MARK HUMMEL AND BLUES SURVIVOR WITH LITTLE CHARLIE Live On Tap!
Saturday, December 29, 2012 from 8:00 PM to 11:00 PM (PST)
LIVE ON TAP!--Old Town Pittsburg's New Live Music Hot Spot at EJ Phair's Taproom
The past two decades has seen the emergence of young harmonica-led blues bands. In California, groups that draw their inspiration from the Chicago school but add elements of jump blues and rock 'n' roll into the mix have come up with an exciting new style of West Coast blues. In Oakland, the northern capital of California blues, resides the incredibly powerful harmonica player and vocalist Mark Hummel, leader of The Blues Survivors, who has been a major force in shaping and defining this musical genre.
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. While Mark is new to Electro Fi Records, his earlier albums, constant touring and appearances at the major blues festivals have firmly established his solid reputation around the US and Europe.
"Mark Hummel is simply one of the best harmonica players working today!..." - Huey Lewis
