Eric Gales at The Porch
Tuesday, October 19 @ 10:00 pm - 12:00 am$30
The Porch Southern Fare & Juke Joint welcomes blue-rock guitarist Eric Gales for his first Medford appearance. In the guitar-crazed ’80s, Gales emerged as a teenage blues-rock phenom, and by the early ’90s Guitar World magazine had named him Best New Talent. Since then he’s released acclaimed albums, performed with Carlos Santana at Woodstock ’94 and been part of the Experience Hendrix Tour. As both an African-American left-handed guitarist of extraordinary ability and an expressive vocalist, it is natural for people to compare Gales to Jimi Hendrix. But Gales has developed a unique hybrid blues/rock sound that also draws upon influences as diverse as Albert King and Frank Gambale.
General admission tickets are $30 through The Porch’s website/Eventbrite.
