Salgado, an award-winning singer, harmonicist and songwriter has spent 40 years entertaining crowds with high-intensity performances of soul, blues and R&B music.
He went from co-fronting the Robert Cray Band to leading his own band and recording nine solo albums; he toured the country with Steve Miller and Santana. Salgado also transformed comedian John Belushi into “Joliet” Jake Blues for the “Blues Brothers” film.
He won the 2010 Blues Music Award (BMA) for Soul Blues Artist Of The Year and went on to win the award again in 2012 and 2013. In 2013 Salgado also won the coveted Blues Music Award for B.B. King Entertainer Of The Year—the highest honor the blues world has to offer.
Blues Revue Magazine says Salgado’s music is “triumphant, joyful, blues-soaked R&B” and called him “one of the most soulful, honest singers ever.”
