When Rock 'N' Blues Fest takes over the Westchester County Center, audiences might think they've died and gone to '70s rock 'n' roll heaven. The festival's all-star lineup of virtuosos is determined to rock the socks off all generations of music fans, and it assures that no one will step in a steaming pile of disco.
Johnny Winter, considered one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time by Rolling Stone, rides the frets with reckless abandon as his fast-forward thumb-picking demonstrates why he was enshrined in the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame. From his applauded solo albums to his Grammy–winning work with Muddy Waters, Johnny Winter leaves fans in awe with his Tootsie Roll Pop of never-ending guitar licks. Also performing, former child prodigy Edgar Winter mirrors his brother’s ambidextrous and adventurous music skills across a variety of instruments. Best known for stadium stompers such as “Frankenstein” and “Tobacco Road,” the accidental father of the keytar alternates between the saxophone and a keyboard strapped around his back as he stampedes through a hummable catalog of arena-rock staples.
Six-string slinger Rick Derringer, a longtime collaborator with the Winter brothers who is responsible for The McCoys' hit “Hang On Sloopy,” pricks and tickles his guitar through classics such as “Rock and Roll Hootchie Koo,” while Leslie West of the seminal '70s band Mountain rocks out timeless hits such as “Mississippi Queen.” The riff-packed festival also features Welsh guitarist Kim Simmonds of Savoy Brown fame, whose British blues fills fans with guilty expatriate fantasies.
