    Blues

    Describing Daniel Castro as a blues artist doesn’t begin to tell the whole story. A highly accomplished guitarist and singer/songwriter with a strong musical point of view grounded in the very best blues traditions is more like it. Combine those talents with original blues-based material and you begin to understand Daniel’s strengths as an artist. Well-known for being a dynamic performer who “leaves it all on the stage” night after night, Daniel brings crowds to their feet with his blistering solos, soulful singing, and tight arrangements. Daniel has always played with seasoned musicians, but with his newest incarnation, the Daniel Castro Band raises the bar and is truly a force to be reckoned with.

    A Daniel Castro Band performance is soulful, polished, and intense as the group shifts from one scintillating groove to the next. Daniel covers lead vocals and rhythm and lead guitar with amazing dexterity. Musical chemistry is obvious from the first note the band plays and it never lets up. The group’s strong arrangements, including three-part harmonies, and its use of dynamics and feel, propel each song forward and leave audiences in awe of a trio that sounds so full. “We play big,” says Perper. Others agree. “I can’t believe how full the band sounds. I close my eyes and am sure you’re a five or six piece band--unbelievable!” says Bernard Butcher, producer of the Blue Wing Blues Festival.

    Daniel's powerhouse trio consists of bassist Johnny Yu and drummer David Perper, whose intuitive and explosive rhythm section is able to anticipate each others moves and support Daniel's music as it deserves.

    Americana
    Multi-media Retrospective

    Maria Muldaur's "Way Past Midnight" show, a 50 year, multimedia retrospective. It is a delightfully entertaining show that was 
    extremely well received all around the U.S. and Canada. It has been 40 years since Midnight at the Oasis was riding the top 
    of the pop charts, and Maria had the brilliant idea to put together a show where she chronicles her 50-year musical journey through 
    American Roots Music, to the Oasis and Beyond. Maria and her band perform her iconic hits, including Midnight at the Oasis, I'm a 
    Woman, etc., as well as many oft-requested "fan faves' from the 40 albums she has recorded in the past 40 years. She treats her 
    audience to previously unseen photographs and videos, (A PowerPoint presentation) and shares fascinating, often humorous personal 
    stories from every stage of her 50-year career - from her early days in the '60's with The Jim Kweskin Jug Band, through her years of 
    "pop stardom", and on to her continuing exploration of the many forms of American Roots Music -- Blues, Bluesiana, Jazz and Gospel. 

    Don't miss this one woman, all star show, right here in Pacifica!
