Famed Blues-Rocker Coco Montoya Celebrates New Album

Mystic Theater

Event Link

Saturday January 13, 2024

8:30 pm

Award-winning, internationally renowned blues-rock guitarist, singer and songwriter Coco Montoya will celebrate the release of his sixth Alligator Records album (and first release in four years), Writing On The Wall, with a live performance. Mentored by the “Master of the Telecaster,” Albert Collins, and schooled by a decade on the road with John Mayall, Montoya has a hard-edged sound and style all his own.

He decided to bring his road-tested band—noted keyboardist and songwriter Jeff Paris (Keb’ Mo’, Bill Withers), bassist Nathan Brown, and drummer Rena Beavers—into the studio with him. Between the camaraderie of the long-time bandmates and the sheer talent of all involved, the results have left Coco, in his words, “over the moon.” Upon its September 1, 2023 release, Writing On The Wall debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart.
