Moe's Alley welcomes THE GUITARSONISTS: Chris Cain, Daniel Castro & Mighty Mike Schermer as part of our Sunday Afternoon Blues Series.

The Guitarsonists are a burning new blues/rock/jam band featuring 3 of the Bay Area’s most dynamic guitar slingers: Chris Cain, Daniel Castro and Mighty Mike Schermer. Although heavily steeped in the blues, this awesome triumvirate of talent often goes many steps beyond…exploring the outer boundaries of musical interplay with a different and exciting performance every time they appear together.

Chris Cain started his prodigious musical journey at age 8, quickly becoming a master of not only the electric guitar but also the piano, saxophone and vocals as well. His jazz-tinged, searing guitar style and booming vocals have made him a blues nightclub and festival favorite for over 30 years. He is a deeply passionate and committed performer with a level of talent that can only be described as “genius”.

Daniel Castro honed his chops in the blues scene of Southern California before bringing his talents north and eventually dominating the circuit in and around San Francisco. He is heavily influenced by such blues guitar masters as Albert King and Albert Collins, and has toured and recorded with such greats as Ronnie Lane of the Small Faces. One would be hard pressed to find anyone in the business who cares more about the music than Daniel Castro. He is an exciting performer with a fun, often humorous, stage presence, and brings an unparalleled level of professionalism to the Guitarsonists package.

Mighty Mike Schermer was a fixture on the Bay Area blues scene for almost 25 years before he packed up his trusty Telecaster and relocated to Austin TX in 2009. He has not only carved out a solid solo career…with six award winning albums and hundreds of performances the world over…but he has also been the “go to guy” sideman, touring and recording with such legends as Elvin Bishop, Marcia Ball, Charlie Musselwhite, Howard Tate, Angela Strehli, Bonnie Raitt and many, many more! Smart, talented and passionate…Mighty Mike delivers on all fronts.

You’re gonna need a strong foundation to hold up these three heavyweights…which is why the Guitarsonists chose the rock solid rhythm section of Mick Mestek and Steve Evans to lay down the drums and bass. Both are first-call veterans in the Bay Area music scene. Mestek has backed just about everyone in his 30 plus years of playing and is also a former member of Tower of Power. Evans has toured and recorded with Roy Rogers, Coco Montoya and too many more to mention. And lest ye think these two seasoned bad-asses just sit underneath while the guitars go off, sit back and marvel as they push the trio to unimaginable heights.
