LACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room at 94 New Salem Street in Laconia has recovered from another arson fire and will host the Roberto Morbioli Blues Band on Thursday Nov 14 at 8 p.m. Admission is $12 and Pitman's is a BYOB venue.
Roberto Morbioli was born in Verona and started playing the guitar at an early age. At the age of 15 he discovered his greatest passion to be the blues. After several years of activity in the Italian music scene, he was asked to play in the 'Tao Ravao Blues Band' in 1987, with whom he recorded his first album: "From Madagascar To Chicago". In 1991 he finally set up his own band MORBLUS which has brought him much recognition and many awards, playing in all the biggest national and international blues festivals and events. Roberto's personality and unique playing style are evident in all his interpretations while at the same time recalling the styles of blues greats such as Freddy King, Albert King, B.B. King, Albert Collins, T. Bone Walker, Steve Ray Vaughn and Eric Clapton.
"The blues flow so naturally for Roberto Morbioli, and his guitar playing and vocals are so polished, he sounds as if he grew up closer to Chicago than Verona, Italy." Boston Herald.
