Gee, man, it's Elliott & the Untouchables, a South Carolina outfit that wraps us up with the tangy Voodoo Stew. Bandleader Elliott New is a pleasure to listen to whether he's picking out flighty single-note runs, slipping through a slide solo, or scratching out funky ninth chords under other soloists. He's a strong singer, too. The horns are super-fine. These guys aren't messing around.

Even having witnessed these lads perform with such stage presence in their home country, I did not expect them to overwhelm our festival audiences with such sheer playing power. We're looking forward to having Elliott and the Untouchables back again next year.

This is one hot, tight band!
Killer guitar tone!

One of the finest, most powerful and skilled bands I have heard in a long time.

Hooray, a blues band that doesn't imitate Stevie Ray or sound more like a rock band. It's all about the '40s and '50s with this super hot Columbia group. Old-school sounds with an emphasis on foot-tapping, rump-shaking jump blues. But don't be surprised if the group throws in a little swing and Chicago grit for good measure.

Elliott New is a fine songwriter, bringing forth clever originals.
All Music Guide

Dance-hall boogie  and retro-hipster tunes - solid originals. These guys let it flow just right. Elliott New's guitar lines recall Wes Montgomery and Albert Collins, his jubilant runs and sly fills really stand out... suave boogie finery.
Blues Revue Magazine

Classic old-school sax tone and a ripping trumpet. Every guitar lick played just right, oozing with Soul. Deep pocket drums and bass, brilliantly played. A definite must see band.
Real Blues Magazine

This veteran outfit makes all the right moves, navigating swing, jump blues and plain low-down and dirty with grace and chops.
Blues Access Magazine

An impressing horn section - good original roots music. Undoubtedly deserves attention. GREAT!

The Untouchables sound isnít your typical Southern Blues sound, unless you're talking Los Angeles. A very hot band.

Elliott and the Untouchables, in the style of William Clarke and Rod Piazza, smoked through a selection of their own numbers before leading an all-star jam that was still playing when I left at 5:40 am!
