Dewolff are psychedelic power trio from Limburg, The Netherlands, Deep South which formed in 2007 and brings us a fusion groove with a killer beat that just lets you lose yourself and feel the energy that these boys bring. The boys have given us Strange Fruits & Undiscovered Plants 2009, Orchards / Lupine 2011, Dewolff 2012, Grand Southern Electric 2014, Roux-Ga-Roux 2016, Thrust 2018, Tascam Tapes 2020, Wolffpack 2021, Double Cream 2022 and their latest blockbuster Love, Death & In Between. I was lucky enough to catch these boys in a support slot last year and fast-forwarding to 2024 we find ourselves in the splendid Voodoo Rooms in Auld Reekie, the place is filling up nicely as the boys bounce on stage and bellow out ‘This is something special is it not which brings a loud cheer. the boys again thank us for coming before they launch into –
