Blues & Bourbon: Mick Martin’s Big Blues Band


Blues fans 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. An award-winning harmonica player and singer-songwriter, his accomplishments include over 20 CDs (four in Europe), performing with his mentor, jazz organist Jimmy Smith, in concert, (and with other jazz and blues icons at Carnegie Hall’s nationally broadcast “The Blues in Jazz” event in 1994) and topping his 17-year association as front man with guitar innovator Harvey Mandel (Canned Heat, the Chicago Blues Reunion) at West-Fest, the 40th anniversary of Woodstock.

For the Mick Martin Big Blues Band on this special December date, he has assembled a group of accomplished musicians with pedigrees as impressive as his own: Danny Sandoval (saxophone), Andrew Little (guitar), Mike Caselli (organ/piano), Dave Meros (bass), David Johnson (trumpet/trombone/arranger) and Jim Caselli (drums).

All of these men have played and recorded with a list of world-famous artists that can be considered the Who’s Who of the music business. As Martin has said, “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.” And so does the audience.
