Toronzo Cannon with Vanessa Colier

August 15, 2018 - The Hamilton - DC

Rock, Roots, & Blues - Live



Chicago blues guitarist Toronzo Cannon is a relatively new find for me. I first saw him opening for the great Sonny Landreth in July of last year. Since that fantastic set, I've been a fan. Toronzo has a special passion about his playing. He is in the moment and yet, you can tell he is leading up to something as he plays. Heavy and hard, delicate and soulful, Toronzo does it all. On August 15, 2018, Toronzo headlined The Hamilton in Washington, DC. Blazing hot from the start, there is nothing in his playing that isn't a notch above your usual blues guitarist. Always smiling and seemingly perpetually happy, Toronzo clearly loves playing, especially in front of an audience. Go see Mr. Cannon if at all possible. You may find something new and that sticks with you.
