has shown this over the years through his amazing skills in the guitar and vocals. He has been a part of a few bands that
have indeed left their mark on the world with their music, but he is likely most well known for his solo albums that have
brought great music to the ears of music lovers all over the world. Many people would do anything to be able to see Coco Montoya
do what he does best on the stage, and luckily he is now taking to the stage once again for a show in January 2014! Giving
his musical gift to longtime fans and newcomers alike, you won't want to miss this one of a kind artist when he plays his
biggest hits at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, California on January 24th 2014! This is the kind of show that happens
rarely, so don't wait around and risking missing out on an opportunity like this! Tickets are now on sale at StubHub, and

About The Artist
Born in 1951 Santa Monica,
California, Henry Montoya (better known by his stage name Coco Montoya) is a legendary blues guitarist and singer whose works
has made him a well known and respected artist throughout the entire musical world. Starting out as a drummer that focused
on rock and roll music, his life changed when meeting Albert Collins, who schooled him in the art and style of blues guitar.
From there he was involved in a plethora of bands such as with Albert Collins' band, the Bluesbreakers, the Cate Brothers,
but most notably has been releasing material as a solo artist for almost two decades. With his debut solo album "Gotta Mind
To Travel" releasing in 1995, this was the start of a long and lucrative career for Coco, who would continue on releasing
his blues sound with seven full length studio albums, with the most recent being 2010's "I Want It All Back".
There have been so many incredibly solid releases that Coco Montoya has been a part of that to name a single
breakthrough album would be a difficult task to undertake. In a case like this where an artist has been responsible or at
least a big part of so many awesome albums, it makes sense to go with the debut album. For Coco Montoya this would be the
1995 release of "Gotta Mind To Travel", which was his first release as a band leader. This was an incredible release that
featured a star studded lineup of artists like Al Kooper, Debbie Davies, and more, but still managed to make Coco Montoya
shine the brightest, an amazing feat when there is so much talent in the mix!
Coco Montoya Trivia
interesting to note how often luck tends to be a huge part in how an artists career can grow and flourish, creating options
and paths for them to take over the years that aren't open to many. Coco Montoya grew up playing the drums and listening to
rock and roll, but it was luck that Albert Collins happened to play in the same bar on the same night that Coco would be playing
the drums. Despite how visibly nervous Coco was to be playing in the presence of Albert, he was impressed by Coco's skill
and only a few months later invited him to come along with him on his Pacific Northwest tour. The tour ended but the friendship
lasted, with Albert teaching Coco how to really play blues guitar.
