Guitarist and Vocalist Robert Michaels to Perform at the Oak Grove Pavilion
Fresh Roasted Concerts will present Juno winning guitarist and vocalist Robert Michaels on Saturday, May 25 at 7:30 pm in a wonderful concert under the oaks and beneath the stars in the Oak Grove Pavilion, 220 W. Lomita, Ojai. Two years ago, Robert played this venue to a standing ovation. Michael’s live performances provide something for everyone: incredible guitar playing, audience participation, energy, culture, passion, fun and tremendous musicianship! Michaels uses Latin flamenco beats to create a fiery beautiful sound. He will be joined by two musicians and an award-winning flamenco dancer.
His noted instrumental guitar compositions are a fusion of Latin- Jazz, Flamenco-Cuban as well as Neapolitan- Spanish. Besides being a Juno recipient, he is also a platinum-selling artist (almost unheard of in the instrumental genre) who has joined forces with several other celebrated musicians, songwriters and vocalists. Through it all, he continues to remain true to his art and cater to his loyal audience. “I would rather play to a live audience than record an album. The immediate interaction and the spontaneous energy that it creates are very exciting,” says Michaels.
Tickets in advance are $27 for adults, $25 for seniors and will be available at Ojai Coffee Roasting, online at www.ptgo.org (click on Fresh Roasted) and by phone at 805-646-8907. Tickets at the door will be $3 more.
