Keith Dunn & Balta Bordoy Quartet
Keith Dunn: vocals & harp,
Balta Bordoy: guitar,
Sergi Escriu: guitar,
Jake Klamburg: drums.
American Blues legend Keith Dunn is well-known for his singing and harmonica playing in the Chicago Blues style and for his work with a long list of Blues stars like Jimmy Rogers, Joe Louis Walker, Roomful Of Blues and Stevie Ray Vaughan to name a few.
Keith and the talented roots/black music guitar player, Balta Bordoy, first worked together in 2010. For more than 25 years of career Balta has been studying and absorbing the sounds of musicians like Jimmy Reed, Eddie Taylor and Robert Jr. Lockwood to name a few. After playing a series of concerts together in Mallorca and Barcelona, they recorded their first album which led to further tours in Spain and Ukraine during 2017 and 2018. From these experiences with different line-ups the idea for their current four-piece band was born.
These two leaders are perfectly backed by some exceptional musicians: guitar player Sergi Escriu (The Midnight Rockets) with his Texan style, influenced by musicians like Wayne Bennett and Anson Funderburgh. Drummer Jake Klamburg is inspired by the grooves and back-beat of Fred Below and Earl Palmer and the improvisation of John Coltrane’s drummer, Elvin Jones.
The result is a solid Blues band that combines elements of Jump Blues, Boogie and classical electric Blues, into a unique sound featuring the soulful voice and harp of Keith Dunn and the biting and soulful guitar lines of Balta Bordoy.
Revolution Band (Valencia)
La Revolution Band was born as a part of a dance comunity in Valencia, Spain. An unforgettable trip, the pleasure of the music and the passion for the dance were the ingredients that move them to play together. This band was created by dancers for dancers, and what they most like is to play for those who feel music and dance as a whole thing.
They mix styles that goes from Delta Blues, Chicago or West Coast Blues to the "jazzy" or funk, always doing their particular "fusion" with roots rythms, comingfrom african music, flamenco or the purest latin music
