Chris Bergson and Ellis Hooks bring their "gut-busting, horn-bedecked NY blues" (MOJO) to Bar Lunatico on February 1st. They'll be performing music from their latest CD, Bitter Midnight which MOJO has ranked among their Top 3 Blues Album of 2017. New York Blues Hall of Famer Chris Bergson has established himself as "one of the most inventive songwriters in modern blues music" (All Music Guide). Bergsonhas performed and/or shared the stage with Hubert Sumlin, Levon Helm, B.B. King, Norah Jones, John Hammond, Etta James, and Bettye LaVette, to name just a few. All Music Guide writes of soul singer Ellis Hooks, who has performed with Stax legends Steve Cropper and Little Milton: "Until the arrival of Ellis Hooks on the 21st century blues and soul scenes with his now-signature meld of R&B, blues and Southern gospel, it seemed that the great stories surrounding these musics had already been told and passed into antiquity...Not so...Hooks is the true continuum in the celebrated Southern traditions of soul, blues, and gospel; his voice, while reminiscent of some of the greats, is nonetheless his own, and his phrasing is a trademark."
