Rockabilly enthusiasts have an unmissable date this November with the Blues at Moonlight festival, an event dedicated to this American style of music and life. Presented by El Dandy Festivals, this year's edition promises electrifying performances from the biggest names in the industry at the Moonlight Cabaret Bar on the fifth floor of Benalmadena's Sunset Beach Club.
However, to whet your appetite, the organisers have prepared a series of performances in the months leading up to the event, called 'Blues At Moonlight: The Previews' to help fans prepare for the most eagerly awaited event of the year.
Thus, on the 25th and 26th of March there will be fantastic concerts to vibrate to the most electrifying rhythms.
On the 25th, guitarist and singer Jonás Molina, from Madrid, will surprise the audience with his blues guitar playing.
After playing on the blues circuit in Madrid with different bands over the years, this restless musician decided to form his own band in which he presents his personal musical project of his own songs and covers of 50's blues mixed with Jump/West Coast blues and swing/boogie-woogie.
In his repertoire, he pays tribute to artists such as Lowell Fulson, Jimmie Vaughan, Earl Hooker and Duke Robillard among others. A journey through blues that you mustn't miss.
He has also collaborated with several renowned artists on the European circuit such as Big Dez, Marco Cinelli, Little G Weevil and many more.
On the 26th it's the turn of the Buddy Holly tribute band, based in southern Spain. This is a three-piece band with an intense show dedicated to this artist. They also involve other immortals of the genre such as Richie Vallens, The Big Bopper and Dion and the Belmonts.
They also offer a third set full of rock and roll classics from the 50s and 60s, which will keep you dancing.
These concerts, organised by El Dandy Records, will take place at the Sunset Beach Club Hotel in Benalmádena and tickets can be purchased on the festival website https://bluesatmoonlight.com/es/tickets.
