FRI, JUL 19 | Taj Mahal Quintet, Elvin Bishop & Charlie Musselwhite

FRI, JULY 19 at 7:30 PM
Frost Amphitheater

For more than 40 years, Grammy-winning legend Taj Mahal and his band have taken blues on a joyride through reggae, funk, jazz, cajun, and more, leaving a trail of swinging hips and raised palms in their wake. The quintet is made up of internationally renowned bassist Bill Rich and steel drummer Robert Greenidge (Jimmy Buffet’s Coral Reefer Band), revered percussionist Tony Durham and Hawaiian based guitarist and lap steel master Bobby Ingano. The five match musical virtuosity with downhome grit unlike anyone else: a blend of sophistication and humble familiarity that is equally at home on a shotgun-shack porch or a Carnegie Hall stage.

Opening the show will be a special performance featuring Grammy award-winning harmonica master Charlie Musselwhite.

Due to illness, Elvin Bishop will not be able to perform. Charlie Musselwhite will go on as planned.
