Vocals + B-3 = rockin’ blues

Apr 18, 2017
Blues keysmeister John Ginty has teamed up with singer/songwriter Aster Pheonyx for his latest project.

Rockland — The Monday Night Blues series continues May 1 with a 7 to 10 p.m. concert by the John Ginty Band in the upstairs music room of Time Out Pub, 275 Main St. Admission will be $15 at the door.

John Ginty has literally covered a lot of ground of late. Fresh off playing Hammond B-3 for the Dixie Chicks on their MMXVI World Tour, Ginty is hitting the road with his own band in support of his winter release, “Rockers,” featuring New Jersey singer/songwriter Aster Pheonyx.

Ginty has spent years as a successful sideman, playing keys with legendary artists such as Citizen Cope, Santana, Jewel, Charlie Mars and many more. He was a founding member of Robert Randolph & the Family Band, with which he received two Grammy nominations. In the past few years, Ginty has solidified himself as a solo artist.

Pheonyx is a powerhouse rock singer who co-wrote all of the songs on “Rockers” with Ginty. The combination of Pheonyx’s voice blending with Ginty’s ‘69 Hammond B-3 organ is some fine magic.

Next up in the weekly series, on May 8, is the Juke Joint 5 ($10). Shows are subject to change.
