"Dear people, With what is going on in Europe and the rest of the world right now with the Covid-19 I feel it is only wise to postpone this shows of April until maybe October-November of 2020. I am sorry. I would love to go on tour and play live my music but I feel it will cost me more than just losing money. I have to think of my band and their safety as well. Other well-known artist friends of mine have already cancelled their European tours too I hope and wish all goes well for everybody and that my shows with Vargas blues band and John Byron Jagger soon Will take place in Europe. Blessings to everybody and stay safe until this nightmare is over. 


Javier Vargas"

After a career spanning twenty years during which Javier Vargas has collaborated with numerous artists from the world of rock and blues, in 2012 he brings together an outstanding assembly of world class musicians: Jack Bruce, Glenn Hughes, Chris Rea, Raimundo Amador and Double Trouble among many others. On the release VARGAS BLUES BAND AND COMPANY the classic Rod Stewart hit "Do You Think I'm Sexy" is given a thorough makeover, with Carmine Appice, Paul Shortino, Pat Travers and Javier Vargas presenting a more experimental version.

As the title indicates, Javier explores his heavier side on the 2013 album HEAVY CITY BLUES where he enlists again the help of legendary drummer Carmine Appice and singer Paul Shortino, with Bobby Alexander also contributing vocals. It includes 10 original songs and an excellent cover of LOVE HURTS (Everly Brothers).

In 2015 Javier returns with "FROM THE DARK" (guests Dani Wilde and Chris Jagger), a more personal and introspective work mixing genres and musical styles. In his band are Gaz Pearson on vocals, Peter Kunst (drums) and Luis Mayol (bass).

The new album released in March 2016 “HARD TIMES BLUES” features again Paul Shortino as the main vocalist alongside the core of the current touring band, Luis Mayol and Peter Kunst. The songs fuse Latin rhythms, blues and rock with the unmistakable guitar sound of Javier Vargas, further contributions by Gaz Pearson, Devon Allman and Tim Mitchell. Recorded in Madrid and Las Vegas it is considered by Javier as his best yet, a return to his roots and condensing all experience of 25 years.
