An Intimate Night with Eric Lindell, with special guest Dustin Gaspard
January 26 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm CST
Eric Lindell, a New Orleans resident/California transplant, is accomplished on guitar, harmonica, keyboards and bass, and has performed with many of the Crescent City’s top musicians since bursting on the scene in 2005, when he first appeared at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
Lindell’s music has been described by USA Today as “pumping soul into funk, blue and roots-rock.” The Chicago Sun-Times called Lindell “a tremendous raw talent…with a fully realized musical vision.” The Los Angeles Daily News stated, “Lindell serves up bluesy blue-eyed soul. The shuffling interplay of electric guitars, percolating organ and Creole horns never fails to make you feel like dancing.”
Lindell’s musical style borrows from 1970s blues-rock, soul, and R&B. His style has also been called “blue-eyed soul”, a common shorthand used for Anglo blues singers that has been applied to artists like Van Morrison, among others.
Based in Lafayette, Dustin Dale Gaspard is both Alt. Folk Songwriter and front man/ vocalist for Rock N Soul group DG and The Freetown Sound. He has prided himself on conviction of live performance, clever cryptic lyricism and an always evolving songwriting style.
