Blues master Steve James performs in La Antigua

Internationally known blues guitarist Steve James traveled from Austin, Texas, to perform for an appreciative audience at Ocelot, the blues & jazz joint in La Antigua Guatemala.

The intimate setting, limited to just 50 guests, was the perfect venue for James’ flawless fingerpicking on the guitar and mandolin. Singing old standards and newer favorites from his latest CD, ‘Short Blue Stories,’ James captivated the patrons on Thursday night, March 3.

Opening the festive night was Carlos Funk of Blind Lemon’s Restaurant and Café in San Marcos La Laguna. James was heading to Lake Atitlán after the Antigua show.


  • Hi Matt, Nice to meet you and thanks for the coverage. Twas a fun night….the people who hung in till the end got to hear “The Change” which is one of my all time favorites that combines Steve’s great playing with his inimitable sense of humor. He’ll be at Blind Lemon’s this Saturday the 12th, before he flies back to Austin. Come and see one of the best listening rooms south o the border.
