Featuring Mark Hummel/Blues Harmonica, Anson Funderburgh/Guitar, Chris Burns/Keys, RW Grigsby/Bass and Wes Starr/Drums

Mark Hummel (Blues Harmonica)
Hummel has been on the road since 1984 and released 17 albums and CDs, including the Little Walter Tribute BLUE AND LONESOME. Hummel has recorded for Flying Fish,Tone Cool and ElectroFi Records, his labels since the early 90s and nominated three years in a row for Best Harmonica by the BMA Awards. He has been performing and producing the BLUES HARMONICA BLOWOUTS in California since 1991.
“Mark Hummel came of age in the early 70s, at the height of rock and roll. Like many of his peers he went and bought a harmonica and hasn’t stopped playing since. A specialist in West Coast Blues, he’s a seasoned showman who knows more than a thing or two about how to please an audience.” – The New Yorker

Chris Burns (Keys)
Veteran blues pianist Chris Burns has been an integral art of studio and stage perfromances with The International Alpha Band as keyboard player and musical director, Maria Muldaur’s Red Hot Blusiana Band, and with Joe Louis Walker’s ensemble.

Anson Funderburgh (Guitar)
Anson Funderburgh has earned the respect of artists Delbert McClinton, Boz Scaggs, Jimmie & Stevie Ray Vaughan and Ronnie Earl, and have called on Anson to lend his tremendous guitar talents to their projects.
Funderburgh recorded with the Fabulous Thunderbirds on their Butt Rockin’ album, and went solo in 1981, when the New Orleans-based BlackTop label released Talk to You by Hand, the label’s first release. After releasing nine albums on Black Top, Funderburgh released Change in my Pocket for Bullseye Blues, which won several W.C. Handy Awards.

“Funderburgh remains a musician’s musician. He’ll explode into a fiery and melodic solo, and then seamlessly recede into a song at just the right moment to propel the rhythm…he makes sure the songs both breathe and burn…a band that truly understands the essence of the genre.” – Blues Revue

“None of the younger crop of blues guitarist come close as Anson does to achieving the classic Stratocaster tone defined by Otis Rush in the ’50’s and Magic Sam in the ’60’s. The Rockets have landed and Anson is at the bridge.” – Guitar Player Magazine
