David Vest, Roadhouse Revelation

David Vest is a fabulous foot?stompin’, house?rockin’ boogie?woogie piano player who can just as effortlessly play beautiful jazz and country blues ballads. Now a resident of Canada, Vest was born in Alabama in 1943, and grew up in Birmingham, not far from Tuxedo Junction. He played his first paying gig in 1957, and by the time he opened for Roy Orbison on New Year’s Day 1962, he was a seasoned veteran of Gulf Coast roadhouses and honky tonks. These are the authentic, Southern--?bred experiences that have inspired his new album Roadhouse Revelation…and he has the stories to prove it. His nicely weathered, unpretentious voice perfectly complements his playing. On Roadhouse Revelation Vest is backed by a top--?notch band featuring the great Teddy Leonard (Fathead) on guitar, Gary Kendall (Downchild) on bass and Mike Fitzpatrick (Downchild), on drums. “Blues Piano Perfection.” Cascade Blues Association
