$30–35 / Club Fox

Get ready for some powerful blues as New Works Fest 2021artist Chris Cain and the hard-driving young player Maxx Cabello Jr light up the intimate Club Fox in Redwood City. 

Chris Cain offers up a soulful stew of Memphis style electric blues. His powerfully deep vocals and jazz inspired, blues guitar riffs are unforgettably his own, while reminiscent of legends like BB King and Albert King. When Chris burst onto the blues scene with the first of 12 albums, 1987’s Cuttin’ Loose, he found himself sharing the stage with a few of those legends including Albert King and Albert Collins. The combination of his blues upbringing and his jazz studies melded to form the searing guitar style that has moved Chris Cain to the top ranks of the blues music scene.

The amazing young guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Maxx Cabello Jr. hails from the streets of San Jose. His playing is reminiscent of greats like Jimi Hendrix and Carlos Santana, but Maxx adds his own unique artistry. The late, great John Lee Hooker summed it up: “Oh yeah, that boy can really play!” Maxx has shared the stage with such greats as Earth, Wind and Fire, John Lee Hooker, Booker T. & the MG's, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Third Eye Blind, Los Lobos, BB King and many more. He’s played many prestigious venues such as BB King’s Blues Clubs in Hollywood and NYC, CBGB and SJZ’s Summer Fest.
