He and his wife, Alicia Aragon, have been performing together since 2000. Since then, the two have put out three CD’s [yes, those things] and are currently in the process of finishing their fourth release, “Before the Devil Steals Your Soul.”
On Friday, May 11, Blue Largo from 6 to 7 p.m., Blue Largo will kick off a night of live music at the perennial local favorite, Gator by the Bay.
Gator by the Bay is billed as “The largest, most-authentic Louisiana-themed music and food festival this side of the bayou will be held from May 11 to 13.
Presented by San Diego’s Bon Temps Social Club, it features four days of live music with more than 100 musical acts and special performances on seven stages, southern cuisine... dancing and family fun at Spanish Landing Park on beautiful San Diego Bay across from the airport.”
“This is probably the sixth or seventh time we’ve played here,” said Lieberman, who defines their five-piece-band sound as “original vintage R&B.”
“We’ve made intermittent appearances over the years,” he added.
Blue Largo definitely carries a torch in the realm of authentic, vintage interpretations of guitar, piano and horn-laden soulful stylings.
With Aragon at the helm as leading lady, expressing herself through her blue-eyed-soul-tinged delivery, there arguably could not be a more fitting local act to represent at this year’s Gator by the Bay.
“We played the San Diego and Baja Blues Fest [respectively] last year,” said Lieberman. “While these annual festivals are great exposure, it truly helps keep these genres fresh – and us on our toes.”
Singe and multi-day passes are still available to attend Gator by the Bay and are available at gatorbythebay.com. For more information on Blue Largo and their forthcoming album, which is tentatively due out on July 21, visit bluelargoblues.com.
There may not be a better way to celebrate the changing of the season than with great food, sunshine and live rhythm and blues music. La Jolla act Blue Largo embodies that sentiment to a T.
