Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, Lopez first held a guitar at the age of five. He owned his first axe at age eight. When he was 12 he moved with his family to Dallas, Texas where the local Deep Ellum influence took hold. The state of Texas is known for its fiery blues guitar players, and Lance Lopez’s furious fretboard mastery encapsulates that sound.Lopez’s newest album “Tell The Truth” is a rare beast, a well thought out blues rock record. In a genre which can become stiflingly repetitive, Lopez, along with producer Fabrizio Grossi, avoid the usual pitfalls by bringing to the forefront some elements too often found absent in so many youthful displays of six string exuberance common to the breed. Doors open at 8:00, show starts at 9:00.
