the UK plays so straight ahead that it's hard not to call his Rock n Roll the Blues'.

'Great riffing, always complimenting the songs and great songwriting telling compelling

stories, make for an extraordinary CD' .... Hairy Larry, Delta Boogie, USA



'Their second appearance here is a bit of a coup. Very rarely are we able to get a Top

band as part of a European tour. DRIVE feature the amazing blues guitar talents of

Pete Mitchell, a seasoned pro with many years of touring experience. The band are

travelling thousands of miles playing at hundreds of venues. Covering artists as Stevie

Ray Vaughan, ZZ Top and JJ Cale' .....NOT TO BE MISSED!

superb trio' .... Burnley Blues Festival 2009


'It was another great night, started off witha real toe tapping fest of R&B anthems from

Pete Mitchell's DRIVE interspersed with many of Petes own songs. We managed to

capture these 'seasoned veterans' on a leg of their current UK tour, and it was well

worth it' ............... Otis Mack (promoter) Tubbys Blues Club, Cheltenham 2008
