Don’t miss the final show of Huatulco’s 2019 Blues on the Beach season. As always, all profits of this show go to benefit Un Nuevo Amanecer.
Our headliner this show will be Huatulco’s favorite band leader, the always amazing David Rotundo. Toronto blues harpist David Rotundo has developed his own language of the blues. Rotundo is a songwriter who easily pulls inspiration from the world around him.
Joining David at this Valentines’ day event will be the great Lee Oskar. Lee Oskar has been described as “the harmonica whiz”, and considered among the best rock-blues-soul harmonica players. He is renowned for his iconic role as a founding member and lead harmonica player of the pioneering funk/jazz band War that composed and recorded such hits as “Low Rider”, “Spill the Wine,” “Cisco Kid,” “The World is a Ghetto,” “Slippin’ into Darkness,” “Why Can’t We Be Friends,” and many more chart-topping songs from 1969-1993. Three well regarded albums released between 1976 and 1981 brought critical and popular acclaim, including being voted No. 1 Instrumental Artist of the Year for 1976 in Billboard, Cashbox and Record World.
Oskar and his original band mates from that era perform as the LowRider Band. Lee performs around the world with outstanding musicians including our own David Rotundo who is a Lee Oskar Harmonicas Featured Artist.
