“A very talented guitarist… and where did that voice come from?” – B.B. King

“One of the Top Ten Guitarists in the World” – Music Taster’s Choice

Anthony Gomes, #1 Billboard Blues Artist, is a triple threat force as a guitarist, vocalist and songwriter. This, along with his high-energy shows and dynamic stage presence, make him one of the top draws on the Rock/Blues circuit today.

Gomes’ new record Peace, Love & Loud Guitars, named Best Blues Album of 2018 by Blues Rock Review and SoundGuardian Magazine, is the culmination of a life spent honoring Blues traditions while never losing sight of his own identity. The Toronto born guitar slinger stands his ground as a creative artist and is eager to push the Blues back into the mainstream.

“My goal is to keep the Blues fresh, exciting and even dangerous,” says Gomes. “I want to bring back the thrill longtime Bluesmen created in their day. At the same time, I think it’s very important for the music to grow and evolve.”

He has performed with the likes of B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Robert Plant, Heart, Sammy Hagar, Joe Bonamassa, .38 Special, Jonny Lang, Robert Cray and Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Gomes recalled a conversation he had years ago with one of those legends. “B.B. King told me the Blues are like the laws of the land. They need to be amended to the times we live in,” Gomes said. “As an artist, it’s very exciting to think that the Blues can be just as ground-breaking today as it ever was.”

Believing that music can inspire the human spirit, Anthony founded the Music Is the Medicine Foundation in 2010. This non-profit organization is dedicated to changing the lives of others through the healing power of music.

Anthony Gomes has nothing left to prove while leaving all his passion on the table. Nonetheless, he continues striving to not only find the legendary “lost chord,” but the ultimate combinations of words, notes and performance. Looking for an actual 21st Century guitar hero? Here he is.

Adam Johnston Band

Adam Johnston, born April 20th, 1990, is a guitarist who’s sound is heavily influenced by iconic bands from the 60’s movement like Jimi Hendrix , The Who, Sly & the Family Stone, The Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd , and many more. His roots began in Blues, Rock, Funk, and Soul music, ripping his licks from guitar gods such as Stevie Ray Vaughn, Clapton, & Hendrix. He spent years ‘cutting his teeth’ covering songs by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Isley Brothers, The Meters, Jimi’s Band of Gypsies, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and many more before forging his own distinct sound. His original music has evolved to embrace the sound of modern Funk, Disco, Jazz, Progressive Rock, and EDM. Its driven by heavy bass, pocket drums, gritty synths/organs, soulful vocals & soaring guitar riffs that deliver the full spectrum of sound. Pumping out infectious dance grooves mixed tastefully with ear-candy covers for an experience that unites both Musicians and Music Lovers alike.
