Livin A Live – Track 3: “She’s Tuff”

she's tuff

“She’s Tuff” has been a personal Riccardo’s favourite since he listened to the tune played by The Fabulous Thunderbirds in their “Portfolio” greatest hits album.

That laugh at the end of the verse caught him and made him think “How cool do you have to be, to write a song with some laughing in it?” and after some research he found out it was a Jerry “Boogie” McCain’s song.

A laid back groove, but still biting and hitting you, with wonderful lyrics about the best woman you can meet (after all she’s so tough to stop a World War) is Blues as it gets and on stage it happens often that the band streches the song to get the audience in or kicking some dynamics on this song (check Riccardo Grosso Blues Band live video concert in Warsaw to see this happening…).

 

So here we are with the third song of the “Livin A-Live” album: “She’s Tough” as the original title spells or “She’s Tuff” you like it better…

 

 

 

If you missed “Shake Your Hips” you can find it here.

If you missed “Double Trouble” you can find it here.

 

 

All was going pretty good, until…

…covid 19 stroke us.

 

We all been hit hard by this pandemic virus they introduced us to, in the last weeks. It’s been under the radar, nobody expected it and no one could predict it would be hit us so hard as human race in general.

 

While we are all together on this boat over this deep and rough sea, we are among the lucky ones who were not infected until the time I’m writing.

 

Anyway is with sadness in our heart that we have to communicate some bad news about our calendar and some not so bad.

 

Right now we are announcing that 6th Austrian Bluesharp Festival, where we were expected as headliner of the final show on April 18th 2020 has been cancelled due to Austrian (and Italian) regulation to fight this Covid-19 emergency. And while the virus waves is hitting Europe we can say our show at Home Rock Bar in Italy for April 9th is cancelled as well and our show in Novigrad, Croatia, for April 17th at 9-pub has been post-poned in August.

 

You’d better check the calendar page for news and update, so you can re-plan your moves and come to say hello at the nearest confirmed show…stay tuned because we have the feeling we’ll have to tell you more in the near future…

2020 is a hot year for shows!
