Event Details

“Ty Curtis is a triple threat, since he is the band’s lead singer, as well as the primary composer of their material, and thirdly he’s a sonically incendiary, string-shredding electric guitar player.” – BLUES ROCK REVIEW. Backed by his longtime drummer, Jerry Jacques, and bassist, Tony Valdez, “Ty and his fellow musicians bring us tight sounds as if they have been playing together for decades on many podiums with their combination of power blues & funk!” says Belgian Blues magazine ROOTS TIME. Ty’s energy-packed live shows draw from the rich blues tradition, but he has taken blues in new directions. Fresh out of the studio in Austin Texas, Ty released his sixth CD, BLAME ME July 1st 2016 at Portland Waterfront Blues Festival. Ty is a two-time winner of the Cascade Blues Association (CBA) Curtis Salgado Male Vocalist award and just recently opened for Robert Cray at Revolution Hall in Portland. “Watch out for Ty Curtis. He is a strong up-and-coming artist with a lot to say,” says Robert Cray Tour Manager Tim Aller. Ty has been featured on festival stages and in larger capacity clubs, where exuberant response is not limited to just the audience. World-renowned artists have come away impressed, and Ty has shared the stage and opened for Robert Cray, Eric Gales, Chris Cain, Walter Trout, Roy Rogers, Coco Montoya, The Doobie Bros, George Thorogood, Tommy Castro and many more. Perhaps the late great Paul Delay said it best about Ty Curtis: “He plays it like a young man should—straight ahead and from the heart”
