Los Blancos music spans style and time, and defies classification. They''ve been compared to Little Feat, The Neville Brothers, The Radiators, The Allman Brothers, The Band, and countless other breeders of American Music. On any given night they rip through Blues, Memphis Soul, rockin'' Zydeco, Santana-esque Latin rock, Outlaw Country, NYC-stylee funk, and a dozen other styles. A band born from decades of dues in the hands of musicians that play/write from the heart. Sure, they pepper their original shows with a healthy shake of down-home Roots, but this band doesn''t just cross the line between styles, they soak it in tequila and TORCH IT!!!
Enter Colin Aberdeen, whose versatile vocal style warms you up from the inside out. Whether he''s beltin'' out the blues, or melting the ladies with a little soul music, Aberdeen is an original. His confident, emotion-filled vocals wrap around you like your mama''s arms and make you feel good. And we mean Damn good! Colin will bring down the house when he''s slingin'' that slide on the guitar, too! A true-blue artisan of the roots.
The keyboard angle is covered by the inimitable Mark Nanni. His versatility is unmatchable, his passion on the keys, undeniable. From solo gigs, to band leader, to first-call side man, Nanni has done it all. Mark is equally at home on piano, churnin'' and burnin'' Leslie organ, or any other board, including one bad-ass accordion! His jazz sensibility, intense vocal style, and improvisational freedom add a heapin'' helping of color and spice to the Los Blancos stew.
Rounding out the roster is the rock-solid rhythm section of veteran drummer Garnet Grimm and bassist/vocalist Steven T. Winston. Grimm is a grooving monster of a player with a world-class shuffle. He brings a drive and focus that keep it tight, while still leaving plenty of room for the big fat bass of Steven T. Winston.
Having been a collaborator and side man on countless gigs around the region, Steven T. has the experience and taste to know what fits, no matter what the style. A great, burly, bear of a singer, too, he''s also been known to step up to the front and belt out a couple. These guys lay it down so deep in the pocket you can''t help but feel your feet movin'' to the beat! They chug like a freight train, or float through an effortless soul groove. Mix a bit of sweet harmony in with all the meaty material, and this perennially award-winning band is a sure-fire FEAST for the ears.
Best known for their mind-blowing live shows, LOS BLANCOS is ready to move, move, MOVE!!!
Don''t take our word for it, here''s what the critics say!
-----"***** 5 out of 5 Stars...the band plays hot blues, funk, and rock riffs...and plays Latin-flavored blues-rock with a flair that would make Santana proud. Aberdeen''s vocals are from the gut and full of emotion and passion...and the rhythm section cranks along with a powerful beat." Philip H. Farber, The Daily Freeman-NY
-----"Los Blancos'' eclectic mix of material is right up this city''s alley. It''s a blues band to be sure, but there are also moments of Latin Jazz, Tex-Mex, Soul, and Rhythm and Blues. You know these guys are on the right track!" The Gambit Weekly-New Orleans, LA
-----"Los Blancos delivers one of the most diverse sets I have ever heard. Blues, R&B, Latin, Rock, and a touch of Jazz blending effortlessly... Los Blancos'' range of style is nothing short of phenomenal. Their last performance at Franco''s rated among the greatest shows I''ve ever seen. No doubt about it...these guys are GOOD!" Billtown Blue Notes-PA
-----"Not only one of the best debut discs to ever come out of Syracuse, it''s one of the best debut discs to ever come out!...the most impressive debut this reviewer has heard, or expects to hear for some time. I am reminded of my first impression of the band Little Feat...this disc redefines the term ''breakout recording''."
Mike "Red Dog" Downes, Blues Connection Magazine
-----"This is one of the best CDs I''ve heard in the last decade. The material is gorgeous and full of soul. These great musicians can''t be denied." Ronnie Earl
-----"The very solid four are at the top of their game...Torrid but still fun stuff...(Los Blancos) set a high bar for headliner Gov''t Mule to clear". Mark Bialzak, The Post Standard-NY
-----"If Los Blancos is any indication of what''s happening up there, they for sure got it going on! Los Blancos is a stripped-down four-piece combo that packs a big punch-and a hell of a good time-into one small package." Vintage Guitar Magazine
