Bennett Wales & the Relief were recently featured in Jamwich’s review of the 2018 Mountain Music Festival held at Ace Adventure Resort in Minden, West Virginia. Charles “Bones” Frank wrote an excellent article covering the entire weekend’s experience.
Here’s what Bones had to say about the boys:
“I arose to make the short walk down to the Strange Stage, located centrally amidst the campgrounds, where I was able to catch a band I had just missed the night before- Bennett Wales & The Relief. Let me say, what a relief it was that I heard about this group via Virginia friends and I’m mighty glad I had my catchers mitt on, ready to catch the slaw they slung. They played a refreshing style of blues melded rock & roll, laced with a kind of Muscle Shoals vibe all while combining melody and funk. Wales’ voice is not to be tangled with, and they were the perfect wake up for a large looming day of heavy jams.“
