Often referred to as “The Godfather of British Blues,” John Mayall has an impressive musical career that spans over 50 years. The English blues singer, pianist, harmonica player, guitarist, and songwriter founded the band, John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers in the 1960’s—a band whose members included many celebrated blues and blues rock guitarists, such as: Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Jack Bruce, Mick Taylor, Walter Trout, Coco Montoya and Buddy Whittington. Attracted by the West Coast climate and culture, Mayall then made his permanent move from England to Los Angeles in 1969 and began forming bands with American musicians. Throughout the next three decades, Mayall became further revered for his many jazz/rock/blues innovations featuring such notable performers as Blue Mitchell, Red Holloway, Larry Taylor, and Harvey Mandel. Mayall’s popularity continued with a succession of dynamic albums including the Grammy-nominated “Wake Up Call” that featured guest artists Buddy Guy, Mavis Staples, Albert Collins and Mick Taylor. Always one step ahead, John has now hired a new member to be added to all live shows. Her well-known name is Carolyn Wonderland and she’s the first ever woman to hold the position of lead guitarist in any of John’s bands. She was one of the featured guitar players on John’s latest studio album “Nobody Told Me,” released February 2019, that also features Todd Rundgren, Steven Van Zandt, Joe Bonamassa, Larry McCray and Alex Lifeson on selected cuts. The road continues!
