Blues Breaking: John Mayall, Walter Trout to reunite at Tahoe

John Mayall shares the bill at Tahoe on Dec. 17 with Walter Trout.

John Mayall and Walter Trout will share a stage at Lake Tahoe with their respective bands.

The Blues Survivors Tour stops at the MontBleu Resort Casino & Spa on Friday, Dec. 17, according to Brent Harding of Devildog Productions. Tickets will be $30 and $40.

Other venues are Livermore’s Bankhead Theater on Dec. 16 and The Canyon in Montclair on Dec. 12 and The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano on Dec. 10.

Trout, 70, was the lead guitarist in John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers from 1984-89. After going solo, Trout has released 29 albums. He is the 2021 Blues Music Awards recipient of Song of the Year for “All Out of Tears.”

A Blues Hall of Fame member, Mayall, 87, was the first blues player to gain international acclaim as a rock star.

He has a long history of playing alongside talented guitarists. Eric Clapton was the original lead guitarist with the Bluesbreakers. Clapton left to start Cream and was replaced by Peter Green, who later started Fleetwood Mac. Then Mick Taylor joined the group before joining the Rolling Stones.

Mayall’s new guitarist in 2021 is 62-year-old Chicagoan Melvin Taylor, who has replaced Carolyn Wonderland.
