The Saarland has already shown his musical abilities at many renowned festivals, such as the Jazz & Blues Days Verden (GER), Blues Express (LU), International Seydel Harmonica Festival (GER) or the well-known Blues' n Jazz Rally in Luxembourg. The man at the Blues Harp is very much in demand internationally. Whether as a solo act or with a band, "Blind Dog Mayer" knows how to inspire on stage! As a support act he also opened concerts with bands like Klaus "Major" Heuser (ex BAP), headliner EZIO (UK), Dudley Taft (USA) or Walter Trout (USA).

>> ... a dedicated line between blues soul and fingertips. Blind Dog Mayer then has two of them, one for the harp and one that ends at his vocal cords.
The harmonica player pulls his wealth of ideas from his musical sleeve as a trump card and it is he who impresses with his small instrument and his voice. With his energetic, roughened voice, Blind Dog Mayer puts you in a good mood and the final point of this disc is very successful... <<
>>… After the band introduction, head singer Meyer unpacks the harmonica. The instrument has surely been lying around in a barrel of whiskey for a whole day, that's how great the harp sounds and if there is anything like a reference list for harmonica sounds, then this post definitely belongs on this list! <<
>> "Live, with timeless blues of the greats! ..." <<
>> ... and it was remarkable how this man masters his harp. <<
(Miko Vogelgesang - Sound Studio Sound Alchemist)
>> ... With the singer Blind Dog Mayer, the musicians from Saarland have a real shouter in their ranks who knows how to deal with the audience ... <<
>> ... After the band performance, senior singer Meyer unpacks the harmonica. The instrument certainly has a whole day lying around in a barrel of whiskey, so horny sounds the harp and if there should be something like a reference list for harmonica sounds, then this post is definitely in this list! <<
