Mike Zito & The Wheel + Albert Castiglia (USA)
September 26, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm£13 - £15
Born and raised in St. Louis, MO he grew up listening to Van Halen and Led Zeppelin and it wasn’t until later he became interested in the great blues men who were from and around St. Louis. On his 2011 Blues Music Award nominated CD (Best Blues Rock) Delta Groove release “Greyhound” he tells the rest of the story of how things could have been much different. In 2010 Zito and Neville won the Blues Music award for “Song of the Year” for “Pearl River” the title track to Zito’s 2009 release.
For the last two years the singer and guitarist toured as part of the Royal Southern Brotherhood through Europe, America and Australia, released two records with them and a solo record with his band The Wheel.
In The Wheel Mike found his dream band: with Scot Sutherland on bass, Rob Lee on drums, Jimmy Carpenter on saxophone and Lewis Stephens on keys. The band that worked with Mike already on his solo record Gone To Texas will now be on tour with him and Samantha Fish.
New York born, Florida based, Albert Castiglia has the stinging tone of Albert Collins, the soulful vocals of Van Morrison & a great new CD ‘Big Dog’ on Ruf.
2 years ago he toured as part of the Blues Caravan, and now he’s back in his own right, with a Chicago influenced, raw rocking blues style, delivered with real charisma!
