Rich Hopkins & Luminarios :: Live At El Lokal


Mei 2019 verscheen van Rich Hopkins And Luminarios de formidabele studioplaat Back To The Garden. Om een goed jaar nog meer glans te geven, levert de groep uit Tucson, Arizona nog een smakelijk toetje af. Live At El Lokal is de weerslag van een concert uit 2017 in El Lokal in het Zwitserse Zürich. Tien liedjes met opzwepende woestijnrock en gierende gitaren in de beste Neil Young & Crazy Horse-traditie, aangevuld met drie nummers van twee jaar daarvoor. 72 minuten met hypnotiserende en meeslepende rock & roll, uitgebracht in een beperkte oplage van 1000, dus wees er snel bij.

For three decades now, the name Rich Hopkins has been synonymous with dusty, guitar-drenched desert rock from the American southwest. This is true for the Tucson, Arizona musician’s regular albums and even more so for his irresistible live performances. Backed by the Luminarios, a tight band, Hopkins plays desert rock like no one else, making the guitar sing and howl and time stop in his inspired solos. Needless to say, audiences are right there with him in a heartbeat.
Rich Hopkins & his Luminarios have toured Germany and the neighboring countries more than 20 times since 1997. “El Lokal” in Zurich, Switzerland has long been one of their favorite venues. Recordings from two shows at „El Lokal“ are now available on CD. Ten of the album’s 13 songs – which touch on many stations of Hopkins’ career – are from a concert in May 2017.
