BLKB - Groove Now - Unser Bier present live at Atlantis Basel:

An Evening with US Blues-Rock-Star Mike Zito & Band

Music, Food & Beer

Thanks to Mike Zito’s close ties with Groove Now we are able to present an additional concert with this extraordinary US Blues-Rock star and his American trio. 

For this occasion, we have come up with something very special: before the concert, all visitors will be served – in the presence of Mike and his band – with American food and, during the whole evening, with Unser Bier, our best local brand. Concert, food and beer will be included in the ticket price! This has been rendered possible by an additional engagement on the part of our partners Basellandschaftliche Kantonalbank and Basel brewery Unser Bier.

For this exclusive evening, no more than 200 tickets will be available.

For over ten years, Mike Zito has regularly been playing for Groove Now. That is why he feels so attached both to Basel and to our organization. At the same time, he may be the most inventive and musically mature representative of the whole Blues-Rock genre – garnering several of the most important awards in the wporld of blues and American roots music, playing with today’s most important blues musicians, and goping on tour, just now, with Tommy Castro & The Painkillers.

In January of this year, Mike formed part of Groove Now’s extraordinary line-up The Blues Giants, formed especially for our two triumphant, sold-out concerts at the Atlantis.

After successfully touring around the world with his great band The Wheel, last year he has returned to his original trio format. This is the way that the Basel public will experience him this time around.

Mike Zito is not just a highly gifted singer, songwriter, and guitarist – he has proved to be a most convincing band leader and entertainer.

In a very special setting – with music, food and beer included -, Mike Zito and his American trio will provide a unique concert experience, in the intimate atmosphere of the Atlantis, that visitors are unlikely to forget soon.
