Sugar Blue is Back at Jazz alley in Seattle April 16th and 17th

Grammy winner harmonica genius Sugar Blue returns for two exclusive concerts in Seattle at Jazz Alley: the unstoppable and constantly touring harmonica wizard has recently returned from a series of concerts in Rome Italy and for the second year in a row won the prestigious Chicago Music Award as Best Entertainer of the Year. Performances will feature new original compositions as well as some classics from the live album RAW SUGAR recently released... and almost entirely recorded during last year's explosive performance at Jazz Alley.

CLICK HERE for ticket and show details for Sugar Blue's upcoming April 2013 performances at Jazz Alley. 

Tune into the Mighty Mouth Blues online radio show  8 pm Monday, April 8th at
Sugar Blue will be talking Blues with Oogie & Sweet Danny and they will be giving away a couple of tickets to the show!

Born and raised in New York, harmonica genius Sugar Blue began his career as a street musician, he grew up listening to the jazz greats and then honed his chops by wailing along with Bob Dylan (with whom he would later record...) and Stevie Wonder songs on the radio. Like many American musicians before him Sugar Blue left these shores and relocated to Paris, where he became a first-call studio musician and performing artist.

That’s his harmonica blasting on the Rolling Stones’ platinum disco hit “Miss You”. Considered to be one of the first harp pyrotechnicians, he uses awe-inspiring high-register runs, circular breathing and electronic effects on his harmonicas blending them into his unique, visionary and singular style, technically dazzling yet wholly soulful. Grammy winner Sugar Blue has been called the Jimi Hendrix of harmonica: he has played and recorded with Willie Dixon, Prince, Rolling Stones, Stan Getz, Bob Dylan, only to name a few...

Sugar Blue is accompanied by a powerful quartet with Rico Mc Farland and Harry Hmura on guitar, Ilaria Lantieri Blue, co-writer on most of the originals, is on duty as bassist again on this tour providing a solid rhythmic base along with percussionist par excellence James Knowles (Tyrone Davis, R. Kelly,...)
Sugar Blue and his top notch band are guaranteed to put on a high octane show that you will remember for a long time..
