Mark Hummel and his Golden State Lone Star Blues Revue
September 5, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Mark Hummel and his Golden State Lone Star Blues Revue return to The Village at Squaw Valley on Sept. 5, the final Bluesdays of the year.
Like the name indicates, the band is a combination of musicians from California and Texas. It is fronted by harmonica superhero Mark Hummel.
Hummel is the author of the 2012 autobiography “Big Road Blues – 12 Bars on I-80,” in which he describes the constant battle to get paid by club owners after a gig. Obviously, Squaw Valley has no problem squaring up with musicians. Hummel is second only to Chris Cain for its number of Bluesdays appearances.
The band features dual guitarists from Texas, Anson Funderburgh and the newest member Mike Keller, who formerly played with the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Little Charlie Baty, who was with the band for six years, left in December.
Golden State Lone Star Blues Revue players are nominated for four Blues Music Awards, Best Band, Album, Harmonica player and Bass player, R.W. Grigsby.
