Big Wolf Band played an awesome show for a non-stop 2 hour set” Mark Matthews – Bourne Music Club

“Played a blinding set. With a mix of self-penned blues and rock and a few classic covers, they wowed the audience with seamless guitar solos, funky takes and catchy blues shuffles. A fantastic band live, so well worth seeking them out if they are in your area”

Rosy Greer - Lancashire Blues Archive and Independent Reviewer

“Such was the intensity of the playing and the tight knit performance the whole band produced; you know why they are in such demand for their powerhouse performances”

Andy Davis – Blues at The Woodlands

“I can't remember a better debut gig from a new band that was so exciting than tonight's Darlington RnB Club gig with Big Wolf Band”  Mike Prendergast - Gasto Promotions

“This album has it all. It is a punchy, yet well mastered album that takes the listener on a journey through the bands ample capabilities and potentials, and is a must have for any serious collector or lover of the genre”
Nigel Thorne Presenter of ‘The ‘Original’ Blues Bar’


"Big Wolf Band's debut A Rebel's Story, quickly claimed a spot in my list for Top 20 Albums of 2017. From Heaven's Got the Blues to the beautifully haunting, If I Ever Loved Another Woman and all the great Blues packed in between. Big Wolf Band will be around a long time searing a path of fine Blues along the way"
