A guitarist from the Bay Area will bring his Jimi Hendrix- and Carlos Santana-inspired songs to the South Shore Saturday.

Maxx Cabello, Jr. is set to play a free show at hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe Saturday night, Sept. 12.

“This young amazing guitarist, soulful vocalist, and prolific songwriter, hails from the streets of the San Francisco Bay area where he is turning heads and bending the ears of the most jaded veteran musicians and music aficionados,” according to Cabello’s online biography. “Straight out of the South Bay, this quiet-spoken young man turns into a powerful and captivating artist when he begins to play the guitar.

“His shades of music are reminiscent of the most renowned guitarists of our time. In his work are the inspirations of Jimi Hendrix and Carlos Santana, but Maxx definitely adds his own artistry, showing only influences by the guitar legends. His hard driving method of playing is accomplished as well as energetic. His singing is clear and strong as he expresses his music with sensitivity and honesty giving him a very recognizable voice. Even though the late, great John Lee Hooker praised this young guitar player’s talent, don’t expect to hear any traces of Hooker’s Delta blues style in Cabello’s offerings.”

Cabello has opened for acts including Dickey Betts of the Allman Brothers, Booker T. & the MG’s, Third Eye Blind, Los Lonely Boys and Bunny Wailer.
