Blues & Bourbon: Mick Martin’s Big Blues Band w/ special guest Annie Sampson

 

Sacramento blues legend/ harmonica-player/singer Mick Martin leads his horn-powered, original music group featuring Danny Sandoval (sax), Aj Joyce (bass), Andrew Little (guitar), Dave Johnson (trumpet/trombone), Mike Caselli (Hammond organ/piano)and Jim Caselli (drums). On this special night, we are thrilled to have the powerful and legendary Bay Area singer Annie Sampson


(Stoneground, Elvin Bishop, Steve Miller, Jerry Garcia, The Blues Broads) joining Mick and band on stage, as well as Danny Sandoval's 18-year old son, Andres.


Music lovers in Northern California might know Mick Martin for his 30 years as the host/producer of "The Blues Party" on Capital Public Radio and the leader of Mick Martin & the Blues Rockers for over 40 years. As Bill Champlin has said, "There are harmonica players who play music and musicians who play harmonica. Mick is in the latter category."


An award-winning harmonica player and singer-songwriter who has toured the U.S., Canada, England, Italy and Belgium, Martin's accomplishments include over 20 CDs (four in Europe), performing with jazz organist Jimmy Smith at Carnegie Hall's "Blues in Jazz" event and topping his 17-year association as lead singer and harp player with guitar innovator Harvey Mandel (Canned Heat) at West-Fest, the 40th anniversary of Woodstock. Martin has also played behind Freddie King, Elvin Bishop, Bo Diddley, Mick Taylor, John Mayall, Tommy Castro, Savoy Brown's Kim Simmonds and many others.


For the Mick Martin Big Blues Band, he has assembled a group of accomplished musicians with pedigrees as impressive as his own.All of these men have played and recorded with a list of world-famous artists. According to Martin, "This is my dream band; a group of gifted musicians I have long admired and never thought I would be able to assemble into a band. And, man, do we have a great time when we play." So does the audience! https://www.facebook.com/Mick-Martins-Big-Blues-Band-105792278551663
