Gerd Gorke

For over 20 years Gerd is present as a singer and harmonica-player in the German Blues-scene. During this time he played on more than 1500 concerts all over Germany.

He also performed with his band >"Hootin’ the Blues", the "Blues Mafia" and the "Speedos" in 9 different european countries. He had many concerts with American Blues musicians like Angela Brown, Louisiana Red, Dave Myers, Sam Myers and over 10 years of intensive performances with the US-singer Jeanne Carroll enrich his vita.

His distinctive voice as well as his virtuosic harmonica playing (that is one of the best all over Germany according to the "German Blues Circle") he inspires his audience.

He plays the blues, swing and boogie from the 40th-50th. Until today there are many CDs available where Gerd plays together with his bands or as a guest on many other recordings.

Gerd's newest Band is named >Mr. Blues jr . and is a "scalable band" - if you can afford "only" a Duo or if you need a whole band - always featuring Gerd Gorke on harmonica and vocals!

Gerd and his band won the German Blues Challenge in 2009 and were semi-finalists at the following International Blues Challenge.

There are two CDs now available in our webshop: >"Hootin' the Blues - Tree Mountain Hop (2008)" - an album with traditional Blues music: Stomps and Hollers from the Westfalian Countryside - played on the SEYDEL 1847!

Newer CDs recorded together with Gerd's excellent duo partner Michael van Merwyk on accoustic guitar are available in the SEYDEL eShop: "Delta Boys- Front porch stories" (2010) and "Rough and Easy" (2014), see below!
