Wed – Little G Weevil and His Band
Multi-award-winning Little G Weevil is no stranger to the city of Birmingham. Originally from Hungary, Little G took the plunge and hopped on a plane and immigrated to the United States in 2004 to learn and experience the Blues first hand. He landed in the Magic City and worked in a local hotel before moving to Memphis, TN. He washed dishes, cleaned rooms as he tried to establish himself on the scene. Finally he got his break with a steady gig on Beale Street in Memphis, and his reputation started to grow.
Today Weevil is a highly esteemed member of the worldwide blues community. He won the Blues Foundation`s International Blues Challenge, and has been nominated for a Blues Music Award and a Blues Blast Music Award. He has released five well-received albums and toured across the globe.
During his travels he has shared the stage with legends such as the Neville Brothers, Johnny Winter, Anson Funderburgh, Sam Myers, Lee Oskar, Bob Margolin, Ian Siegal, Denise Lasalle, Big Jack Johnson, Lonnie Shields, Willie King and many more.
His new band album, SOMETHING POPPIN` was released in November, 2017 through Vizztone Label Group and has reached the worldwide contemporary blues radio airplay chart Top 20. This is a groundbreaking work that shatters preconceived notions of style and genre. This album has everything that blues music had influence on – Rock n Roll, Soul, Funk, R&B even Hip Hop and Rap elements mixed together with the essence of what they all come from: Blues.
