An Evening Of Live Blues With FELIX CABRERA + ROBERT ROSS BAND
Friday, August 29, 2014 from 8:00 PM to 11:30 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Felix Cabrera's music is steeped in the heavy, gut-wrenching blues of the Chicago bluesmen of the '50s and '60s, but it retains a contemporary social conscience, as Cabrera brings his audience through time to the present with his original material. At times you can feel him channeling Paul Butterfield, one of his musical heroes, and then with the next tune he draws heavily on his Cuban roots, weaving together the melodies and Latin percussion of his childhood. Cabrera's blues harp solos are nothing short of explosive, and his voice is soulful.
Robert Ross is an award winning singer, songwriter, guitarist, slide guitarist, and harmonica player who is known for jazz, blues, soul, rock 'n' roll, and other roots music.
