Blood Brothers (Albert Castiglia & Mike Zito) with special guest Nick Schnebelen - A Triple Threat Blues Experience

Blood Brothers (Albert Castiglia & Mike Zito) with special guest Nick Schnebelen - A Triple Threat Blues Experience

Under 21 with Guardian

Gulf Coast Records’ Blues Music Award-Winners Mike Zito and
Albert Castiglia bond as Blood Brothers on new CD coming
early 2023. Blood Brothers was produced by Joe Bonamassa
and Josh Smith and recorded at Dockside Studio in Maurice,

Mike Zito and Albert Castiglia are true “Blood Brothers” in life
and in the music they create both individually and collectively,
joining forces in a collaborative effort of songwriting and
performances to create a total listening experience greater than
the sum of its parts. Added to that process are the talents of
producers Joe Bonamassa and Josh Smith, who brought fresh
ideas to the recording sessions, pushing Mike and Albert
creatively and musically to present their best work to date.

“Mike and Albert have a special chemistry together when they
plug in and play that few have. They finish each other's
sentences musically,” award-winning guitarist Joe Bonamassa
said about the sessions. “Great tunes, great people, great hang!
What's not to like? It was an honor to be involved in this

"Mike Zito and Albert Castiglia have done something special,”
added co-producer Josh Smith. “They have both found their
musical confidante. Most solo artists never even look - let alone
find - theirs. They have brought together a real ‘band’ using
members of each's solo acts. The sum of all these parts added
with a tremendous effort to both write and perform the strongest

record of their respective careers has paid off in a special album.
Blood Brothers indeed! Joe and I are proud that these brothers
trusted our partnership to produce this special album!"

Mike Zito and Albert Castiglia will be hitting the road again in
support of the new Blood Brothers album. They will bring
together their two powerhouse bands, featuring Matt Johnson:
drums; Ephraim Lowell: drums; Doug Byrkit: bass; and Lewis
Stephens: piano/organ. Both Mike and Albert will be onstage
performing together for the entire show, so fans can enjoy the
amazing chemistry and creativity that these two musicians share
with each other – and the audience. In addition to their own
rock, blues and roots individual tunes, the set will feature a
number of songs from the Blood Brothers album.

About Mike Zito and Albert Castiglia

Both Mike Zito and Albert Castiglia are celebrating their most-
recent albums: Zito’s double live set, Blues for the Southside

(released Feb. 2021), debuted at number one on the Billboard
Blues Chart; and Castiglia’s latest solo disc, I Got Love,
(released in May, 2022) also charted very high.
Mike Zito won the 2022 Blues Music Award for “Blues Rock
Album;” and Albert Castiglia won the BMA for “Blues Rock
Artist.” With both artists on the exciting Gulf Coast Records
label, it only made sense to join forces and give the fans what
they’ve long been clamoring for: “Blood Brothers.”

Nick Schnebelen – Multiple Blues Music Award Winner
From 2018 to 2022, Nick Schnebelen and his band have been touring North
America as the opening act for George Thorogood and the Destroyers. Nick
clearly has the blues-rock power to fill that slot with regular standing ovations.
When not supporting Thorogood, Nick headlines his own tours in USA and
Europe. Nick got his introduction to the worldwide Blues community in 2008,
along with siblings Danielle and Kris, as a founding member of the Kansas City
band Trampled Under Foot. They overwhelmed the competition to win that year’s
International Blues Challenge, with Nick claiming the Albert King Award for “Best
Guitarist”. The band later won the “Contemporary Blues Album” Blues Music
Award. Nick left the band in 2014 and proceeded to release three original albums
under his own name. Nick and his band along with some special guests have
recently completed his next in studio recording, “What Key Is Trouble In?, soon
TBA for early 2023 release. This new music is the follow up to Nick’s critically
acclaimed 2019 release, “Crazy All By Myself.” on Vizztone.
