Kerry Kearney and

Jack Licitra


An Evening of Blues from the

Delta to New Orleans


Kerry Kearney and Jack Licitra take you on a journey through the blues. Kearney’s virtuoso guitar playing explores Chicago-style electric, Delta slide and Piedmont acoustic fingerstyle blues. Licitra summons Dr. John with his rolling piano riffs and smokey voice. Their collaboration has been going for over twenty years from their tours opening for The Allman Brothers and Dickey Betts Band to selling out many Long Island Venues. Kearney, inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame, has toured the world as guitarist for Marty Balin of Jefferson Airplane while Licitra was part of the acclaimed Water Street Blues Band. They will be backed by veteran rhythm section Jerry Sorrentino and Mario Staiano, formerly of Savoy Brown.


Reviews


"Start with honest emotions, mix with a selection of the finest support musicians you will find, season the whole dish with some New York attitude and get ready for some of the tastiest blues ever to be served up."

– Joe Grandwilliams, Good Times Magazine



"Possibly the best blues slide guitarist this side of the Mississippi or at least of the East River. Whether on his feet playing slide guitar licks to rival the best or sitting down with his Regal dobro across his lap, Kearney just gets better and better. His talent transcends all musical boundaries and in a perfect world, his name would be known from coast to coast.”

– Ron Biegel, Long Island Voice
