Roberto Morbioli4–7 p.m.

Roberto Morbioli (All the way from Italy!)

ROB MO (Roberto Morbioli) plays the Blues.

He can breathe fire from his axe like a young Clapton or Stevie Ray. Crowded, noisy bars hush a bit when he steps up. Folks look around to see who this is making such a holy wail.

His personality and unique playing style shine through all his interpretations; so much that, even while recalling the styles of blues greats such as Freddy King, Albert King, B.B. King, Albert Collins, T-Bone Walker, you see and hear that every note is coming straight from the heart. It’s so infectious that you’re caught up in it before you realize what’s happening.

His guitar playing is nothing short of magic. As a singer, his powerful voice recalls Sam Cook, Otis Redding, Robert Cray, and Donny Hathaway. You don’t even think about it, you just know that the blues flow so naturally for Rob. His guitar playing and vocals are so polished, he sounds as if he grew up closer to Chicago than Verona, Italy.

All the way from Italy!

Rob was born in Verona, Italy and picked up the guitar when he was very young. He has played at some of the biggest European festivals, like the Amsterdam Blues Festival, New Orleans Music Festival in Ascona, and the San Remo Blues Festival.

In the USA, he performed at B.B. King’s Blues club in Memphis, and Antone’s in Austin, Texas, the North Atlantic Blues Festival in Rockland, Maine and regularly tours in New England. In 2011 he was granted a US working visa as an artist of extraordinary ability.

In 1991 he founded his own band MORBLUS, which brought him critical recognition and awards. Since then, he has collaborated with many important artists such as Guitar Shorty, Jesse Yawn,Roomful of Blues and Many more!

The band consists of Roberto on guitar and vocals, Steve Bigelow, who was recently inducted into the RI Music Hall of Fame on bass, as well as Liviu Pop on drums. Roberto and Liviu are both inductees to the Connecticut Blues Music Hall of Fame.

Come in for some cold frosties, one of Denise’s famous Bloodies and Brunch. 

The music will be extremely special for sure! A Must not miss show!
