ohn Mayall is a pioneering English blues singer, songwriter, guitarist, keyboard player and harmonica player and is often referred to as the “Father of the British blues.” His well-known band is still called John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers and they started out in the late 1950s in England, using Chicago style blues as a starting basis for their sound, which has evolved from album to album. And while at one point John Mayall was playing a fairly jazzy sound, he has always come back to the blues. One of the interesting features of the Bluesbreakers is that members have changed on a very regular basis, and many have gone on to well deserved fame and fortune with other bands and as solo acts. Past members include: Eric Clapton, and Jack Bruce, (also of Cream), Peter Green, John McVie, Mick Fleetwood, and Mick Taylor, (who went on to a five -year stint with the Stones.) His live shows are the stuff of legend. High Energy, Rockin' Blues. Always an exciting night with one of the Masters of the genre. Highly recommended...if you're a fan of the blues, don't miss it!
