    Chris Duarte

    $10 - 8:00 p.m. Chris Duarte is one hell of a guitarist! He was first inspired by music at the age of 8, watching “Fiddler on the Roof” on television. Duarte then began playing his brother's guitar at 14. He went on to explore the jazz of John Coltrane and Miles Davis and eventually purchased a 1963 Fender Stratocaster guitar for $500 which helped him win a label contract with Silvertone Records. He was named "Best New Talent" and finished fourth in "Best Blues Guitar" behind Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy and BB King in Guitar Players 1995 Reader’s Poll. Wow, now if that won't get you to this show, nothing will.
