Be Our Guest: Santa Cruz Blues Festival

bog chrisWin tickets to see Chris Isaak at the Santa Cruz Blues Festival

With a swoon-inducing voice, reverb-y guitar sound and a look straight out of the 1950s, Chris Isaak has pretty much created a genre for himself in pop music.

To find an apt comparison for the guy with a long list of hits including “Wicked Game,” “San Francisco Days,” and “Let Me Down Easy,” you have to go back to the Roy Orbison era. For the last 30 years, Isaak has been a regular on the charts, and this year he’s the Santa Cruz Blues Festival Sunday headliner. Also appearing on Sunday are blues rock band Vintage Trouble, Salinas-born singer/songwriter Jackie Greene, Black Crowes founding member Rich Robinson and Memphis-based, Serbian blues guitarist Ana Popovic. | JP
