    In Austin for SXSW and got to see Mr. Volkaert live for the first time. He was at the Evangeline Cafe with Floyd Domino. Totally exceeded expectations. Just Amazing and fun. The Evangeline is also worth it, good food and staff.

    Yep...Redd puts on a great show. Kind of like a two-for-one because it's a comedy act too.

    crazy

    It was great to hear him live, not many videos out there that do him justice and CDs are good but live is more better; his tone is amazing, his technique is near flawless. Just awesome. I know I am gushing but there are only a handful of people on the planet that can do what he does and there is only one Redd Volkaert and I got to see him live in a very small venue, so yeah, I am a little fan boy right now.

    I am sure that was an experience, and he is WAY up on my list of must see live. Who was on steel?

    Everyone is talking about his guitar playing - and he obviously is one of the finest players out there. But don't forget about his singing voice ... I just love that!

    I'm relatively new to Redd, first saw him about 5 years ago after a friends recommendation. All I can say is, I saw him the night after I saw Jeff Beck, I told Redd, I liked him better. It was also the first time I saw someone blowup an amp on stage.

    He either needs to come back to Chicago or I need to get down to Austin. I've only had the pleasure of seeing him twice. Once solo, once with Heybale.

    Redd Volkaert wins the Austin Music Award for best guitar player!!

    Congrats on this award as well Redd and well deserved too I'm sure. Just keep it goin' is all. The opportunity to hear someone like you play in person is rare event. I hope I'm that fortunate some day soon.

    Glad you got to enjoy Redd and Evangeline, I've seen him play there a few times.
