Hot on the heels of Alastair Greene’s critically acclaimed 2017 release Dream Train comes hispowerful new album, Live From The 805. Recorded in front of a sold-out hometown crowd inSanta Barbara, California, this album celebrates 20 years of Greene's Blues Rock power trio
with 20 tracks, including original songs drawn from all 5 of his studio records as well as a few choice covers. Alastair Greene has been hailed as one of the best Blues Rock guitarists of his generation with his band drawing comparisons to Gov’t Mule, ZZ Top, and Cream. Live From
The 805 will appeal to fans of Rockin’ Blues, Southern Rock, Jam Bands, and more.

“Live From The 805 is a milestone live celebration of twenty years of rocking the blues for Alastair Greene and his cohorts. It's also another installment in his re-commitment to his own music after stepping down from seven years of adding a blues tinge to the Alan Parsons Live Project, continuing the story told in his most recent studio outing, Dream Train. While Alastair and the band have strong, obvious and impressive roots in the rock world, the twenty songs here, mostly bluesified updates and reprises from Alastair's accumulated discography, reflect Alastair's love and affinity for the blues and its offshoots with equal vigor and authority. Shadows of Albert Collins, Albert King, Howlin' Wolf and many other blues icons run through the music. Alastair's mastery of traditional blues tunings, slide, string bending and grooves are as much a part of the foundation as the hard driving, rocking energy. As numerous greats have shown, blues and rock don't always have to be "either/or." Blues has always reflected the other musics of its time. Happily for we listeners, Alastair is a master of rocking blues (or is it the other way around?), and it will be joyous finding out over the coming decades where the blend takes him -- and us.”
— Dick Shurman - Blues producer and historian

“Fronting a power blues-rock trio, guitarist Alastair Greene breathes in sulfuric fumes and exhales blazing fire”
— Down Beat Magazine

“Imagine a meld of Cream, Johnny Winter, North Mississippi Allstars, Jimi Hendrix, and Santana and you will have some idea of the music laid
down by the Alastair Greene Band. Surely one of the finest Blues-Rock bands on the scene today.”
— Blues In Britain

“A major talent in the Blues Rock category.”
— Blues Music Magazine

“Alastair is the equal of many and better than most.”
— Blues Matters UK
