Italian guitar hero and legend, Roberto Morbioli (Rob Mo) is making only one Boston Area stop on his 2018 U.S. Tour -- and you can see him at up close and personal at the North Shore's newest, most intimate, elegant listening room!
Rasta Pasta Pizzeria will sell their Fresh Made Pizza, Meatball Subs & Cannoli during this show!
ROB MO (Roberto Morbioli) plays the Blues.
He can breathe fire from his axe like a young Clapton or Stevie Ray. Crowded, noisy bars hush a bit when he steps up and folks look around to see who this is making such a holy wail.
His personality and unique playing style shine through all his interpretations so much that, even while recalling the styles of blues greats such as Freddy King, Albert King, B.B. King, Albert Collins, T-Bone Walker, you see and hear that every note is coming straight from the heart. And it's so infectious that you're caught up in it before you realize what's happening.
His guitar playing is nothing short of magic, and as a singer, his powerful voice recalls Sam Cook, Otis Redding, Robert Cray and Donny Hathaway. You don't even think about it, you just know that the blues flow so naturally for Rob, and his guitar playing and vocals are so polished, he sounds as if he grew up closer to Chicago than Verona, Italy.
Rob was born in Verona, Italy and picked up the guitar when he was very young. He has played at some of the biggest European festivals like the Amsterdam Blues Festival, New Orleans Music Festival in Ascona and San Remo Blues Festival.
In the USA, he has performed at B.B. Kingâ€™s Blues club in Memphis, and Antoneâ€™s in Austin, Texas, the North Atlantic Blues Festival in Rockland, Maine and regularly tours in New England. In 2011 he was granted a US working visa as an artist of extraordinary ability.
In 1991 he founded his own band MORBLUS which brought him critical recognition and awards. Since then, he has collaborated with many important artists such as Guitar Shorty, Jesse Yawn, Robben Ford, Roomful of Blues and Big Daddy Wilson.
