Fantastic Negrito

Fantastic Negrito is the incarnation of a musician who is reborn playing songs from a long hard life channeled through black roots music. The slide guitar, drums and piano are urgent, desperate and edgy. Fantastic Negrito is the story of a man who struggled to “make it”, who “got it” and who lost it all. For anyone who ever felt like it was over yet hoped it wasn’t, this is your music; blues harnessed, forged in realness. These are singular songs by a true musician who writes and produces. They are his fuel as he embarks on the third comeback of his life. 

Opener: The Get Right Band

Combining catchy, clever, honest songwriting with musical expertise and fearless improvisation, The Get Right Band’s live show promises to move your head, heart and hips. The band was featured on NPR’s World Café and has played shows with Galactic, Rusted Root and Turkuaz.

Lots of local beers on tap, wine, soda and water are all available for purchase. Plus plenty of local food vendors to choose from!
