Description

Don’t miss the final show of Huatulco’s 2019 Blues on the Beach season. As always, all profits of this show go to benefit Un Nuevo Amanecer. http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Un-Nuevo-Amanecer-en-pro-del-discapacitado-AC/185242528169754

Our headliner this show will be Huatulco’s favorite band leader, the always amazing David Rotundo. Toronto blues harpist David Rotundo has developed his own language of the blues. Rotundo is a songwriter who easily pulls inspiration from the world around him. Proof of his impact shows in the fact that he has been nominated for a Maple Blues Award for 11 consecutive years. Winner of the Galaxy of the Rising Stars Award, New Artist of the Year Award and Harmonica Player of the Year Award. In 1997, Rotundo led a band called The Blue Canadians alongside such notables as Peter Schmidt, Shane Scott, Julian Fauth and Doc MacLean. In 2000, he was asked to join the legendary Jack de Keyzer Band and he was thrilled by the opportunity to play with “one of the best Canadian guitarists”. Aside from de Keyzer, Rotundo has performed with Lee Oskar, Ronnie Hawkins, ex- Muddy Waters drummer Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, Madagascar Slim, Mel Brown, Jeff Healey, Johnny Winter, Edgar Winter, Finis Tasby, James Cotton, Magic Slim and The Tear Drops, Elvis Costello, Shakura S’Aida, members of Downchild among many others. If you have been to his shows, he needs no further introduction. If you have not, be prepared to be blown away by his incredible music and his ability to get the crowd into party mode! When you see David Rotundo live you’ll know instantly that he lives for what he does.

Joining David at this Valentines’ day event will be the great Lee Oskar. Lee Oskar has been described as "a virtuoso, "the harmonica whiz", "legendary," a master of "musical wizardry," and considered among the best Rock-Blues-Soul harmonica players. He is renowned for his iconic role as a founding member and lead harmonica player of the pioneering funk/jazz band that composed and recorded such hits as “Low Rider”, “Spill the Wine,” “Cisco Kid,” “The World is a Ghetto,” “Slippin’ into Darkness,” “Why Can’t Be Friends,” and many more chart-topping songs from 1969-1993. Three well regarded albums released between 1976 and 1981 (and recently rereleased on CD) brought critical and popular acclaim, including being voted No. 1 Instrumental Artist of the Year for 1976 in Billboard, Cashbox and Record World. His compositions have been featured on movie sound tracks and television commercials. He has been the recipient of many Gold and Platinum recordings and honored with special ASCAP Writing Awards. Oskar and his original band mates from that era perform as the LowRider Band. Lee performs around the world with outstanding musicians including our own David Rotundo who is a Lee Oskar Harmonicas Featured Artist.
