JB's welcomes 'The Hustle' to Limetree Festival in 2012
"They took us all to a level just this side of the edge of the universe. The café went berserk"
"To capture the spirit and diversity of the band you must see their dynamic live performance"
"…the driving and soulful sound of The Hustle's live performances feature many of their own songs. Heavy brass lines, red hot boogie-woogie piano and lyrical guitar, backed by a canny rhythm section are The Hustle's trademarks"
"The Hustle played their socks off entertaining the packed house at BJ's...Jake Jackson, soft and loud…magnificent. Bill Roberts was just blistering - sensational. Mike Atherton has a great voice, echoes of Van Morrison, and his guitar playing is wonderful"
"Sit back while Mike lays down his angular lyrics then pow!, take that guitar right between the eyes, mm there's even a touch of Zoot Horn Rollo in there… Singer and guitarist Mike Atherton has just the right vocal inflections and his guitar playing exactly the required amount of rage, subtlety and skill"
"Vivid bass and drums and choppy Hammond, a guitarist blasting into an angular solo, a distinctive singer delivering some straight ahead R' n' B lyrics, another guitar break, Hammond simmering away - what an opener! There's a discernible jazz inclination in the music … with the organ player sounding like he's been listening to some Jimmy Smith, some Booker T Jones, some Brian Auger."
Michael Atherton - Vocals / Guitar
