We are so excited to have Carlos & his band perform for us! — This is a show you don’t want to miss!
“To say Carlos del Junco plays the harmonica is like saying ‘Jimi Hendrix plays guitar’. He blows the blues harp through a prism — suddenly it seems he’s holding every colour in the musical rainbow right there in his hands. Simultaneously sophisticated & raw, his playing blurs the boundaries between blues and jazz hence the name for his band “The Blues Mongrels”. The emphasis is on blues, but they are not afraid to merrily traipse off in other directions delivering a seamless fusion of New Orleans second line grooves, swing, Latin, hip-hop or ska melodies, to swampy roots rock.”
Get ready to throw out all you thought you knew about the harmonica. The Blues Mongrels deliver a no-holds-barred display of fun and melodic virtuosity.
