We are very proud to welcome back Curtis Salgado, who is celebrating his recent trifecta win at the Blues Music awards!
Curtis won awards for Blues Album of the Year for his most recent release, Soul Shot, as well as Male Artist of the Year. And most importantly, he won the coveted BB King Entertainer of the Year Award!
Curtis has recorded eight critically acclaimed solo albums and he tours internationally with his own band. He has also toured as vocalist with the Robert Cray Band, Roomful of Blues and Santana. Salgado is also credited with being the inspiration for John Belushi's character of Joliet Jake in The Blues Brothers.
Salgado's latest CD, Soul Shot, on Alligator Records, is being hailed as his greatest album to date and continues to receive rave reviews and radio airplay worldwide. Blues Revue calls Soul Shot, "A joyous celebration of life. Soul Shot is this millennium's finest soul blues record...deep, commanding, and essential."
Judging by his accolades at the BMA’s, this praise is certainly justified!
