Band Spotlight - Mercedes Moore Band
On this March 24, keep your agenda free for the 6th Annual San Felipe Blues & Arts Fiesta. The festival combines the best in today’s blues, rock ‘n’ roll and rock, and fine arts. “Changing Lives Through Music and Art” is not a mere slogan because the event will make a difference for both event attendees of this musical event and locals long after the event has ended.
The concert will take place right on the beach, at the El Cortez Hotel. If you want to see a show featuring 9 bands and as many as 40 artists, purchase the ticket in advance for $20, or at the door for $25. Go to http://blues2012.eventbrite.com/ for an online purchase. In addition to the music concert, the public will have access to around 40 booths presenting excellent pieces of fine art craftsmanship.
The San Felipe BC Lions Club (www.sanfelipebclionsclub.org) and the Baja Good Life Club (www.baja4life.com) worked together with around 150 volunteers to make this festival possible. Their effort and dedication will allow blues lovers to see the incredible Mercedes Moore Band.
Nothing can describe the Mercedes Moore Band better than the laudatory remark of the San Diego Reader: "This is one hot singer! Blues Diva Mercedes Moore is burning down the blues clubs is Southern California!" Indeed, the popularity of the band made up of Scot Smart (guitar) John Simons (bass) Kurt Kalker (drums) and Mercedes Moore (vocals) will easily cross the border from San Diego to Baja California.
The music of the Mercedes Moore Band is reminiscent of the 50s and the 60s, and it is based on a harmonious combination of soul, blues and R ‘n’ B. A large share of the band’s popularity can be put down to the sultry and strong voice of the lead singer. The music of the Mercedes Moore Band is like a breath of air for the true music lover.
In case you were not able to see the band performing live during the San Diego Blues Festival, the 6th Annual San Felipe Blues & Arts Fiesta is a chance that should not be missed. Come to San Felipe on March 24 to get into the rhythm of blues music on a beautiful Baja beach, on the Sea of Cortez.
