  1. Hey. I just wanted to thank you for playing our recordings (the Elgins) on your show today. I have been listening in for a while now. I enjoy it every time, some favorites and a lot of "new" stuff too. Keep it up!

    thanks again, Fredrik Zahl Marken

  2. Hi there, thank you so much! you guys are so authentic it's crazy. Jeff gave me Back to Chicago a couple of weeks ago and it's been on repeat in my car (and i drive a lot haha). i actually wasn't keen on modern blues until i heard you all. thanks for listening and letting me know! :)

  3. yeah, I know what you mean. but there is a few interesting blues acts out there. you can add me on facebook if you want so I can keep you up to date on the Elgins and maybe talk some music.

  4. i don't have a facebook lol i know that's weird. i check into the elgins facebook page - does the band have an official email?

  5. you can contact band leader Mumea through-
