Head Honchos to rock the blues at Blue Chip Feb. 1

January 29, 2019

MICHIGAN CITY — Head Honchos will rock the blues in concert at Blue Chip Casino, 777 Blue Chip Drive on Feb. 1. Showtime is 5 to 9 p.m. at the Rocks lounge.

The performance is free and open to those 21 and over.

“Bring It On Home” (Grooveyard Records) is the debut studio disc by this hard-working band from Valparaiso featuring the dual twin-guitar attack of father and son, Rocco Calipari Sr. and Rocco Calipari, Jr. They’re on a mission to rock the blues, family-style.

Rocco Calipari Sr. is a skilled teacher of guitar, who, since 1995, has also played lead guitar for renowned Chicago-based blues group, Howard and The White Boys. Famed blues guitar great and Legends club owner Buddy Guy – who lent his skills to H&TWB’s album, on The Big Score – has been a longtime mentor the group. During his long career, Calipari Sr. – one of Chicago’s great contemporary blues guitarists – has played with Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Carl Weathersby, Son Seals, and many more, in some forty states and twelve countries around the world.

Rocco Jr. first sat in with Howard and the White Boys when he was 15 years old. He attended the Guitar Institute in Los Angeles where he studied with Carl Verheyen (of SuperTramp renown), jazz/blues great Scott Henderson, and famed blues instructor/writer, Keith Wyatt. His approach to the guitar, while grounded in rock and blues, is keenly aimed at a post-modern interpretation of American roots music.
