The Chris Duarte Group emerged on the scene out of Austin, Texas in the early 90’s and gained notoriety after wowing a packed room of industry insiders at the South X Southwest convention. In June, Chris Duarte makes his way to Eureka Springs during the iconic Eureka Springs Blues Weekend.
In the wake of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s passing, Duarte quickly gained a National reputation as young man imbued with a playing style comparable at times to the late guitarist. One music critic writes, “Chris’ style is that of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix. It is best experienced live and in your face! Chris Duarte Group shows are unique each night, never the same show twice.”
The Kory Montgomery Band will open for the Chris Duarte Group on Friday. Based out of Fayetteville, AR, members of The Kory Montgomery Band have been spreading their name and establishing a reputation across the country now for 6 years. Find your spot in the Barefoot Ballroom on Friday at 7PM at the top of the Basin Park Hotel in downtown Eureka Springs.
Tickets for the Duarte shows range from $15-$25.
