Rick Vito @ Cozy's Bar & Grill in Sherman Oaks (02/97)

The following pictures are from a great show that Rick Vito (& the Mambo Rhythm Kings and Friends) played at Cozy's (pictures are from the last set of the night). Rick was back in town from his new home in Nashville, TN and sounded better than ever. If you've never had a chance to see Rick, either with John Mayall, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Fleetwood Mac or others, you're missing one of the world's best guitar players. Check him out if you get the opportunity, you won't be disappointed!

Please enjoy the pictures outlined below:
