I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Enrico Crivellaro Band

A former student of Ronnie Earl, Duke Robillard and Kenny Burrell, Enrico Crivellaro has developed a refined yet explosive guitar style which has led him to tour and record with an impressive number of major-league artists—among them James Harman, the late Lester Butler of the Red Devils, Janiva Magness, Finis Tasby, Bruce Katz, Jason Ricci, the Royal Crown Revue, and legendary harmonica player Lee Oskar of War's fame. His resume includes concerts and memorable guitar showdowns with the likes of Jeff Healey and Chris Cain.
Born in Padova, Italy, but later relocating to Los Angeles, and now literally living in a suitcase and taking his music all around the world, Enrico Crivellaro has been able to prove that passion and talent can transcend political and cultural borders. He is an established figure in the international Blues scene, and one of the most respected Blues guitarists of his generation.
His reputation is growing all over the world as he tours regularly from the Americas to Europe, to Australia, to Asia and even Polynesia, playing the most renowned clubs and festivals (among them: Livid Festival, Brisbane, Australia; 2000 Olympic Games, Sydney, Australia; Philips Dubai International Jazz Festival, Dubai, UAE; Belgium Rhythm’n’Blues Festival; Lucerne Blues Festival, Switzerland; Southside Shuffle, Toronto, Canada; Sacramento Heritage Festival, California; Tucson Blues Festival, Arizona; Moulin Blues Festival, Holland; Universal Blues Festival, Singapore; Manly Jazz Festival, Australia; and many, many more!) and having often shared the bill with the likes of John Lee Hooker, B.B.King, Mose Allison, and so forth.
Enrico’s musical taste and guitar licks have been refined during his studies with several Blues masters at the National Guitar Workshop, in Connecticut, and later at the University of California with jazz legend Kenny Burrell. But he has learned his trade “the old way”—by playing, literally, thousands of gigs everywhere, with some of the best artists in the contemporary Blues scene. Enrico’s strength lies in his extraordinary versatility in different musical genres, which has allowed him to build an extraordinary experience playing with bands and artists of all extractions—soul jazz, country, funk and even zydeco. Yet his playing is firmly rooted in the blues language and his passion for Earl Hooker, Pee Wee Crayton and Lowell Fulson is pleasantly noticeable.
Signed by the excellent Canadian-US label Electro-Fi Records, Enrico has debuted with a well-arranged CD, “Key To My Kingdom”. His affiliation with Electro-Fi has opened the way to new opportunities—in fact Enrico has co-produced Finis Tasby’s CD “What My Blues Are All About” and has appeared with label-mate Mel Brown and his band, which comprises Bob Stroger and Willie “Big Eyes” Smith of the Muddy Waters Band.
The latest CD, “Mojo Zone”, is a 2009 Electro-Fi release which features 70 minutes of genre expanding Blues guitar instrumentals, showcasing the incredible sonic range of one of the most gifted young guitarists working on the Blues scene today`Write on our Facebook Wall or post your Photos of great blues events! - Here
