Bob Castell Blanch @ Uva Trattoria | Bob Castell-Blanch has worked as a professional guitarist for over twenty-five years throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. The electric and acoustic guitar along with a computerized soundtrack is at the heart of the music he performs. He uses the latest technologies to record and mix these sound tracks to a computer format, which he plays back through a small sound system during performances. This results in giving the live performance a quality rivaling anything played on the "smooth jazz" radio channels today.

His style of music ranges from light jazz to standard jazz to R&B by artists such as Antonio Carlos Jobim, George Benson, Carlos Santana, the Rippingtons, Sting, Toni Braxton, The Yellow Jackets, Whitney Houston, Miles Davis, Earth Wind & Fire, plus some of his own original material. He successfully blends his electric and acoustic guitars to create an atmosphere that is pleasing to audiences ranging from a cocktail environment and extending to that of a concert setting. Bob Castell-Blanch has recorded and performed with such artist as Narada Michael Walden, Sister Sledge, Stacy Lattisaw, Pete Escovedo, Sheila E., Carl Carlton, Ammi Stewart, Wayne Wallace, The PHDS and many others. He currently is actively involved in production work and song writing in his recording studio at his home as well as performing live throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

Robert Hunter *3 Shows!* @ City Winery | In 1967, Hunter joined the band, chiefly as a lyricist, soon penning the classic "Dark Star." Hunter's songs and influence were so strong that over the years Jerry Garcia would refer to Hunter as the member of the band who never appeared on stage.

The songwriting collaboration between Garcia and Hunter thrived through the end of the 1960s and into the next decade, with such memorable songs as "Friend of the Devil," "Truckin'" (which contains the line that many consider emblematic of the band itself: "What a long, strange trip it's been"), "Ripple" and "Sugar Magnolia," all in 1970. He would also be responsible for the lyrics in the Dead's "comeback" song, 1987's "Touch of Grey," which would be the band's only commercial hit.

After the Dead broke up in 1995, Hunter continued to write for other musicians, including former member of the band Mickey Hart, Bob Dylan, and Bruce Hornsby, while also writing songs as a solo artist. As a co-writer of the majority of Grateful dead songs, when the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994, Hunter was inducted as well.

David M'Ore @ Downtown Joe's | A mystical guitar man from a bygone era, David M’ore arrived to L.A in the early 90’s committed to alter the musical scene. Club goers and musicians begin to talk about the new kid with the virtuoso aggressive guitar style, raspy vocals, and his high energy fueled Blues-Rock tunes.

Now with his second solo album “ From The Other Side of The River ” David M’ore managed to take his guitar pyrotechnics to a different level of instrumental majesty. Performing on a custom made Strat carefully modified to his specifications, M’ore demonstrates his acclaimed six string technique on both originals and cover tunes. “I love to pay tribute to those who influenced me.” “But at the same time I like to be true to who I am,” says M’ore, whose influences include Hendrix, Blackmore, Satriani, J. Winter, Gary Moore, Albert King, and other guitar monsters.

From the beginning, traditional Blues and British Neoclassical Hard Rock played a very important role in the evolution of David M’ore style.

Born in Argentina, he picked up an old guitar that his godfather bought him for his eighth birthday and immediately began to explore vintage records. “The aggressive sound of the guitar drove me emotionally insane,” David says.” “I still listen to those old records from Johnny Winter”. That’s where it all began.

A born troubadour, Mr. M’ore moved frequently around the world as well as in the U.S.A before finally settling in Hollywood in 1990. After the separation of his band “Blind Hole” and refusing to accept the change of the grunge movement, he escaped to Sacramento in 1993 where he obtained a music award. Back then David shared the stage with local Blues players including the legendary Johnny Guitar Knox and Arbess Williams.

Today you can hear his chops in the San Francisco area with his new powerful trio offering an explosive blues riffs attack. If you are looking for Passion, Blood, and Fire you must check this Hot Powerblues Trio!!!
