The Nick Moss Band featuring Dennis Gruenling
Chicago guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Nick Moss is a bona fide bluesman down to his soul, a 30-year veteran of the city’s take-no-prisoners blues scene. Moss paid his dues gigging in Chicago’s rough and tumble West and South side blues clubs under the tutelage of some of the city’s greatest blues luminaries.

“Nick Moss is at the top of the blues world…. ambitious and intense… He can play traditional blues with the best.” Blues Revue

New Jersey’s Dennis Gruenling is considered among today’s best blues harmonica players. His high-energy, full-throttle playing has earned him comparisons to the late James Cotton.

Now, recording together for the first time, The Nick Moss Band featuring Dennis Gruenling makes their Alligator Records debut with The High Cost of Low Living, a dream come true for both musicians. Their blistering label debut is a tour de force of the classic Chicago blues ensemble sound that world class guitarist/vocalist Moss and master harmonicist/vocalist Gruenling know, live and love.

"Moss’ muscular, electric energy combines jaw dropping guitar, gruff, soulful vocals and impassioned songwriting. Gruenling is a contemporary harmonica master... impressive, genuine and fresh sounding.” Living Blues

"Nick’s a thrilling guitar player, a gritty, honest singer, and his band is tough as nails. Dennis is a blues harmonica master and a terrific showman. This is a partnership of two world class talents in one band. These are artists that any fan of the blues has got to love.” Bruce Iglauer, Alligator Records President
