Alabama Mike with Kid Andersen's Greaseland All Stars (USA) - Only concert in Switzerland!
As a frontman and great singer, the Basel audience will be able to experience Alabama Mike live for the first time. Alabama Mike (born in Mississippi) is described as the great future hope of the blues. He embodies the blues in an honest and very authentic way, which does not happen very often nowadays.
Alabama Mike is a busy man. Until recently, he was a truck driver. Before that, he served in the Army. His side job as a blues singer and harmonica player became more and more popular, so he quit his so-called 'day job' as a driver to earn his living as a blues singer. So far three CDs have been released under his name.
Kid Andersen is undoubtedly one of the best blues guitarists around. He is often called a genius by many musicians. For a few years now, Kid has also been an extremely sought-after producer. In his studio Greaseland in San Jose (California) he produces the recordings of numerous greats from the fields of soul and blues.
He is also the celebrated guitarist of the blues band of the year 2021 in the USA: Rick Estrin & The Nightcats. On the occasion of his concert in Basel, a new CD of his will also be released on Mike Zito's label - Gulf Coast Records. So we can even talk about a CD release party.
The band includes Alabama Mike, his wife Lisa (vocals) and the Greaseland all-star troupe with Jim Pugh (organ, keyboards), Derek 'D'MAR' Martin (drums), bass legend Jerry Jemmott, and blues veteran and singer John Blues Boyd.
John Blues Boyd is one of the last black blues singers who lived through the race riots and celebrates the blues with heart and soul.
