The Blues Project
Musical trailblazers, The Blues Project will perform at the Latchis Theatre on Saturday, Oct. 29, at 7:30 p.m.
Arguably the greatest unsung 1960s American rock band, the Blues Project band combined Danny Kalb on lead guitar, Steve Katz on rhythm guitar and harmonica, Roy Blumenfeld on drums, Andy Kulberg on bass and flute, and Al Kooper on organ.
Innovative trailblazers, the Blues Project blended together folk-rock, soul, rock ‘n’ roll, blues to jazz to produce their own sound. Moving from Greenwich Village to the West Coast, they headlined at the legendary Monterey International Pop Festival along with Otis Redding, The Byrds, and Jimi Hendrix.
Kooper and Katz then formed Blood, Sweat & Tears, with Kulberg and Blumenfeld remaining to release one more album, Planned Obsolescence, before renaming the group Seatrain.
Original members Katz and Blumenfeld lead a powerful lineup consisting of Chris Morrison on lead guitar, Scott Petito on bass, and Ken Clark on keyboards and vocals. The band is touring to celebrate the release of its first studio album in 50 years: Evolution.
Tickets are $49 for front orchestra, $39 general, and are available at https://app.arts-people.com/index.php?ticketing=larts or latchis.com
