If you like blues, vintage R&B and good old rock & roll, don’t miss this show at CyCs!
The Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise will make a stop in Vallarta October 16. On board is a stellar line up of Blues and R&B talent including my friend Ron Thompson from Oakland, California. I toured in the US Midwest with Ron each year from1989 to 1992, then again July to August 2006, and May to June this year.
When Ron was booked for the cruise he asked me to set up a show for us in Vallarta. The show will be at Cuates y Cuetes, on the Los Muertos Beach, in Old Town, Puerto Vallarta, 4pm to 6pm(plus) Tuesday October 16th.
In addition to Ron and myself there will be a drummer from the cruise and we may be joined by other mutual friends from the performers on the cruise. Ron is a multi instrumentalist playing guitar, piano & harmonica.
Please take a look at Ron’s website http://www.rtblues.com. Ron is one of the finest artists on the US blues circuit with a vast knowledge of the music. He is also a dynamic performer who always has the audience on their feet!
There’s also a video of us and more music and video on Ron’s website.
“Look, I got problems just like everybody else. I try to forget my problems when I play my music, and I try to create for the audience a way for them to forget their problems too. I try to get the people into the spirit. The blues is a spiritual thing. When I’m on stage I go into a trance.”
