GRAMMY WINNER KEB’ MO’  Set to perform at CCPA

Keb’ Mo’

With his three-time Grammy-winning blend of the Blues, singer-songwriter and guitarist Keb’ Mo’ captivates patrons of the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts (CCPA) on Saturday, January 16, 8:00 PM. Tickets, which range from $65-$41, can be purchased at the CCPA Ticket Office, at www.cerritoscenter.com, or by calling (562) 467-8818.

When KEB’ MO’ emerged on the music scene in the ’90s, he breathed new life into the acoustic Blues style with a distinctive sound that embraced multiple eras and genres, including Pop, Rock, Folk, and Jazz colored with touches of Soul and folksy storytelling. His refreshing mixture of Pop music and understated Blues cemented his reputation as a major concert draw and earned him a string of Grammy awards for the albums Keep It Simple, Slow Down, and Just Like You.

Born Kevin Moore, Keb’ Mo’ grew up on Gospel music, playing the guitar, trumpet, and French horn. Discovered by legendary Roots violinist Papa John Creach of the great groups Hot Tuna and Jefferson Starship, Keb’ Mo’ earned the chance to tour and play with tremendous Blues talents like Big Joe Turner and Harmonica Fats.

His debut album, Keb’ Mo’, earned critical and popular acclaim and featured Bluesman Robert Johnson’s songs Come on in My Kitchen and Kind Hearted Woman Blues. The second album, Just Like You – which featured guest appearances from Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Jackson Browne and nine-time Grammy winner Bonnie Raitt – permanently secured Keb’ Mo’s influence and standing in the musical realm. Billboard hailed the musician’s “gutsy guitar playing and impassioned vocals,” traits evident in his latest album, Suitcase.

Keb’ Mo’s acting credits include several episodes on the televised show Touched by an Angel, a role as a Delta Bluesman in the 1990 play Rabbit Foot, and a portrayal of Robert Johnson in the docudrama Can’t You Hear the Wind Howl?
