Anthony Gomes@Hugh’s Room-Wed.,May 22nd,2019

By Wayne Baggs Right from the first note, Anthony Gomes delivered straight ahead, unapologetic hard-rocking blues. His latest release, Peace, Love and Loud Guitars is exactly what Gomes and band: Jeremy Howard on drums and Sean Holland on bass, fed us. With loud guitar being at the forefront. Don’t get me wrong. Gomes has the […]
