Los Blancos rips through Blues, Soul, Rockin' Zydeco, Latin, Outlaw Country, Heavy-One Funk, Folk, and a bottomless bag of tricks that's always sure to get the party started. Over more than a decade they've rocked thousands of shows, and tens of thousands of miles, reveling in a genuine passion for what they do. A crew of troubadour craftsmen and kindred souls who have joined forces for the long haul, and for the love of music.
Whether he's beltin' out the blues, or melting the ladies with a little sweet soul music, Colin Aberdeen is an original. His honest voice and heartfelt guitars will wrap around you like your mama's arms and just make you feel good. And we mean Damn Good! Colin will bring down the house when he's slingin' that slide on the guitar, too, a true-blue artisan of the roots.
The keyboards are covered by the inimitable Mark Nanni. His versatility is unmatchable, his passion on the keys, undeniable. From solo gigs, to band leader, to first-call side man, Nanni has done it all. He is equally at home on piano, churnin' and burnin' Leslie organ, or any other board, even one bad-ass accordion! His jazz juice, intense vocals, and improvisational freedom add heapin' helpings of color and spice to the Los Blancos stew.
Rhythms are injected by drummer Mark Tiffault, & bassist Steven T. Winston. Tiffault spent time touring with John Lee Hooker, The Kingsnakes, and most recently with Handy Award winner Carey Bell. Road seasoned chops and spirited playing create the kind of backbeat rhythm that drive right through your soul. Filling out the blessed bottom is the big, fat, bass of Steven T. Winston. He has the experience and taste to know what fits, no matter what the style. Never content to just lay down the bootyshakin' bass, Steven T. is a great, burly, bear of a singer, too! These guys can go chooglin' on down like a 2 mile freight train, or float on a stone soul GROOVE.
Back porch harmony, a live intensity that can't be denied, and a massive, ever-evolving, melting pot of music, make Los Blancos a band that will stick with you for a long, long time.
