Born and raised amidst the cultural milieu of Los Angeles, Keb’ Mo’s style weaves elements of jazz, soul, rock and folk while paying homage to the grandmasters of blues with evocative compositions and spellbinding guitar flourishes. His music career traces back to the early 1970s when he began working with Jefferson Airplane violinist Papa John Creach. He appeared on four of Creach’s albums and received his first gold record for the song “Git Fiddler” off of Jefferson Starship’s “Red Octopus.” In 1994, Keb’ Mo’ dropped his debut solo album, which showcased his contemporary interpretations of vintage blues and caught the attention of critics and mainstream audiences alike.
His second album, “Just Like You” (1996), featured a tapestry of rock-based Delta blues and earned him his first Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album. The blues luminary accepted the prestigious award a second time for his 1998 album, “Slow Down.” Two years later, he issued the Grammy Award-nominated album “The Door” followed by “Big Wide Grin” (2001), “Peace…Back by Popular Demand” (2004) and “Keep It Simple” (2004), the latter of which garnered a Grammy Award. The prolific artist’s collection of accolades continued to grow with “TajMo” (2017) securing the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album and "Oklahoma" (2019) debuting at No. 2 on national blues charts and earning the Grammy Award for Best American Album.
Beyond his unparalleled musicianship, Keb’ Mo’s enigmatic stage presence exudes an air of mystique that has captivated audiences across nearly every facet of pop culture. The artist has performed at the White House, appeared on “Sesame Street” and even collaborated with Martin Scorsese for a series of films entitled “The Blues.” Prepare for an unforgettable experience as the master of post-modern blues fills the Grand Theatre with soul-stirring melodies and irresistible charisma. Doors open at 7 p.m.
