Mark Hummel at Harrah’s Holiday Blues
December 27, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Mark Hummel is featured at Harrah’s Holiday Blues with the Buddy Emmer Blues Band at Center Stage in Harrah’s Lake Tahoe. With Christmas falling on a Tuesday, the weekly show is moved to Thursday. Born in Connecticut and raised in Los Angeles, Hummel is an American blues harmonica player as well as a vocalist, songwriter and band leader of the Blues Survivors. Since 1991, Hummel has produced the Blues Harmonica Blowout tour. James Cotton, Charlie Musselwhite and James Harman, to name a few, have been featured in the Blowout. Hummel is well know for his West Coast blues. He also is a master at playing the Delta Blues, Chicago Blues, swing and jazz. He has toured for years and recorded many CDs. Last year’s “Remembering Little Walter,” features Hummel with Billy Boy Arnold, Sugar Ray Norcia, Harman and Musselwhite. He also has written a book, “Big Road Blues: Twelve Bar on I-80,” which describes the harmonica player’s decades’ long career on the road. It is a must read for any blues lovers and blues musician.
