BLUES-ROCK MASTER COCO MONTOYA BRINGS HARD TRUTH TO LINCOLN!
“Stratocaster-fueled, fierce slash-and-burn guitar work…dramatic, smoldering Southern soul-rooted intensity…Montoya’s voice is as expressive as his guitar.”
“Montoya is a show-stopper…Heartfelt singing and merciless guitar with a wicked icy burn…he swings like a jazz man and stings like the Iceman, Albert Collins. He is one of the truly gifted blues artists of his generation.” –Living Blues
Legendary blues-rock guitarist and vocalist Coco Montoya, currently celebrating his return to Alligator Records and the release of his new CD, HARD TRUTH, will perform at The Zoo Bar in Lincoln on Friday, September 22, 2017. Taught by the “Master of the Telecaster,” Albert Collins, and schooled by a decade on the road with John Mayall, Montoya — who cut three successful CDs for Alligator between 2000 and 2007 — has a hard-edged sound and style all his own. He delivers instantly memorable songs, powered by his forceful, melodic guitar playing and passionate vocals.
