Saturday Musical Headliner: VITERA
Announcing WCAF SATURDAY HEADLINER: VITERA
The sonic lovechild of Maná and Guns N’ Roses conceived to the sounds of Santana and born in the land of Crossover, VITERA fuses old-school American rock with Latin grooves and instrumentation as a backdrop for pop rock lyrics in Spanish, English, and Spanglish. His influences include AC/DC, G N’ R, Whitesnake, Allman Brothers, Maná, Cabas, Juanes, and Rabanes. Consistently backed by a hand-picked lineup of seasoned players, this Austin-based artist brings an unmistakable Texas edge to Rock Latino blending congas and horns with greasy slide guitar one minute and orchestral strings with fiery rock violin the next. at 8:45 p.m. Saturday, September 22nd.
Saturday’s music also features Ghosts Along the Brazos. You will surely dance, you will often laugh, and you will inevitably be awed by the musical prowess of twenty-something’s playing far beyond their years.
Connor Forsyth on Piano and Hammond B3 is a wunderkind, a player that truly commands attention. A member of The Belleville Outfit, he honed his chops touring the country, and now splits his time between the Ghosts and the legendary Ray Price’s touring band. You may also recognize bassist Kristopher Wade and guitarist Gregory Harkins from one of Austin’s brightest swing/jazz outfits, The Marshall Ford Swing Band, and the interplay between Forsyth, Harkins, and Wade with drummer James Gwyn rounds out the 4-piece, who splits his time touring with country legend, Junior Brown. http://ghostsalongthebrazos.com
