John Hiatt and Genz Benz Hit the Road
In support of his new album 'Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns' (Tues Aug 2) the legendary John Hiatt will embark on a 37 date tour, and once again, his Genz Benz amps will be accompanying.
A recent visit to John's rehearsals in Nashville revealed an artist at the top of his game, obviously still enjoying what he does for a living. It's no wonder, the guy gets to perform John Hiatt songs all night backed up by arguably the most musical and soulful 3 piece band on the planet.
Also evident was the typically low profile John Hiatt backline that included a Shen Stereo Deluxe 200 acoustic amp, 2 Shen Pro LT acoustic amps and a Black Pearl 30-310 class 'A' amp which is particularly suited to the tastefully amazing Doug Lancio. Hiatt made special mention that the BP30-310 was "all over the new album" and how incredibly well his Genz Benz amps have served him over the years.<
