Mr. Day & The Nights is a rock combo with its very own style that never fails to create an atmosphere whatever the venue. Their original blues/roots-based rock music is exciting, lyrical, danceable, and humorous. Influences range from Bessie Smith and Robert Johnson to James Brown and Barry White. Frontman Mr Day’s voice is a middle-ground between Lou Reed, Bob Dylan and somewhat of a Chris Isaak. He delivers razor-sharp and straightforward guitar-playing.

Mr. Day & The Nights: een modern rock combo met een specifieke eigen stijl, diep geworteld in de blues, goed voor de ambiance in bars, pubs, clubs en concertzaal. Mr. Day staat voor originele roots-gebaseerde rock-muziek, opwindend, lyrisch, dansbaar en grappig. Invloeden gaan van Bessie Smith en Robert Johnson naar James Brown en Barry White. Een stem die het midden houdt tussen Bob Dylan en Lou Reed, met een vleugje Chris Isaak. Recht-toe-recht-aan effectief gitaarwerk.

Mr. Day & The Nights est une formation rock au style très particulier. Cette formation baignée de blues a déjà fait ces preuves dans nombres de salles de concerts et clubs. Mr. Day c'est du roots-rock, excitant, lyrique, dansant, et drôle. Ils sont influencés par Bessie Smith et Robert Johnson ainsi que James Brown et Barry White. La voix de Mr Day, leader de la formation se trouve entre celles de Bob Dylan et Lou Reed, avec parfois un trait de Chris Isaak. Il nous livre aussi un jeu de guitare efficace et direct.
