Roberto Morbioli Returns to The Shelter

Roberto Morbioli Returns to The Shelter

Special Guest Jake La Botz Opens!

The Fallout Shelter - 61 Endicott Street, Norwood, MA, 02062

The Fallout Shelter hasn't seen Roberto Morbioli in quite some time but he's become a bit of a regular whenever he's over here on this side of the ocean. We hosted an acoustic set with him at the Boston Winery a few years back and we're stoked he's coming in August. Roberto is one of the most incendiary guitar players we've ever seen and we've seen a few. He's the consummate entertainer that leaves every bit of emotion, passion and energy on the stage with every show. This is pure Chicago blues played by an absolute master of the craft! Joining Roberto will be award winning bass guitarist Lenny Bradford and the heralded Romanian drummer Liviu Pop. This is gonna smoke! Roberto takes the reigns at 8:30 to 10PM.

A RARE two act show at the Fallout Shelter features the fabulous Jake La Botz opening from 7:00 to 8:15. With Jake are guitar maestro Troy Gonyea (Fabulous Thunderbirds), Jesse Williams (North Mississippi All-Stars) on bass and Marco Giovino (John Prine, Bob Dylan) on drums. Singer/songwriter Jake La Botz plays roots-drenched music that reflects his time performing in streets, bars, churches, and even tattoo parlors. You can also hear the various places La Botz has lived in his music — including his time in New Orleans, the Mississippi Delta, and his native Chicago where, as a young man, he found kinship with some of the last of the pre-war era bluesmen: David “Honeyboy” Edwards, “Homesick” James, and “Maxwell Street” Jimmy Davis. In 2017 and 2019 Jake released his studio albums Sunnyside and They’re Coming for Me on Hi-Style Records to critical acclaim. Produced by Jimmy Sutton, both albums won Independent Music Awards. Jake has toured extensively in the U.S. and Europe and has performed on stage with Ray Charles, Etta James, Dr. John, Mavis Staples, JD McPherson, Buddy Guy and Junior Wells, Tony Joe White, Low Cut Connie and a host of other greats. He's also got quite the acting chops. “Acting’s what I wanted to do as a kid, so I bought a second-hand suit and volunteered as an usher to see live theatre for free,” La Botz recalls. “I wanted to be near the action, and the magic, the mythology and the storytelling, that creativity. Later in life I crashed a movie premiere (which is something everyone in LA ought to do at some point), and there I met Steve Buscemi; I invited him to a gig, and he actually came out! Such a cool guy.” Buscemi began to frequent La Botz’ shows, and the two struck up a friendship; before long, Buscemi was set to direct a film (Animal Factory), and wrote in a role for La Botz. From there, La Botz went on to act in a number of other films including Rambo, On the Road, and The Grace of Jake. He also starred in the stage musical Ghost Brothers of Darkland County written by Stephen King and John Mellencamp.
