Carlos del Junco & The Blues Mongrels: Saturday, January 25

Carlos del Junco & The Blues Mongrels: Saturday, January 25, Doors: 7:30pm. Show: 8:00. Tickets: $25 door; $20 advance. Carlos del Junco is a harmonica virtuoso who has won numerous national and international awards for his unique playing style.  Simultaneously sophisticated and raw, his playing blurs the boundaries between blues and jazz (ergo, “The Blues Mongrels”). Caught between the blues and jazz world, Carlos and band deliver a seamless fusion of everything from swing to Latin, second line New Orleans grooves to swampy folk roots melodies, and even “world music”.
Carlos’ new CD Hang On features Eric St. Laurent and Henry Heillig on guitar and bass respectively, some back-up vocals from Jimmy Bowskill, with Kevin Breit playing on mandolin and 12 sting resonator guitar on a couple of songs. You can listen to some sound bytes of the new disc here:
