Chris Cain

Tickets go on sale 10/23 at 10 AM.

Chris Cain’s jazz-tinged, blues soaked guitar and deep, warm vocals have the maturity and authenticity of bluesmen many years his senior. His expressive style is the result of a lifetime of study and the relentless pursuit of music mastery. Larry Nager (syndicated Scripts-Howard music critic) writes, “Nowadays most young blues players are Strat-wielding Stevie Ray Vaughan-a-bes. Not Chris Cain. With a voice that recalls B.B. King and a thick toned Gibson guitar sound reminiscent of Albert King, Cain is forging a unique style that has blues critics everywhere calling him the “future of the blues.” A true Big Room legend, Chris is guaranteed to rock the house and yes, the dance floor is open.

LA Weekly might have summed up the band’s special brand best with its 2013 Best Live Band award: “In a city like Los Angeles, home to musical stars in nearly every known genre, handing out the Best Live Band title is not easy. But the free-thinking local collective The Dustbowl Revival’s upbeat, old-school, All-American sonic safaris exemplify everything shows should be: hot, spontaneous, engaging and, best of all, a pleasure to hear.” Get your tickets early and be sure to wear your dancing shoes.
