The Moonshot Coup in association with Studio on 4th presents Two Nights with The Delbert Anderson Trio and Lance Canales and The Flood. Two unforgettable performances from artists who have magically blended Native American music with Jazz and Latin immigrant narratives with Americana.
Born in the deserts of the Southwest United States - The Delbert Anderson Trio provides a funky and contemporary take on traditional melodies while still swinging away on the Modern Masters. Delbert Anderson, Nicholas Lucero and Mike McCluhan-all talented jazz musicians with international touring and playing experience. DAT decided to get together and experiment with their unconventional instrumentation and influences. DAT knew it had something unique pulling from each individual member’s musicianship and being inspired by Delbert’s Navajo upbringing. Fusing their unique jazz, funk and traditional Native American elements - DAT has performed and built a devoted audience across the United States.
Lance Canales & The Flood are a roots-blues influenced Americana trio from California’s breadbasket, where Canales lived the life that so many songs have been written about since the birth of roots music – hard labor, one room shacks and taunting ghosts whispering of a better life. Canales’ guttural vocals combine a hard-edged storytelling approach beneath a stripped down, foot-stomping, acoustic instrumentation. The Flood are made up of stand up bassist, Jake (Cobra) Finny and American Roots drummer (DB) Daniel Burt. Canales garnered a reputation as a child of being able to train wild horses and for years was forced to take his lumps in order to help his family make ends meet. It wasn’t until he confiscated an older sister’s beat up guitar and combined it with vocals he’d discovered in his mother’s fire and brimstone church that he was able to slowly carve a way out of the hard toil life with his music. While Canales may have left that life behind that life has never left his music. Lance’s narratives have been compared to Steinbeck’s gritty depictions of field laborer hardships. He brings this to the foreground through the Latin immigrant perspective hung off the framework of a true Americana style that would make Woody Guthrie stand and cheer.
