« a new group formed and established in Europe «
with Anita Fabiani (piano), Eric Leglise (bass) et Eric Petznick (drums)
After a decade dedicated to the Blues, releasing 2 albums and various EPs, playing in various festivals and important venues in more than 15 countries, Federico Verteramo, originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, moved to France in 2022 forming this new group with a luxury line-up.
The group’s research focuses on post-war electric blues with great influence from artists such as BB King, Muddy Waters, Otis Rush, Lazy Lester or T Bone Walker to name a few.
`Federico Verteramo, and Anita Fabiani, come from Argentina, and are a nice surprise of this festival. This band tours Europe, with Eric Petzick on drums, and Eric Leglise on bass. Their register revolves around Chicago blues and Boogie, to the delight of spectators. After several groups apart from traditional blues, it feels good to find its fundamentals. Federico is a good singer, and a guitarist full of feeling, and when he leaves the field open to Anita, his dexterity on the ivory keys leaves us speechless.’September 2022 – Blues Alive Magazine, France

- `Federico Verteramo returned last night and it was as usual a good slap in the face of Chicago blues, as this artist puts at the service of this unique style not only his clear voice, a guitar playing and harmonies rarely seen here but also an impeccable orchestral direction with a perfectly flexible rhythm section (Eric Leglise and Eric Petznick) and finally a new arrival, Anita Fabiani, queen of the organ and the boogie piano. We were dancing, of course….´ April 2022 Blues-Sphere, Liège, Belgique LINK
