"On ' Menu and Sin," Mick Kidd and David blight again focus their qualities as songwriters and musicians of outstanding acoustic blues, that's sometimes unjustly receiving too little attention. Sin anyway!... "-Eric Sanders for

“Tight, disciplined & dynamic performance. Almost belies the fact it’s only 2 on stage, such is the power of delivery. It’s a mighty showcase of harmonica, flexible& versatile showcase of several different styles- nice mix in a varied, interesting set”- by David Sly-Adelaide I.B.C. judge, journalist at Adelaide Review.

"The Man is a fine guitarist & songwriter"- LUC MEERT- Rootsville, Belgium

“MICK KIDD is a solid acoustic guitar player & songwriter with feeling & charm. I enjoyed the discourse & stories he weaved, both lyrically & musically"- STEVE JONES- Crossroads Blues Society, Rockford, Illinois, U.S.A.

“Blight's atmospheric beds and subtle moody interjections were the perfect foil for Kidd's fast and furious picking and slide work.Both musicians have strong and authentic blues voices but they are poles apart. Kidd's vocal growl and Blight sustained pure notes complemented rather than competed. This was not what I was expecting, as the duo's sound filled the huge back room of the Gov with their skilled and assured musicianship. They presented intelligent, original songs with strong hooks that went well beyond the three chord trick that one might usually expect from blues songs.”- Ray Smith-

“Delivering some tasty original numbers interspersed with a few covers the guys showed us what masters they are on their particular instruments. Mick Kidd plays some tasty blues riffs on acoustic guitar with some extra special slide work thrown in for good measure. David Blight has played harmonica for Cold Chisel and he treated us to that sexy sound at The Gov, he’s a master of the harmonica and can really make it cry. The guys share the lead vocal roles and solo instrumental spots.”- Pete Wibberley-

Harmonica legend (and Christmas Pageant float designer) Dave Blight, known mostly for his work with Cold Chisel, performed with Mick Kidd with a kick ass blues set that included Robert Leroy Johnson and Steve Winwood covers. Both masters of their craft, they let loose with a wall of thunderous blues that set the place on fire. Posted by Darren Hassan - Glamadelaide
