The Big Allanbik blues band appeared in 1992 in Rio de Janeiro and was already releasing its first CD, Blues Special Reserve in the next year. The second one, Black Coffee (1994), was launched during the Nescafé and Blues Festival (São Paulo), where Robert Cray, Lonnie Brooks, Otis Clay, Ronnie Earl, Robben Ford, and Eric Burdon also played. Two years later the band went to the U.S., playing at the Blue Note (New York, NY) and at the Tobacco Road (Miami, FL). In Chicago they played with Duke Robillard at Buddy Guy's Legends and with Lonnie Brooks at the Chicago Blue Note. Their third album, Batuque y Blues (1998), produced by Bob Stander, mixed a Brazilian percussion to classic rock and blues. In the same year, the band performed at the Metropolitan hall in Rio four times, on the same night that Steve Winwood and B.B. King played. In São Paulo they had gigs in the Palace and other major nightclubs. At the Parque do Ibirapuera they did a show on the same day that Johnny Rivers played for over 70,000 people.
