Tinsley Ellis – Chrome Lounge
February 8, 2018 @ 6:00 pm$15.00
“Feral blues guitar…non-stop gigging has sharpened his six-string to a razor’s edge…his eloquence dazzles…he achieves pyrotechnics that rival early Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton.” –Rolling Stone
“Ellis unleashes a torrent of dazzling musicianship pitched between the exhilarating volatility of rock and roll and the passion of urban blues.” –Los Angeles Times
Blues-rock guitar wizard, vocalist and songwriter Tinsley Ellis will celebrate the release of his powerful new CD, WINNING HAND, with a live performance on Thursday, February 8, 2018 at the Chrome Lounge in Omaha. Since his Alligator debut 30 years ago, Tinsley Ellis has become a bonafide worldwide guitar hero. The Chicago Sun-Times says, “It’s hard to overstate the raw power of his music.” Armed with his signature molten licks, melodic riffs and rousing, intense solos, Ellis, as his legions of fans will attest, is among the blues world’s best loved, hardest working and most well-traveled statesmen.
