Legendary Blues Promotions, Kootenay Co-op Radio and the Royal are proud to present Carlos Del Junco!
To say he plays the harmonica is like saying “Jimi Hendrix plays guitar”. He blows the blues harp through a prism — suddenly it seems he’s holding every color in the musical rainbow right there in his hands. Simultaneously sophisticated and raw, his playing blurs the boundaries between blues and jazz (hence the name for his band “The Blues Mongrels”). The emphasis is on blues, but Carlos and his band are not afraid to merrily traipse off in other directions delivering a seamless fusion of New Orleans second line grooves, swing, Latin, hip-hop or ska melodies, to swampy roots rock.
This will be the first night of the inaugural Legendary Blues Series at The Royal. You can buy a ticket package for $45 that includes a ticket to Carlos Del Junco, Colin Linden & David Vest. Advance tickets available at Royal Espresso, Eddy Music, Urban Legends, Kootenay Co-op Radio and www.liveattheroyal.com for $15 or $20 at the door.
