Quique Gomez

Quique Gomez

Born in Madrid, harmonicist and singer, Quique Gomez started playing harmonica at age 18 and assembled his first band Juan Bourbon, Juan Scotch & Juan Beer at the age of 20. It’s with this band that he traveled the Spanish stages during the following decade while studying and running a small club. In 2008, he visited Chicago and met some of the Blues’ greatest exponents with whom he started playing frequently on both sides of the Atlantic. Quique has performed on five continents with artists such as John Primer, Eddie C. Campbell, Bob Stroger, Rockin Johnny (with whom has recorded Dos Hombres Wanted released on Vizztone label in 2019) Jimmy Burns, Tail Dragger, Kenny Blues Boss Wayne, Kid Andersen, Little Charlie Batty, Chris Cain

He has also recorded with Willie Buck and Lorenzo Thompson, and he is the voice and the harp of the great Spanish band Gatos Bizcos. Quique puts the harmonica aside on occasion to show us his “crooner” side as the BOB SANDS BIG BAND’s singer. With this New Yorker’s band, he performs classics of swing with arrangements by Count Basie.
