Between his white-hot guitar playing and his soulful, emotional vocals, Coco Montoya has talent to burn. In a career that spans almost four decades, he's gone from drumming for blues icon Albert Collins to holding the lead guitar spot in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers to leading his own band and touring worldwide. Montoya is revered for his ability to move from subtly melodic guitar playing to slash-and-burn pyrotechnics. Equally forceful are his deep, soul-baring vocals.
With his 19th album, Miles to Go, Colin James is getting back to the blues. He is known as one of Canada’s best blues musicians, it wasn’t until 2016’s Blue Highways that James found himself on a blues chart: the album spent 10 weeks at No. 1 on the Roots Music Report’s Blues Chart.
Admiral Theatre Foundation 'Save The Mermaids' Campaign
Attending this concert will help save and preserve the Admiral Theatre’s iconic hand-painted murals of mermaids and undersea life. The Admiral Theatre is a 77-year-old concrete building which is under constant assault by salty sea air and wet weather. Despite constant maintenance, leaks and water damage have slowly seeped into our interior auditorium walls over the last 22 years since the murals were painted. In order to preserve the murals for future generations, the Admiral Theatre Foundation is raising $323,000 in 2019-2020 to paint and seal the theatre’s exterior, retouch the murals, and install a new photographic historical display in our mezzanine lobby. Your 100% tax-deductible contribution will help us ‘Save The Mermaids’ and preserve an important part of Kitsap’s arts and cultural heritage.
