Reina del Cid to make Grassroots debut March 24
Web posted March 14, 2017
NISSWA – The Reina del Cid ensemble will make its Grassroots Concerts debut at 7:30 p.m., March 24 at the Live Well Nightclub and Coffee Bar in Nisswa.
Part singer songwriter group, part rock band you can find Reina del Cid and company at the intersection of lyrical storytelling, catchy riffs, and scorching solos.
After building a devoted online following as a solo artist, Del Cid teamed up with talented musicians Toni Lindgren, Zach Schmidt, and Andrew Foreman to develop a sophisticated sound with broad appeal, drawing in mixed crowds from jamheads to college students to white haired intelligentsia.
Reina del Cid, a Fargo native, and her band cut their teeth in 2013 with a weekly residency at the Amsterdam Bar and Hall in downtown St. Paul, which they held for nearly two years before moving on to tour nationally and release their 2015 album, “The Cooling.”
Lead guitarist Toni Lindgren, a Wisconsin native, has been playing gigs since age 14. Combining Tony Rice-inspired flatpicking with a love for the smooth, flowing melodies of greats Jeff Beck and Roy Buchanan, Lindgren blends rootsy and emotive blues styles, bassist Andrew Foreman is from Portland, and drummer Zack Schmidt is from Bismarck.
In January 2016, Del Cid released a music video for the song “Death Cap,” filmed in Iceland and directed by the band’s longtime creative collaborator, Jason Ho. Their music has recently been featured by Paste Magazine, NPR, and Baeble Music, and they plan to release their next full-length record in 2017.
