(All Music Guide) creating his own blend of blues, roots and soul. Bergson has performed and/or shared the stage with Hubert Sumlin, Levon Helm, B.B. King. Norah Jones, John Hammond, Etta James and Bettye LaVette, to name just a few.

"One of the most talented bands playing today...From blazing rock to funk to soul to Delta blues and all that's in between." Elmore Magazine

"Chris Bergson plays the kind of guitar you can build a house on...It's B.B. meets Steve Copper meets John Scofield." ROLL Magazine

"With 'BItter Midnight', guitarist Chris Bergson simmers like a stew." John W. Barry, Poughkeepsie Journal

"As we've come to expect from Bergson, Bitter Midnight is full of tasty, intuitive guitar work and passionate vocals but besides that, the album's also a triumph for his abilities as a composer... An absolute must for fans of blues, soul and southern rock."
