Legendary blues musician and songwriter, Taj Mahal, can adeptly play the guitar, banjo, piano, harmonica, and many other instruments, all while singing with an extraordinary vocal range from gritty to smooth. With 10 GRAMMY® Award nominations and three GRAMMY® Award wins, Taj Mahal has reshaped and defined the blues genre for almost 60 years, incorporating and fusing blues, rock, R&B, pop, and jazz styles and influences from around the world.
Los Lobos, the band from East L.A., are Louie Perez (Drums, Guitars, Percussion, Vocals), Steve Berlin (Saxophone, Percussion, Flute, Midsax, Harmonica, Melodica), Cesar Rosas (Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin), Conrad Lozano (Bass, Guitarron, Vocals), David Hidalgo (Vocals, Guitar, Accordion, Percussion, Bass, Keyboards, Melodica, Drums, Violin, Banjo).
In 2023, Los Lobos celebrates its 50th anniversary as a band, a rare and impressive feat, as the band continues its great legacy. Los Lobos has sold millions of records, won prestigious awards, and made fans around the world. But, perhaps its most lasting impact will be how well its music embodies the idea of America as a cultural melting pot. In it, styles like son jarocho, norteño, Tejano, folk, country, doo-wop, soul, R&B, rock ’n’ roll and punk all come together to create a new sound that’s greater than the sum of its parts.
After 25 years, 12 albums, four GRAMMY® Award nominations, and sold out shows everywhere, North Mississippi Allstars open up their world once again on their thirteenth album, Set Sail [New West Records], welcoming other family (by blood and by the road) into the fold. As legend has it, Luther and Cody Dickinson started the band in 1996 as a loose collective of like-minded second-generation musicians who shared a local repertoire and regional style. Over the years, the lineup shifted by design, and each subsequent record offered up a different combination of collaborators. This time around, they mined the talents of Jesse Williams on bass and Lamar Williams, JR. on vocals.
