About This Event

Moes Sunday Afternoon Blues Series featuring the return of Lydia Pense and Cold Blood!The word legend certainly applies to Lydia Pense and Cold Bloodand not in some past tense-make-a-living-as-an-oldies-act sort of way either. Pense can still shout like a 60s soul diva and purr a slow blues tune with spine-tingling subtlety.Cold Blood, as a whole, features a stellar group of musicians who have been playing together for nearly 20 years including Steve Dunne on guitar, Steve Salinas on keyboards, a gritty-growling horn section comprised of Rich Armstrong and Rob Zuckerman along with a stellar rhythm section featuring Evan Palmerston on bass and T Moran on drums. The band members are all veteran Bay Area musicians who have played with many great artists including Elvin Bishop, Jefferson Starship, Boz Skaggs, Albert Collins and more.Of course there is Lydia who still has the chops with the patina of a seasoned veteran whos done and seen it all. Together she and the band continue to twist together R into something that doesnt have a label… On any given night, Lydia Pense and Cold Blood power through their historic essentials, like You Got Me Hummin, I Just Want To Make Love To You, Im A Good Woman, and Down to the Bone.Its been a long road, over 40 years to be exact with a break somewhere in the middle. But, Lydia and the band are living proof that a little time off can be a really good thing. With their new CD, Soul Of The Gypsy turning heads across the country, fans are remembering just what has been missing from music in the last few decades. The 12 songs exemplify how a performer can take great strides forward, without forgetting her roots. Using Soul Of The Gypsy as their muse there is a renewed interest in live performances, from both the band, and venue owners. Cold Blood is booking dozens of shows across the country, entertaining generations of club, theatre and festival goers.And, of course, anything Lydia sings is sung well.She has a list of famous admirers that includes Bonnie Raitt, Michelle Shocked, David Lee Roth, even Janis Joplin back in the day.
