We’ve told you in the past few days about the great vocal talent coming to Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo for January 27 & 28 for the Blues & Rock Festival. We’ve already featured Chris Ghidoni, Joseph Leal, and Torke Ross.

Today we’re very pleased to feature, Isidoro Negrete Reynoso, a man whose lifetime of performances has been dedicated to presenting the Blues. Through vocals, harmonica, and guitar. His Mexico City-based band is called The Blues Machine…La Maquina del Blues. Through his weekly internet radio program presenting the lives and music of great blues performers, past and present.

And very much a Big Heart. His wife Susanna and him operate a small animal rescue shelter and take in many homeless street dogs and street cats in Mexico City and give them the best in medical treatment and food.

Here’s a great 1-minute video clip of Isidoro on lead vocals. From a 2020 Concert in Mexico City. Follow the link. By the way that’s Torke Ross, who is coming here as well, on guitar to the left, sitting in at that performance for the band’s regular lead guitar player.

And here’s Isidoro with a great-sounding harmonica solo from a Mexico City concert in 2018 that we caught live on video.
