Description

Dr. MacArnold:

His musical journey began in the 1950s when he and his brother Leroy fashioned a guitar from a steel gas can, wood, nails, and screen wire. His early career included working with a young James Brown in the band, J. Floyd & the Shamrocks. Dr. MacArnold moved to Chicago in 1965, where he worked with A.C. Reed prior to joining Muddy Waters' band in 1966.[3] Dr. MacArnold appears on the November 1966 live recording with Muddy released in 2009 as Muddy Waters - "Authorized Bootleg". He formed the Soul Invaders in 1967, finding work backing up B.B. King, The Temptations, and others. By the 1990s, Dr. MacArnold had grown weary of the road life and returned home to Pelzer, South Carolina and virtual retirement from the spot light until 2006 when he was convinced to front his own band, Plate Full O' Blues. Arnold's return to the stage was the subject of a documentory, Stan Woodwards final film, Nothing to Prove: Mac Arnold's Return to the Blues]

We hope you will enjoy Dr. MacArnold as much as we have enjoyed bringing you quality entertainment to enjoy in our city #takemetopickens.
