Gregor Hilden Allstars Band

by Sam Kelly

I have just returned from a really good one-week tour with the GREGOR HILDEN ALLSTARS BAND in Germany.   Gregor was introduced to me by Axel Lanz, proprietor of Herzog Ernst in Celle in 2012.  So with Gregor’s reputation as one of Germany’s most gifted guitarists, Paul Jobson’s musical talent, Spy Austin’s bass and vocal harmonies, the powerful vocals of Miss Rowena Poole and myself on the pots and pans, the Gregor Hilden Allstars Band hit the road!!!  We have only been back home for a week and have already had two festival appearances confirmed for later this year.  I love my job!!!!
