Max Gomez at Hotel St. Bernard – Taos Ski Valley

At the age of nine, Gómez picked up his brother’s guitar. Soon, he had his own. He took guitar lessons from Mitch Austin in Taos, and started playing at the Old Blinking Light restaurant at about age 15, where the owner invited him to play a few songs in between local country music legend Michael Hearne’s sets. Gómez attended both Taos High School and Chamisa Mesa High School, and then headed to the Musicians Institute, a world-renowned school of contemporary music in Los Angeles. His music career has taken off since then.

Guitar Shorty at Martini Tree Bar

JAN. 20TH, 2012
Time: 8:00pm | Day: Friday | Doors: 7:00pm | Ages: 21+ Ages

In New Orleans, Shorty fronted his own group that became the house band at the legendary Dew Drop Inn. There he played with greats such as T Bone Walker, Big Joe Turner and Little Richard. It took a job with Sam Cooke to get 19 year old Shorty on the bus and on his way to the West Coast.

Shorty lived and worked in both Los Angeles and Canada until in 1961 he met his wife, Marcia, in Seattle. When Shorty married Marcia he also got Jimi Hendrix, Marcia’s brother for a brother-in-law. The young Jimi Hendrix came to see Shorty play often and they were friends until Jimi’s untimely death

Like a Texas tumbleweed, Shorty rolled back to the Los Angeles area in 1971 and Los Angeles has remained his home. He cut his first full album and got his first W.C. Handy Award while living there.

Since that time Shorty has recorded several albums for the Black Top label and is currently signed to Evidence Records. He often jams at local clubs with former members of the Eagles, Steely Dan, and calls local blues artist Keb Mo a personal friend and fan. He continues to capture audiences with his sincerity, energy, and Rocking/Blues style.
