It's hard to simply refer to an artist as "versatile," especially when there's no foreseeable limit to that artist's talent. Take one Herb Heinz, for example. Whether he's working as a guitar-playing sideman and backing up a musician such as singer-songwriter Teressa Wilcox, or playing straight-ahead rock 'n 'roll, reggae, and other styles with his band, the Turbines, this unassuming guy mystifies to the core. Heinz can and does play everything, with a composer's attention to detail and a matador's bravado. Olé.
Herb Heinz and the Turbines play Thursday, January 9, 8 p.m. at Three Heads Brewing, 186 Atlantic Avenue. $5. 244-1224. threeheadsbrewing.com.
