John Lee Sanders

John Lee Sanders stopped by Tuesday Night Winter Blues to play keyboards and saxophone March 18 in Harrah’s Lake Tahoe. The Memphis-Birmingham native who lives in British Columbia often played a music style from the place he lived in between, Louisiana. And, yes, he did play a John Lee Hooker song. The weekly show has been extended through May. The Buddy Emmer Band is host of the weekly show. Reno’s three-time International Blues Challenge  representative Jason King is up next.
