Award-winning soul, blues and R&B singer & harmonicist Curtis Salgado will be in Sutter Creek tonight for a show at the Sutter Creek Theatre. He's touring in support of his tenth album The Beautiful Lowdown where for the first time in his career of forty years, he wrote or co-wrote virtually the entire album himself. Blues Revue, describing Salgado’s performance style, declares, “He starts at excellent before segueing into goose bumps, ecstasy, and finally nirvana.”
Salgado is a one-of-a-kind talent whose music is as compelling as his story.
Tickets are available at http://bit.ly/1ZKVNNw
“Triumphant, joyful blues-soaked R&B – this is music that hits hard and makes you want to move. Salgado is one of the most down-to-earth, soulful, honest singers ever, and his harmonica work is smoking and thoroughly invigorating… rollicking, funky and electrifying.”” – Blues Revue ...

Hound Dog Taylor was born 101 years ago today! It was Bruce Iglauer’s burning desire to release an album by his favorite band – Hound Dog Taylor & The HouseRockers - that started Alligator Records in 1971. Take some time today and check out one of his foot-stomping shuffles, supercharged boogies or a searing slow blues. Happy Birthday HDT!

Introduction
Alligator Records is dedicated to recording and promoting the very finest blues and roots artists, both traditional artists and those who want to mold traditional blues elements into roots music for the future.

“Alligator should be the label that’s exposing the next generation of blues artists and bringing their music to the next generation of blues fans,” says Iglauer. “I want the future of the blues and the future of Alligator Records to be one and the same.”
