The Blues: John Hammond & John Mayall
February 16 & 17—The Allen Room

John Hammond has been a blues fixture for decades and recently joined hallowed company as an inductee into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2011. The soulful GRAMMY®-winner is the consummate triple threat musician (on vocals, guitar, and harmonica) whose roots-driven blues has influenced countless musicians, from Jimi Hendrix to Bob Dylan. Literally and figuratively Sir John Mayall is British blues royalty who hired among others Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Mick Fleetwood back in the 1960s. At 78, he is an ageless wonder who plays with the same intensity today as he did when he first blazed a blues path around the world. Hammond will perform solo, and Mayall will perform with his band in this double bill. Pre-show music in the Atrium provided by Bryan Carter, Friday February 17 only.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
