Jontavious Willis musical performance

Wednesday, August 14 @ 20:0023:00
Abilene Bar and Lounge,
153 Liberty Pole Way
Rochester, New York 14604 United States
+ Google Map

Every generation or so a young bluesman bursts onto the scene. Someone who sends a jolt through blues lovers. Someone who has mastered the craft for sure, but who also has the blues deep down in his heart and soul.

At the age of 22, bluesman Jontavious Willis may be the one. "That's my Wonderboy, the Wunderkind," Taj Mahal said after inviting Jontavious to play on stage in 2015. "He's a great new voice of the twenty-first century in the acoustic blues. I just love the way he plays."

And four years later he was playing on Taj Mahal's stage. "When I heard him play I said to myself: this is how the blues, as I know it, is going to stay alive," said Paul Oscher.

"Only a few like him emerge every decade or so, when even the most hard core blues fans realize immediately that this is the real deal," writes Frank Matheis in Living Blues Magazine.

Hailing from Greenville, Ga., Jontavious grew up singing gospel music at the Mount Pilgrim Baptist Church with his grandfather. At the age of 14, he came across a YouTube video of Muddy Waters playing "Hoochie Coochie Man" and was hooked. That's when he set his course on the blues. All types — Delta, Piedmont, Texas, gospel. As a fingerpicker, flat-picker and slide player. On guitar, harmonica, banjo and cigar box.
