Hector Anchondo Band new album release "Roll the Dice"..hard driving blues-rock

Hector Anchondo doesn’t just play the blues—he lives and breathes the blues. Born in Omaha, Nebraska, he was drawn to those artists who played Fender Stratocaster's like Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Clapton, but also respected the country greats such as Johnny Cash and Hank Williams Sr. His music reflects those influences, but with a definite modern twist.

Hector has performed with Styx, Johnny Winter, Magic Slim, Ronnie Baker Brooks, Indigenous, Big & Rich, Fishbone and many more. He’s appeared at South By Southwest and Red Gorilla in Austin, TX, the Warped Tour in Kansas City, MO, St. Louis, MO, and Council Bluffs, IA, Taste of Lincoln Avenue Blues Stage in Chicago, and Coleman Hawking’s Blues Festival in St. Joseph, MO. Backed by his amazing band, his energetic live shows brim with his passionate guitar style.

Marty's review: The Hector Anchondo Band bring you hard driving blues-rock on this new release with 10 tracks of tight, punchy, soul injected blues. With Hector's brilliant guitar licks up front and a solid backing that includes harmonica, horns and a very polished rhythm section, this release is one for those who enjoy their blues with energy and lots of grunt. 9 original tracks plus their (7 minute) version of Peter Green's "Black Magic Woman" . Certainly no fillers here with my favourite tracks being "Masquerade" and "Face It Down".
