about this event
Guy Tortora is a gifted song-writer, musician and social commentator. Born & raised in Pasadena, California, he is now resident in London. His superb band, which includes Janos Bajtala on keyboards, Carlos Tancredi on Bass, and Pete Hedley* on drums, provided the `House Band’ for Paul Jones & Friends charity gig at CAC in 2008, with special guests Eric Clapton, Eric Bibb, Pee-Wee Ellis, and Jon Cleary. (* drummer for this gig will be Ed Spevock)
Guy has six original and highly regarded albums to his credit, each reflecting his own take on modern life. His very latest offering, `Anywhere but here’ was released earlier this year.
Great original songs, soulfully delivered with masterclass musicianship; think Bob Dylan meets JJ Cale!!
