Ryan McGarvey is a star on the rise. In just the past few years his accolades have included being selected by Eric Clapton from over 4,000+ artists worldwide to perform at his 2010 Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago, to the Guitar Player Magazine’s Annual Readers Choice Award for “Best New Talent” in 2013. 2014 proved to be another epic year for McGarvey as he voted the winner of “Best Guitarist” in the European Blues Awards. Ryan is constantly on tour internationally, and records whenever time permits. His incendiary, yet dynamic guitar playing leaves crowds around the world marveling, and wanting more. With strong songs, award winning vocals, fierce guitar playing, an unstoppable work ethic, and an undying love for the blues flavored hard rock he pours from his soul, Ryan has been compared to the best in the business. Ryan McGarvey, though already a seasoned professional, has a bright future ahead of him that has only just begun. Catch him when you can!

Since he broke out of the orbit of planet Albuquerque about seven years ago, guitarist Ryan McGarvey has definitely carved out a niche for himself in the music world. McGarvey is a frequent and popular performer on both coasts and in Europe, where he successfully tours year after year, drawing appreciative audiences and selling heaps of records. Back in 2005, aforementioned legendary Alibi music editor Michael Henningsen noted, “With a little more vocal seasoning, just a tad more experience and a few additional original tunes, this kid's gonna be as jaw-dropping a performer as Alex Maryol.” That stunning understatement can be experienced with the proper joy and gravitas this Friday, July, 21, when perennial Best of Burque winner McGarvey returns to his hometown for a gig at the ABQ BioPark Zoo (903 Tenth Street SW). McGarvey’s fiery, chop-laden electric blues style will be in full effect that night beginning at 6pm. With tickets ranging in price from $3-10, this just may be your best opportunity to see what the stars beyond Burque look, sound and feel like when properly positioned in front of one of our city’s celebratory summer stages.
