MARK HUMMEL (BLUES SURVIVORS)
MAGIC DICK (J GEILS BAND)
LEE OSKAR (WAR)
JERRY PORTNOY (MUDDY WATERS/CLAPTON)
Since 1991 Mark Hummel has been both producing & performing at his annual Blues Harmonica Blowout series. These shows have grown to be a much heralded event & continue to draw sellout crowds wherever they appear.
Mark Hummel is a road warrior - a true Blues Survivor. Along the way, he has crafted his own trademark harmonica sound - a subtle combination of tone, phrasing and attack combined with a strong sense of swing. Magic Dick's innovative harmonica playing served as a strong distinguishing sound for the J GEILS BAND. Lee Oskar's role as a founding member and former lead harmonica player for the pioneer funk/jazz group, WAR, won him international renown for over two and a half decades. Jerry Portnoy spent six years as a member of the fabled Muddy Waters Blues Band and was a featured member of the Eric Clapton Band.
Appropriate for all ages.
