CBBLUES PROFILE: DANIEL TENA * HARP ATTACKER * DEDICATED TO BLOWING THE BLUES


It's all about blues music appreciation here at CBBlues Webzine and Blues Fans who attend our Socials will know that these events are guided with gratitude by CBBlues.com's excellent music director, Buddy Paul Tidiman. It is because of his monster connections into Spain's under and above ground - blues vibrations, that we all benefit by being introduced to the exciting players in this genre. .

At this year's CBBlues HARP ATTACK PARTY - all in attendance will be introduced to a busy blues professional with a passion to keep all forms of the blues alive!

MEET DANIEL TENA

Born in Valencia in 1977, Daniel is a blues harmonica performer and singer. He is part a unique generation of Spanish blues revivalists; a movement that I just adore. He has been a professional musician since 2007.

Daniel hooked up with blues guitarist Raul Rabadan T-Bonski and in 2007 and created the their own blues band called Nasty Boogie. Since that time they have released two CD recordings - 'Moanin' at Midnight' (2009), and 'Fresh Little Fish' (2012).

In 2010, Daniel and Raul created yet another style of blues tribute act called Big Holler, which is the only pre-war blues genre duo in Valencia. This act is filled with music influenced by the pre-war blues, country blues and the more primitive visions of American Folk Blues Music.

Big Holler's CD is called "Burn Your Bridges" (2011) and it was a big hit for the duo being promoted at some hot spots including Hell Paso de Leganes (Madrid), the Honky Tonk (Barcelona), the Museu d'Art Modern de Barcelona, who recorded a 45 minute appearance for a TV3 program called "Cava de Blues" ( see below video )

Needless to say, these revivalist are finding a bevvy of welcoming blues supporters making them one of the most active and present blues performers in Spain.



Daniel Tena has some great backbone performance experiences, bumping notes with musical masters such as Igor Prado, Lynwood Slim or Gene Taylor.

He is also a member of other bands such as Medicine Show Company and The Moneymakers.

Don't miss Daniel Tena
