Slapback Jack (a.k.a. Nick Potgieter) and Bad Voodoo (a.k.a. Tony Bell) played together some 30 years ago…not a beat has been lost in all that time! They have introduced a subtle style of humor to their music, by excluding the "Bad Times…Sad Times" sometimes associated with the Blues, and adding a lighter-side tone to this much respected genre.

Many Blues styles are covered in their Gruff Side Of The Blues album, including Electric and Acoustic influences from Texas all the way down to the Mississippi Delta and the Louisiana swamps. You'll hear a mix of Harmonica's, Acoustic and Electric Basses…and the ever present "Low-Down, Gruff and Gritty", smoke stained, whiskey soaked voice of Slapback Jack.

"Are you gruff-enuff to handle this?"
