Leah Tussing & Rafael Tranquilino -$7 or 2 for $10: Thursday, April 20, 2017 | 07:00pm-10:00pm

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MYTgorH_GY

This blues duo from Seattle will absolutely blow you away.  Check encourage you to thoroughly check them out, then make a date here at the court!

Rafael Tranquilino is known locally in the Seattle area as the lead front man and guitarist of his band, The Rafael Tranquilino Band. A power trio consisting of guitar, bass and drums that fuse rock, blues and funk with an alternative and fresh sound. He’ll play a searing riff, tease you with an old fashioned Delta slide and then bring you back down with his powerful lyrics. Rafael's exciting style and notable chops have earned him the reputation of being one of the "hottest" young guitar slingers in the Pacific Northwest and his band was noted as “Best Blues Band of 2012” in the Tacoma Weekly. Born in Mexico City, Rafael Tranquilino is a big city kid. He is accustomed to subways, stadium sports (especially baseball), and lots of opportunities to hear and play live music. His father, a newspaper journalist, fostered Rafael's interest and talent in music. He started him on the piano when Rafael was just five years old. By the time he was nine, he was playing guitar, bass, and drums. After high school, he studied music at “La Escuela Superior de Composicion y Arreglo Musical” ESCAM and from a teacher from the “G,Martell University of Music” in Mexico City. Mexico has a rich tradition of music festivals, and Rafael has performed at many of them, including the International Festival Cervatino and also well know venues such as The Hard Rock in Mexico. He has played with his own band as well as well known Mexican artists. Examples such as legendary rock and blues singer Baby Batiz and the classic blues band, Heavy Nopal. Rafael arrived in the United States in 2006 and was hired as the musical director and lead guitarist for The Randy Oxford Band. He recorded and was featured on 3 of their albums and extensively toured with them. In 2011 Rafael decided to take another creative turn by stepping out on his own and forming The Rafael Tranquilino Band. Some of his major influences include guitarists such as Slash, Jimmy Hendrix, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Carlos Santana, Steve Vai, Jimmy Page, Richie Blackmore, Sonny Landreth and Warren Haynes. Rafael has called his style of music alternative/blues/rock, music that will rock your heart & soul! “The music I play is to rock your heart & soul- to expand your awareness.” – Rafael Tranquilino Since being in the United States, Rafael has performed in numerous festivals including Magic City Blues Festival, Tremblant International Blues Festival, Safeway Water Front Blues Festival, Playing With Fire Music Festival, Mt. Baker Blues Festival, Winthrop Blues Festival, Untapped Brews & Blues Festival, Ritzville Blues Festival, Sunbanks Blues Festival, Bite Of Seattle Festival, Tacoma Freedom Fair, Taste Of Tacoma, Tacoma Jazz & Blues Festival, Big Sky Blues Festival etc. He also has played numerous and well known night clubs and theaters, one being the famous Orpheum Theater in Memphis, Tennessee where he competed in the International Blues Contest. What people say about Rafael: “Rafael is the man. Such a guitarist. I think he sleeps with his guitar next to him because they’re so attuned to one another. In the battle of guitar faces, this guy wins. He screams when his guitar screams, and cries when it cries...”Tez Mercer - Tez Mercer Photography “Rafael plays with a passion & conviction that is thrilling & chilling audiences everywhere he takes the stage.” Jonathan Oogie Richards - The Blueshouse KSER 90.7FM & WWW.KSER.ORG and Mighty Mouth Blues www.nwzcradio.com “...What you have felt as a comfort and outlet, you want to give to others. You are an Earth Angel Raf!” Dee Marino - Maurice the Fish Records Press: http://www.tacomaweekly.com/citylife/view/rafel-tranquilino-explores-new-vistas-in-music/

Leah Tussing is a dynamic and diverse vocalist whose vocal range goes beyond notes to her ability to cross over into many different genres. While being originally trained in jazz, she has also sung funk/soul/blues/pop/and rock in several groups in the Pacific Northwest. Participating as a member of multi-vocalist groups, with artists/bands singing both lead, and back up, she uses skills learned from the different settings and applies them to her studio vocal arranging. These bands/artists include The Kim Archer Band, Raymond Hayden and The Monsters In The Dark, Strangely Alright, Enrique Henao, Chris Hyde, and The Rafael Tranquilino Band. She has a particular gifting for harmonies that comes from an exceptional ear that was nurtured by four years in an award winning vocal jazz ensemble. In addition to her career as an artist Leah Tussing is also co-owner of the music production company Flat Hat Productions, and the Rafael Tranquilino Band Manager.
