Spain’s best independent blues band? That’s how Whiskey and the Traveller Blues Band is now known, and apart from being one of the best-known bands in Tenerife are now hoping to be on the verge of even bigger and better things. They’ve hit the ReverbNation charts, which I’m told is the worlds facebook for musicians, and hit the number 1 spot for the whole of Spain.
More immediately for us in Tenerife, their fame brought the well known Alex Altarimano and the purple band down from Santa Cruz to see them at the Los Gigantes Carnival … and to their delight they’ve been asked to put on a concert in Teatro Guimerá and to play along side Alex – not as support act, but as a double bill!
The band hopes that the future will see them go on tour with Alex around the Canary Islands and the mainland, and of course the Teatro Guimerá appearance will put them in the orbit of the Tenerife Cabildo, who they hope will invite them to play more of the large events in Santa Cruz.
The Teatro Guimerá concert is on 25 April. Please click HERE for more information. Tickets are just €5. Good luck, and well done, to Whiskey and the Traveller Blues Band!
