Vanessa is a masterful musician – bringing fiery energy and impassioned performances through her soulful saxophone playing and her powerful voice. She’s singled herself out as an artist to watch in future, winning the 2019 Blues Music Award Winner for “Instrumentalist of the year – Horn” as well as being nominated in other categories. If you’re a fan of blues, rock, or soul music, this isn’t one you’re going to want to miss!

To classify Chris Duarte simply as a Blues Man is an understatement. In his own words, “rockin’ blues” or ”punk blues” describes him best. Chris Duarte’s music is ever changing. In many interviews, he has said “Music must evolve.” His own early offerings often become magical journeys into changing tempo and jazzy interludes before returning to their core. With such a vast catalog of recordings, there are no two shows alike. Every set list is different, and each song may be offered distinctly, based on the feel of a show and the audience. For those reasons, loyal fans often return to a Chris Duarte show again and again, and always walk away awed and satisfied to have witnessed such a legendary, but humble guitarist.
