PORTLAND -Bill Chinnock & His Band will perform with Arlo West Band live in concert Friday, April 16, at The Asylum. Doors open at 8 p.m.

Bill Chinnock & His Band perform a soulful and electrifying brand of blues and R&B. Chinnock made his original musical mark as one of the founders of the Asbury Park, N.J., music scene where he once played with current members of Bruce Springsteen’s E-Street Band.

Chinnock has been steadily developing a loyal fan base since the early 1970s.

Career highlights include an Emmy Award for Musical Direction and Composition in 1987, and a collaboration with New York-based soul singer Roberta Flack that was used as the theme song for the soap opera “Guiding Light.”

Celebrating the release of their most recent effort, “Living In The Promise Land” released on his own Maine-based record label, East CoastRecords, Bill Chinnok & His Band have embarked on a tour of clubs all across the Eastern United States. The album has so far received an impressive amount of airplay on radio stations, including WCLZ.

Focusing mainly on his technically proficient guitar mastery, Arlo West & His Band deliver a distinctive blues-laden rock sound.

The band hails from Auburn and plays at venues throughout the New England area, including Portland’s Big Easy Blues Club.

Tickets are $15 and are available at Bull Moose Music or at the Asylum box office the day of the show only.

This is an event for people 21 and older.
