Though rockin’ blues is not known for its refinement, there is plenty of that in Gomes -- whether it comes in terms of his witty yet anthemic writing, or his soulful delivery ( and despite his ‘I am a Rockstar' persona). More than anything else, a live Gomes performance (as we know from both his sold-out shows here in the past) are memorable even if you are not a rockin’ blues lover. For more on Gomes, please go to: www,anthonygomes.com.
For a taste of the incredible range of music in the 12 records that Gomes (who is Canadian) has produced over the years – from straight up blues soul and rock, to country and gospel – please go to: https://www.anthonygomes.com/music.
TBS has been presenting world class live blues for close to 20 years even as we find ourselves at a crossroads now. We present Anthony twice over the weekend not only to ensure that it is financially viable for him to play in the Maritimes, but also to see if doing so is viable for us; and we would greatly appreciate your continued support in coming out for the shows and in spreading the word.
“Hendrix on crank guitar phrasing... all the soul of Otis Redding and the swagger of Steven Tyler. Anthony joyfully blends the distinction between blues and rock.”
Blues Rock Review
“Gomes’ authentic voice and the formidable guitar chops place him in the forefront of modern blues.”
Blues Music Magazine
Passion with a musical intelligence that places him way ahead of the other hellions igniting the Fender fretboard.”
