“Pat Travers is one of the best blues rock musicians alongside greats like Rory Gallagher and Gary Moore.”
— Londa R. Marks
Blues Rock Guitarist Pat Travers performed at a small concert venue in Decatur, GA, the outskirts of Atlanta, on a Tuesday night, as if performing to a crowd of many thousands. When you experience Pat Travers prepare to be transported to his world of music as if nothing else around you exists for an hour and half. You feel his passion during the show and for days after. He attacks guitar impeccably with every ounce of his soul. His vocals are seductive and sound is well crafted. You become part of his message.
Most of the favorite Pat Travers songs were played including: Crash And Burn, Stevie, Statesboro Blues. The show started with hammering, hard blues rockin’ energy, not words describing what they were going to do, but pure power drew you in and didn’t dissipate, didn’t let go, didn’t stop. The end of the performance arrived too soon.
Not only does Pat Travers' passion connect with the audience but the band is on the same plane complimenting each other with some of the best players around executing his music, reading each other flawlessly. Pat’s professionalism is outstanding and he still has that one thing that adds to a musician’s success which is hunger. That is difficult to say about musicians who have been around since the 70’s, which is why Pat Travers is one of the best blues rock musicians alongside greats like Rory Gallagher and Gary Moore.
“Great review of a great musician!” –Bob Hewitt Producer Researcher FenderFilms Chester United Kingdom Media Production

“Londa, nice review. I have seen Travers on a number of times and he and his band never disappoints. One of the greats that you just don't hear enough about these days. Take care and hope all is well.” –Kevin Lahue, Owner, Chef and Culinary Educator with Healing Cuisine and Three Sisters, Greater Los Angeles Area
"I was LUCKY ENOUGH to get to open for him twice in my life and you are right no matter how big or small the venue they are among the best in the World!!!" –Donnie Vaughn, Owner at Friends & Neighbors
“Hello Londa. Thank you for joining my professional network. I admire your work experience and talent. I enjoyed your review of the Pat Traverse band. I played with the band in 1984 lead guitarist all over south Florida and the Fort Lauderdale strip briefly. I Met Pat Traverse because we were neighbors in Coral springs Florida at that time. I still shred a mean “Snortin Whiskey.” But my favorite song I played with Pat was cream cover of Born under a bad sign.”

“Missin You” hits hard!
This song is ‘In Your Face Rebel Rock!’ “Missin’ You,” is melodic, provocative and well structured; speaking of hits, “Missin’ You” is a hit!
Albert J. Lariviere is a genuinely talented artist with unique, seductive vocals. Guitarist Sam Smith’s dimensional rock style is intuitive to Albert’s emotions and compliments him with a sultry tone. The bass and drums are solid foundation for their arsenal of hit songs and combined, the band executes heart and passion with pure rebel style and radical perfection.
