After 27 years of house-rocking studio albums and smack-in-the-mouth live shows, Albert Castiglia is the acknowledged master of red-raw, sweat-and-hair blues that gives it to you straight. Albert Castiglia made his professional debut in 1990 with Miami Blues Authority, but truly hit the international radar when Junior Wells invited him into his solo band for several world tours. ‘It was an incredible adventure,’ recalls Castiglia. ‘Ever since I was a kid, I wanted to be a Chicago bluesman. Junior opened the door for me to do that.’

UPCOMING SHOW!
