Daniel Castro - press photo“Daniel Castro is the latest and one of the greatest blues guitarists to come bursting out of the highly competitive West Coast scene. To the classic music of B.B. King, Albert King, and Albert Collins he has added the three T’s taste, tone, and technique. His raw passion warms your soul while his deep groove kicks your butt on fine, fresh originals and well chosen covers.” – Guitar Player Magazine

Describing Daniel Castro as a blues artist doesn’t begin to tell the whole story. A highly accomplishedguitarist and singer/songwriter with a strong musical point of view grounded in the very best blues traditions is more like it. Combine those talents with original blues-based material and you begin to understand Daniel’s strengths as an artist. Well-known for being a dynamic performer who “leaves it all on the stage” night after night, Daniel brings crowds to their feet with his blistering solos, soulful singing, and tight arrangements.

Touring in support of their most recent recording Desperate Rain, the Daniel Castro Band will be heading to Duff’s Garage on Thursday, October 8. Show time is 9:00 pm and this is a Cascade Blues Association co-sponsored event, so make a point to bring your current membership card to receive a $1.00 discount on admission.

Then on Friday, October 9 the Daniel Castro Band heads out to The Birk for a 7:00 pm show. Located at 11139 Hwy. 202, in Birkenfeld, Oregon, The Birk is nestled in a scenic rural setting and inside a rustic building that feels quite intimate for live performances. It’s not that far out of town; well worth the drive for an early dinner show.
