Melvin Taylor Blues Band, Stevie Nimmo Trio

A sensational blues double bill.

One of the greatest guitarists and vocalists in Chicago blues history, “Melvin Taylor’s arsenal consists of blinding speed, a feverish wah-wah pedal, a range of tones that leaps from groans to squeals, and notes bent so dramatically that his guitar sounds like it’s retching. Taylor succeeds because he’s a virtuoso who pushes the limits of his own skills.” (Living Blues Magazine). Opening the show, Stevie Nimmo combines Glaswegian grit with Louisiana Swamp, Memphis Soul and Tex Mex Grooves, as happy tearing things up on electric lead guitar as he is on down-home acoustic roots. "Stevie’s voice is at times gritty, other times emotional but all times perfection!" (Maverick Magazine).
