Rafael Tranquilino is known locally in the Seattle area as the lead front man and guitarist of his band, The Rafael Tranquilino Band. Consisting of four members, RTB is an instrumental power trio of guitar, bass and drums with vocals that fuses rock, blues and funk with an alternative and fresh sound. Rafael will play a searing riff, tease you with an old fashioned Delta slide and then bring you back down with his powerful lyrics. Rafael's exciting style and notable chops have earned him the reputation of being one of the "hottest" young guitar slingers in the Pacific Northwest and his band was noted as “Best Blues Band of 2012” in the Tacoma Weekly. Since being in the United States, Rafael -as a solo artist and also with his band- has performed in numerous festivals including Magic City Blues Festival, Tremblant International Blues Festival, Safeway Water Front Blues Festival, Playing With Fire Music Festival, Mt. Baker Blues Festival, Winthrop Blues Festival, Untapped Brews & Blues Festival, Ritzville Blues Festival, Sunbanks Blues Festival, Bite Of Seattle Festival, Tacoma Freedom Fair, Taste Of Tacoma, Tacoma Jazz & Blues Festival, Big Sky Blues Festival etc. He also has played numerous and well known night clubs and theaters. One notable venue is the famous Orpheum Theater in Memphis, Tennessee where he competed in the International Blues Challenge. Competing in Memphis three times for the IBC’s Rafael made it through to the semi-finals twice and the finals once.
