Film Summary
Los Villanos Blues Band return to Cafe Breton to tell the story of the blues in Mexico and their own roots bringing the blues to the streets of Guadalajara. The Villain Cut features their original compositions accompanied by special guests, including Genaro Palacios Clemow, the Godfather of blues in Mexico. Sections between the performances provide a great insight into the growth of both the band and the blues in Mexico.
The Story
Los Villanos Blues Band were born as Naranjito Blues Band in 2007 when four young kids, after listening to an album by Eric Clapton & The Yardbirds, began dreaming of playing the blues. Too young to play in clubs they took to the streets and played there for many years creating a huge following while introducing the blues to an entire new generation. Their hard work and dedication paid off and after a name change in 2013 they began hosting the ‘Martes de Blues y Destrucción at Cafe Breton’ (Tuesdays of Blues and Destruction at Café Breton) in downtown Guadalajara and invite their friends to join them for an evening of blues jamming at Café Breton. Just like their effort in the streets, ‘Martes de Blues y Destrucción at Cafe Breton’ has grown into a legendary jam session where the Villanos and their friends meet every Tuesday and play for several hours with many guest musicians from other parts of Mexico, and indeed the world joining them. sdl productions recorded one of these evenings for the purpose of producing a live album, concert video and ‘rockumentary’ named ‘Got The Blues? The Villain Cut’ telling their story.
The Band
Los Villanos Blues Band are a blues band from Guadalajara lead by brothers Javier and Abraham Villaseñor on guitar. Both Javier and Abraham have been recognized for their contributions to the blues scene in Mexico by being inducted into to the Mexico, Blues Hall of Fame ®. They play contrasting styles – Javier uses a metal and rock influenced approach to his playing and Abraham’s playing is reminiscent of traditional blues guitars. The result is a distinctive sound and approach to blues creating their unique Latin influenced style. Two young very talented musicians provide the rhythm section, Víctor Romero on bass and Iván Ramírez on drums. The group features two vocalists – Thomas Banks from San Francisco and Valeria Vivanco from Guadalajara, Mexico.
Resumen de la película
Los Villanos Blues Band regresan al Café Bretón para contar la historia del blues en México y sus propias raíces, llevando este ritmo de música a las calles de Guadalajara. The Villain Cut presenta sus composiciones originales, acompañados por invitados especiales, incluido Genaro Palacios Clemow, el Padrino del blues en México.
La historia
El grupo nació originalmente como Naranjito Blues Band en 2007, cuando cuatro jóvenes adolescentes, después de escuchar un disco de Eric Clapton and The Yardbirds, sueñan con tocar blues. Demasiado jóvenes como para tocar en centros nocturnos, ellos tomaron las calles con su música por muchos años, creando así muchos seguidores e introduciendo el blues a toda una nueva generación. El trabajo duro y la dedicación dieron frutos, así que después de que en 2013 la banda cambiara de nombre, se convirtieron en los anfitriones de los “Martes de Blues y Destrucción” del Café Bretón, en el centro de Guadalajara. Cada semana, invitan a sus amigos músicos a que se les unan para improvisar notas a lo largo de la noche. De igual forma que aquel esfuerzo realizado en las calles años atrás, los “Martes de Blues y Destrucción” en el Café Bretón se han convertido en una sesión legendaria, en la que Los Villanos y amigos se reúnen cada semana para tocar prolongadas horas de música con músicos de otras partes de México, e incluso de otras partes del mundo. sdl productions grabó una de esas noches, con el propósito de producir un álbum en vivo, un video en concierto a manera de “rockumental”, llamado Got The Blues? The Villain Cut, para contar su historia.
La banda
Los Villanos Blues Band es una banda de blues originaria de Guadalajara, liderada por los hermanos Javier y Abraham Villaseñor, ambos a la guitarra. Ellos ejecutan estilos contrastantes: Javier tiene influencias de metal y rock mientras que los sonidos de Abraham tienen reminiscencias de jazz clásico. El resultado es un blues muy particular, con un enfoque en sus influencias latinas.
