- I wanted to make more people aware of these shows coming up in the next couple of weeks. They are all so good and so different. Blues, Bluegrass, Funk-Jazz Boogaloo, Reggae, and jazz guitar fuzion jam. Check out these musicians who in my opinion are some of the best at what they do.

See you there.ScottJames Cotton w/ Albert Cummings, Delta Sonics & John-Alex MasonThursday December 1stWhen James Cotton left the ranks of the Muddy Waters Blues Band in 1966, the harmonica virtuoso had little trouble assembling an all star cast of his own. The result was the James Cotton Blues Band an outfit that has since achieved worldwide recognition as one of the tightest and most influential blues outfits ever assembled. If you like the blues, do not miss this night!!! We are very proud to have blues great James Cotton at Cervantes along with Albert Cummings, the Delta Sonics & John-Alex Mason.

The band has been called the most original reggae band in the U.S., a moniker it takes very seriously.

Tix are $12.Steve Kimock Band feat. Robert Walter, Reid Matheis, & Rodney HolmesSaturday December 10thThe Steve Kimock Band defies simple categorization. Its players are renowned artists with diverse musical influences and a shared love of stretching sonic boundaries. Its music is a kaleidoscope of innovative compositions and dazzling improvisations that range from the rush of exploratory fusion and funk, to the roar of psychedelic rock, to the whisper of a ballad so haunting and sweet that audiences fall silent under its spell. Its live performances are incendiary marathons of musical creation and on-stage chemistry that are unlike anything else in music today. Steve Kimock is one of todays most talented guitarists and composers, a master musician known for his uncanny ability to balance passion and power with soaring grace. Relix magazine recently dubbed him "The Guitar Monk" for his relentless pursuit of Zen and the art of guitar. This lineup should be one of the best ever. Tix are $20.
