Show Time : 7:00 PM
Often referred to as ‘The Godfather of British Blues,’ John Mayall has an impressive musical career that spans over 50 years. The English blues singer, pianist, harmonica player, guitarist, and songwriter founded the band, John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers in the 1960s — a band whose members included many celebrated blues and blues rock guitarists, such as: Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Jack Bruce, Mick Taylor, Walter Trout, Coco Montoya, and Buddy Whittington. He became revered for his many jazz, rock, and blues innovations and continued his popularity with a succession of dynamic albums including the GRAMMY nominated Wake Up Call that featured guest artists Buddy Guy, Mavis Staples, Albert Collins and Mick Taylor. In recent years, Mayall has been touring with Jay Davenport (drums), and Greg Rzab (bass). Always one step ahead, he has now hired a new member to be added to all live shows. Her well-known name is Carolyn Wonderland and she will be the first ever woman to hold the position of lead guitarist in any of Mayall’s bands. She is also one of the featured guitar players on his latest studio album, Nobody Told Me released February 2019, that also features Todd Rundgren, Joe Bonamassa, Steven Van Zandt, Alex Lifeson and Larry McCray on selected cuts. The road continues!
