Acoustic guitar duo, Rodrigo y Gabriela, played Madison Theater on Wednesday March 10, 2010

Rodrigo Y Gabriela played Madison Theater on Wednesday

Rodrigo Y Gabriela made a rare appearance in Cincinnati last night.  The acoustic guitar duo doesn’t tour the U.S. very often.  Most of their tours are overseas.  Having just wrapped up a tour of Japan and New Zealand, the world-class guitarists brought their show to Madison Theater in Covington, Ky.  The duo (Rodrigo Sanchez and Gabriela Quintero) first met in Mexico city playing in a thrash metal band.  They picked up their roots, and moved to Grafton Street in Ireland where they were discovered by Damien Rice.   With a heavy metal being a large influence in their styles, the duo transformed into world-class musicians, blending metal with classical Spanish guitar.   They released their first self titled album and it entered the Irish album charts at #1.  From that beginning they have continued to grow and evolve as a band.  To explain their style would be difficult.  They truly are a band that you must see live in order to fully appreciate what they bring to the table.  Their most recent album is 11:11 and was released on September 7, 2009.  They are energy filled group and are known to be very engaging with the fans, as was witness last night.  The crowd a Madison theater was peppered with all types of people who could not help but dance and cheer to the infectious music that Rodrigo y Gabriela delivered. We captured some great images from the evening, and would recommend checking out Rodrigo y Gabriela the next time they come through your neck of the woods.

  1. What a fantastic duo!
    Is it true he was a “metal” guitarist before they did this?
