Coco Montoya

Taught by the “Master of the Telecaster” Albert Collins, Coco Montoya mixes his forceful, melodic guitar playing and passionate vocals with memorable songs, offering a hard-edged sound and style all his own. He earned his status as a master guitarist and soul-powered vocalist through the years, after five years as a sideman with Collins (first as a drummer) and then 10 years with John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, before launching his own dynamic solo career in 1993. Guitar Player says Montoya plays “stunning, powerhouse blues with a searing tone, emotional soloing and energetic, unforced vocals.”

Opener:

John “Greyhound” Maxwell “just stuns with his virtuosity in playing old-time blues with some authentic ragtime thrown in,” said a writer for the Golden Gate Blues Society. “Maxwell’s dexterous finger work, marvelous slide and heartfelt, deep-baritone vocals prove him to be a major talent on the Bay Area roots scene.”
