Chris Duarte & Vince Esquire
The Chris Duarte Group emerged on the scene out of Austin, Texas in the early 90s and gained notoriety after wowing a packed room of industry insiders at the South X Southwest convention. In the wake of Stevie Ray Vaughans passing, Duarte quickly gained a National reputation as young man imbued with a playing style comparable at times to the late guitarist. After fielding interest from a number of labels, Duarte signed to Silvertone Records and his debut album Texas Sugar/Strat Magik reportedly sold in excess of 100,000 units in the United States, no small feat for a blues/rock guitarist. This coupled with Duartes strong commitment to touring, was the impetus for Chris winning the Best New Talent in Guitar Players 1995 Readers Poll. He also finished fourth in the magazines Best Blues Guitarist category that year behind legends Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy and B.B. King.
Vince is our guitar god of Maui, purely shredding with a strong, heartfelt voice. it's not a surprise why you might see Steven Tyler at a Vince Esquire show and loving every moment of it. Gregg Allman loved Vince's music so much he invited him to be his opener for a tour. Many of Vince's performances here on Maui are to SOLD OUT crowds. This event will most likely be no different so make sure you get your tickets early.
