Direct from Spain, Quique Gomez will be accompanied by his Bay Area blues all-stars: Johnny "Cat" Soubrand on guitar and vocals; His newest release, Cookin' at Greaseland, was recorded in late 2019 with his great friends, Little Charlie Baty and Kid Andersen. The album has JUST been released in Europe, but has not yet been released in America.

Harmonicist and singer born in Madrid, Quique starts playing harmonica at age 18 and assembles his first band, Juan Bourbon, Juan Scoth & Juan Beer, at the age of 20. It’s with this band he travels the Spanish stages during the following decade, while studying and running a small club. In 2008, he visits Chicago and meets some of the Blues’ greatest exponents with whom he starts playing frequently on both sides of the Atlantic. Quique has stepped on stages from 5 continents, sharing them with artists such as John Primer, Eddie C. Campbell, Bob Stroger, Rockin' Johnny Burgin (with whom he released the 2018 acclaimed CD, ), Jimmy Burns, Tail Dragger, Kenny Blues Boss Wayne…

With 11 albums released so far and more on the way, Quique is releasing his last two records Dealin’ with the Blues with his Quintet, The Vipers and his Acoustic work with the Guitar player Francisco Serrano where Quique plays harp, Mandoline, guitar and vocals.

He has also recorded with Willie Buck and Lorenzo Thompson and he is the voice and the harp of the great Spanish band Gatos Bizcos, Quique puts the harmonica aside on occasions to show us his most “crooner” side as the BOBS ANDS BIG BAND’s singer. With this New Yorker’s band, he performs classics of Swing with arrangements of Count Basie,Thad Jones accompanied by 18 other musicians on stage.

As a complement to his life on stage, he gives harmonica classes at the “Escuela de Blues de Madrid” (Madrid Blues School) since 2013 and is the director of the Intensive Blues Course in Béjar, Spain, since 2009.
