Dance ready and dipped in soul, CW Ayon has been a one man band for about 10 years and a duo since 2017 with the addition of Willie Dixon styled slap upright bassist Felipe Toltecatl. Even though he’s based out of the southwestern deserts of New Mexico, his soul is deeply rooted in the groove infused Blues of the Mississippi Hill Country. With a simple kick/snare and tambourine setup, he lays down solid beats with his feet while picking out catchy hooks on guitar. Sometimes dropping in a bit of cross harp for good measure. All the while that upright bass is holding down the low end and adding a bounce to the beat with double and triple slaps building a style and sound that is deceptively larger than one might expect from a duo. Expect lots of original music along with some favorites to round out the night. Bring your dancing shoes!
