George Heagerty at Redwood Cafe

Sat, May 11, 2019, 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm

George Heagerty’s guitar and vocals recall the day when R&B – that’s “Rock & Blues” was the dominant form. Heagerty’s blue collar no-bull style is a welcome relief from the ersatz art bands, glamour boys, and plaid posers. This is music as real as old-fashioned denim jeans.

Born in San Jose, CA and living most of his life in the Santa Cruz mountains, George listened to KFAT (now KPIG) and was influenced by blues, rock and early American roots music. He started performing music in the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 1980’s. He played numerous shows with Al Rapone and performed with Rockin Sydney as well, giving him the opportunity to hone his guitar skills and experience life on the road with other musicians with amazing resumes (including musicians who have played with BB King, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Queen Ida, Quicksilver Messenger Service to name a few). George’s band has opened for acts like Foghat, Spirit, Robin Trower, Johnny Winter, Rick Derrenger, Elvin Bishop, and many more.
