On Friday, March 12th, 2004 at 9PM, the Inter-Media Art Center
(IMAC) in Huntington, Long Island will present a blues concert
with JOHN MAYALL & The Bluesbreakers.
Everyone sings the blues now and then. Few, however, do it
with the authenticity, feeling and heartfelt conviction of
JOHN MAYALL. A torchbearer for the blues as they were meant
to be played, Mayall has released well over 40 albums since
his debut as leader of The Bluesbreakers in 1964, and has
achieved legendary status as a bluesman along the way.
Rather than resting on his reputation, the 90’s had
seen the release of several John Mayall albums that equal
or surpassed his best work, and set new standards for the
telling of the blues. He’s come a long way from the
skinny young British lad living in the shadow of WWII who
taught himself to play the guitar, blues harp and piano so
many years ago. His band has also evolved- over the years
the players have included such superstars as Eric Clapton-
and even without the superstar status, they remain true to
the timeless music that was Mayall’s first inspiration.
Tickets for this performance are $37.50 ($28.50 for IMAC
Members). For tickets or further information on this performance,
