Cuban Blues - CD Launch!
Come join the party at a Toronto landmark venue the Monarch Tavern and celebrate the launch of my new CD recorded in Cuba.
Yuca con Mojo - Cuban Blues CD
Yuca is a Cuban root vegetable that is cooked with a mojo (sauce) for a tasty dish. We went to Cuba and cooked up a new CD using Cuban roots and bluesy sauce!
CD's will be for sale so bring your cash!
The outstanding lineup of musicians includes:
Robert Davis: an acoustic blues guitarist and harmonica player, on the new CD he handles the vocals and harmonica. Robert's new CD was inspired by his deep connections to both the blues and to Cuba.

Fraser is one of the finest young guitar players in town and he keeps very busy playing in a number of blues, roots and R&B groups such as Bad Luck Woman and her Misfortunes and leading his own group, The Fraser Melvin Band.
