Renowned Louisianan blues/jazz guitarist Tab Benoit is in the midst of his yearlong Whiskey Bayou Revue Tour and performs at the KiMo Theatre in Albuquerque on Tuesday, June 11 at 8pm. One of the most impressive guitarists to emerge from the rich bayous of Southern Louisiana in recent years, Benoit's authentically funky guitar tone can be recognized even before his deep and soulful voice resonates from the speakers. He doesn't rely on any effects and his setup is simple. It consists of a guitar, a cord and an amplifier. The effects you hear come from his fingers and zip through his instrument with audible grace and power to remember for years to come. Check out this all-ages AMP concert for between $18 and $38 before it sells out, jazzers! (August March)
