Dynamic guitarist/vocalist Maxx Cabello, Jr. at FNL
Friday Night Live, Cloverdale’s free outdoor summer concert series presented by the Cloverdale Arts Alliance, continues at 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 23, with the rhythm and blues sounds of Maxx Cabello, Jr.
This amazing young guitarist is also a soulful vocalist and prolific songwriter. Hailing from the streets of the San Francisco Bay area, he is turning the heads and bending the ears of even the most jaded veteran musicians and music aficionados.
Straight out of the South Bay, this quiet-spoken young man turns into a powerful and captivating artist when he begins to play the guitar. His music is reminiscent of the most renowned guitarists of our time. In his work are the inspirations of Jimi Hendrix and Carlos Santana, but Maxx definitely adds his own artistry, showing only influences by the guitar legends.
His hard driving method of playing is both accomplished and energetic. His singing is clear and strong as he expresses his music with sensitivity and honesty.
The American music flame will never go out as long as young artists such as Maxx Cabello, Jr. continue to take the torch and keep it burning.
In the words of John Lee Hooker, “Oh yeah, that boy can really play!”
