Add to Calendar 30-01-2012 30-01-2012 15 Chris Duarte & Tinsley Ellis CHRIS DUARTE - Chris Duarte's guitar playing is steeped in the Texas blues, jazz, and rock of his native San Antonio. Dropping out of school at 16, he moved to Austin to pursue a career in music, where he eventually met John Jordan and founded his power trio, the Chris Duarte Group. He signed with Silvertone Records in 1994 and released his debut, Texas Sugar/Strat Magik, the same year. The album won him significant attention: he was named Best New Talent in Guitar Magazine's 1995 Readers' Poll and finished fourth in the magazine's Best Blues Guitarist category, behind guitar legends Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, and B.B. King. Since that explosive arrival on the music scene, Duarte has continued to release exceptional albums, including Tailspin Headwhack (1997), Love is Greater than Me (2000), Romp (2003), Blue Velocity (2007), Vantage Point (2008), 396 (2009), and Infinite Energy (2010). His latest album, Blues in the Afterburner, came out in 2011 and proves yet again that Durante is a bona fide master of the Texas blues guitar. This man has been known to play until his fingers bleed - get ready to have your face rocked off! TINSLEY ELLIS - Southern blues-rocker Tinsley Ellis may speak no evil, but he sings and plays with the conviction of, as Billboard wrote, "...a man possessed." Over the course of more than 11 albums and literally thousands of live performances, Ellis easily ranks as one of today's most electrifying blues-rock guitarists and vocalists. He attacks his music with rock power and blues feeling, in the same tradition as his deep South musical heroes Duane Allman and Freddie King and his old friends Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes. Atlanta Magazine declared Ellis "the most significant blues artist to emerge from Atlanta since Blind Willie McTell." Since first hitting the national scene with his Alligator Records debut Georgia Blue in 1988, Ellis has toured nonstop and continued to release one critically acclaimed album after another. Tinsley's hometown paper, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, calls his music "a potent, amazing trip through electric blues-rock." Following up on the success of his 2007 album Moment of Truth, Ellis's latest album, Speak No Evil, is the most guitar-driven album of his career, featuring his most brutally honest and hard-hitting original songs to date. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=102285 B.B.

TINSLEY ELLIS -

Southern blues-rocker Tinsley Ellis may speak no evil, but he sings and plays with the conviction of, as Billboard wrote, "...a man possessed."

He attacks his music with rock power and blues feeling, in the same tradition as his deep South musical heroes Duane Allman and Freddie King and his old friends Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes. Atlanta Magazine declared Ellis "the most significant blues artist to emerge from Atlanta since Blind Willie McTell."
