Carlos del Junco appearing at Thrasher
Harmonica maestro, CARLOS DEL JUNCO, along with his band, will be performing on the evening of Saturday, October 16, at at the historic Thrasher Opera House in
With a name that loosely translates to “of the reeds,” it seems as though it was destiny for Carlos del Junco to become a musician. However, rather than lending his talent to a saxophone, a clarinet or perhaps another reed instrument, del Junco chose the harmonica to showcase his talent. In fact, his unique sound has been compared to that of a reed instrument.
In concert, Carlos transcends the boundaries of blues and jazz and anything in between. His command of the instrument is absolute. An eclectic palette of musical styles cover a wide spectrum from blues, Latin, Tex-Mex, country, New Orleans funk, swing, traditional or contemporary jazz, to the occasional African, hip hop and ska-flavored rhythms. Carlos fuses his respect for tradition with an innovative, adventurous and modern approach, playing with all the nuances and subtleties of a classical virtuoso to the edgier sounds of a blues rocker.
Carlos is touring in support of the critically acclaimed award-winning BIG BOY cd, and his current CD, up and at 'em, produced by Grammy winner Joe Chicarrelli. This latest offering matches Carlos' musical dexterity to a stellar lineup of world-class talent.
