BIG GILSON FROM RIO, BRAZIL is on tour in the for two weeks in November. We are lucky to have secured him for night in the Blues Bar on November 9th. Big Gilson will be be accompanied by UK backing band including members of Larry Miller‘s band and ex Sassafras.
Big Gilson has honed his chops gigging for many years in Brazil, Argentina, Europe and USA. He opened for Steve Winwood on his Brazilian tour, Johnny Rivers (70.000 people audience), and twice to the master B.B. King. While touring America, and gigging at such clubs as Florida’s Bamboo Room, New York’s Blue Note, and all over Chi-town, the band knocked out such blues gods as Corey Harries, Duke Robillard, Lonnie Brooks, Magic Slim, Saffire, Walter “Wolfman” Washington and Buddy Guy, who extended the Boy from Brazil an open invitation to play his Legends Club anytime.
“…When I see such a young man so far from America, playing the blues so well, I feel happy and proud that my mission in this life is done” B.B. King
“…His slide playing is disturbingly virtuosic…” – Tim Schuller – MET MUSIC – Texas
“…This CD confirms Big Gilson as the best Brazilian blues guitarist” Jornal do Brasil –
“…Excellent guitar solos full of feelings and powerful slide playing. He’s vibrato is super cool…” Guitar Player Magazine – Brazil
