Tony Masterantonio – 2017 August Blues Fest
August 19, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Live this coming Saturday at the Esplanade Hotel in Devonport. 6-9pm
The Esplanade welcomes singer/guitarist Tony Masterantonio to the 2017 August Blues Fest. Blues is the foundation of everything Masterantonio plays. He’s been fortunate enough to work with some great musicians over his career, from Eddie Levert (Ojays) to Steve Cropper, Mickey Thomas, Jim Belushi’s sacred Hearts, as well as members of Earth Wind & Fire and Tower Of Power to name a few.
Through these experiences he’s learned a lot about the roots of music and the nuances that make it great. His festival set with Neil Williamson (drums) and Chris Orange (bass) will see Tony paying tribute to his formative musical heroes Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robben Ford and Jim Campilongo, as well as stretching out on interpretations of his favourite soul and blues classics.
