Big Gilson & Blues Dynamite – Brazilian blues rock guitarist Big Gilson’s is an electrifying guitar player and plays slide to die for. He was was one of the forerunners of the blues in Brazil and has since played all over the world and has shared stages with some of the biggest blues and rock artists. Big Gilson is a recording artist for Top Cat Records in Dallas Texas and Mississippi Delta Blues Records in Brazil. “...When I see such a young man so far from America, playing the blues so well, I feel happy and proud that my mission in this life is done” B.B. King. .

He honed his chops gigging for many years in Brazil, Argentina, Europe and USA. He opened for Steve Winwood on his Brazilian tour, Johnny Winter and Johnny Rivers (70.000 people), and twice to the master B.B. King. While touring America, and gigging at such clubs as Florida’s Bamboo Room, New York’s Blue Note, and all over Chi-town, Big Gilson knocked out such blues gods as Corey Harries, Duke Robillard, Lonnie Brooks, Magic Slim, Saffire, Walter “Wolfman” Washington and Buddy Guy, who extended the boy from Brazil an open invitation to play his Legends Club anytime.
