The Flying Latini Brothers featuring John Latini – Sun July 9
Season Tickets for all 5 Black Cat Concert Series music events are $90.
John Latini is a native of New York but has called Michigan home for over 30 years. He is a 3-time solo Detroit Blues Challenge Winner, and also has been recognized for his songwriting with accolades in Michigan, New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, Utah, Texas and New Mexico.
John released his 5th record of songs at the end of December in 2016. This one is his first full length blues album called “The Blues Just Makes Me Feel Good.” Within 10 days of the release to radio, it was included in Goldmine’s Cool Rootsy Releases of 2016 and received 41 shining reviews to date including one in No Depression. The record debuted at #12 on the RMR Top 50 All Blues Chart, #5 on the Top 50 Contemporary Blues Chart, and #1 on the Michigan All-Genre Chart in the same week. His efforts also resulted in 4 nominations on the final ballot of the Detroit Music Awards.
With the Flying Latini Brothers, he leads the band through his own blues and roots rock catalog of songs working the audience into a frenzy and then swinging them in a different direction with music from the Great American Songbook. The band includes brother Jim Latini on vocals and drums, John Sperendi on bass, Neil Donato on keys, and Ross Huff on trumpet.
“Wrap up Paul Thorn and John Hiatt with barbed wire, roll ’em downhill in a steel barrel with Delbert McClinton’s kick ass road band providing accompaniment for the proceedings. Vocalist/guitarist/ songwriter John Latini’s first full length release is a shack-shakin’, window bustin’ blues party. Latini’s muscular, rockin’ blues grabs you by the throat from the get-go and won’t let go. The Detroit-based Queens native has taken home the trophy for the Detroit Blues Challenge twice and his band the Flying Latini Brothers have been whipping Michigan audiences into a frenzy for years.” -Grant Britt, No Depression
