About the Event
We have a spectacular After Show for you on Saturday April 9th, immediately following the Tampa Bay Blues festival.
The Saturday After Shows feature the amazing Eric Gales at 10:30 and 2020 Blues Band of the Year winner, Nick Moss Band at midnight .
As both an African-American left-handed guitarist of extraordinary ability and an expressive vocalist, it is natural for people to compare Eric to Hendrix. But Eric has developed a unique hybrid blues/rock sound that also draws upon influences as diverse as Albert King and Frank Gambale. A unique amalgam of styles, Eric Gales stands head and shoulders among other guitarists in his genre.
- “One of the best if not the best guitarist in the world today.” -Joe Bonamassa (@JBONAMASSA) Oct 28, 2013
- ● “How Eric Gales isn’t the hugest name in rock guitar is a total mystery” -Dave Navarro (@DaveNavarro) Jan 27, 2016
- ● "And I remember on this last tour me and Myles were on the bus looking up clips and we ran into some Eric Gales clips and we were just like, 'This guy could be the best player on Earth.” - Mark Tremonti
- ● “Although sometimes compared with Eric Johnson, Gales’ rock style is usually much edgier, though ironically, he has an amazing vocabulary with jazz chord changes when playing clean.” - JP HOLESWORTH “Guitar World Magazine” Feb 27, 2012
