$8/DoorLEVI PLATERO IS FROM THE NAVAJO NATION OF THE SOUTHWEST REGION OF THE UNITED STATES. WITH HIS FAMILY BAND “THE PLATEROS” THEY EMERGED ON THE MUSIC SCENE IN 2004 AS A BLUES ROCK POWER TRIO COMPARED TO THE LIKES OF STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN, LOS LONELY BOYS AND ZZ TOP. AFTER A DECADE OF TOURING THE US WITH HIS FAMILY BAND, A 1 YEAR RUN AS MEMBER OF THE INDIGENOUS BLUES BAND, LEVI DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO GET BACK TO HIS OWN MUSIC AS A SOLO ARTIST. HE THEN RECRUITED A NEW BAND, BEGAN TOURING, AND RELEASED A SELF TITLED EP FEATURING THE SINGLE “TAKE ME BACK” WHICH WENT ON TO WIN THE 2016 NMMA FOR BEST BLUES. LEVI PLATERO IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF A GUITAR PLAYER WITH A GIFT OF GUITAR PLAYING INTUITION OF MUCH MORE EXPERIENCED PLAYER. LEVI’S QUIET NATURE IS UNLEASHED IN A STYLE THAT MIXES A SPECTRUM OF TEXAS BLUES, VINTAGE ROCK, TO MODERN GUITAR HEROES SUCH AS ERIC JOHNSON AND STEVE VAI. WITH A CAPTIVATING LIVE SHOW HE RANGES FROM FLURRIES OF GUITAR ACROBATICS ALL THE WAY DOWN TO SOULFUL EXPRESSIVENESS. LEVI IS A GUITARIST AND TALENT TO BE RECKONED WITH AND WILL CONTINUE TO SHINE IN THE BLUES/ROCK GENRE. CURRENTLY LEVI PLATERO AND HIS BAND ARE GEARING UP FOR A 2017 NATIONAL TOUR TO PROMOTE THE NEW EP AND A SECOND FULL LENGTH ALBUM TO BE RELEASED IN THE SPRING OF 2017
