Calendar Icon October 6 d. | door 17:30 | starts 18:30 | Kaunas sports hall

Anthony Gomes - one of the most highly acclaimed contemporary blues-rock performers in the world and brightest star of "Kaunas Blues". With a guitar slung over his shoulder and the amps turned up full tilt, he electrifies blues with a soulful heart and rages like a hurricane in the Mississippi Delta with unbridled rock energy.

This masterful guitarist, talented vocalist, songwriter and producer will rock the "Kaunas Blues" stage with dynamic, fiery blues performed with rare passion. His unparalleled ability to traverse musical realms - from scorching guitar solos that have become his trademark to soulful vocals - exemplifies his seamless fusion of rock and blues genres.

Anthony was born in Toronto and picked up the guitar at the age of 14. He released his debut album in 1998, and since then, he has accumulated a discography of 16 solo albums. Seven of his electric albums have debuted on TOP 10 the "Billboard Blues Chart," including "Anthony Gomes LIVE" (2008) and "Containment Blues" (2020), both debuting at #1. Anthony gained significant recognition with the release of "Peace, Love & Loud Guitars" (2018), which stormed the charts, reaching the #1 on "iTunes Blues Chart," "Amazon," and "New Release Blues Chart." It was acclaimed by "Blues Rock Review" and "Soundguardian Magazine" as the best album of 2018 and was selected as a "Top Album" by "RockTimes," "Rock and Blues Muse," and "BluesFan.com."

Anthony Gomes will present last year's "High Voltage Blues" album on the stage of the "Kaunas Blues" festival – a true masterpiece of blending rock and blues, solidifying his position as one of the most popular and memorable 21st-century blues-rock musicians. No surprise - this album not only debuted at #1 on the "Billboard Blues Chart" but also held its position for 22 consecutive weeks.

Anthony Gomes' record ratings are just a small part of his accomplishments. Dubbed the "Blues and Rock Monster," Anthony Gomes began collecting significant awards in 2002 when "Music Tasters Choice" recognized him as one of the TOP 10 guitarists in the world. Later, Guitar World readers voted him one of “The 30 Best Blues Guitarists in the World Today'' in 2019. For four consecutive years from 2003, Gomes received the "Blueswax Magazine'' Artist of the Year award. Among his notable recognitions are the "European Blues Awards" for "Best Musician/Live Performance" (2017) and acknowledgment by "Billboard" as the best blues artist.
