For more than five decades, Blues Hall of Fame inductee John Mayall has served as a pioneer of blues music, earning him the title, "The Godfather of British Blues", and now he, along with his three-piece band, are playing Tanks for Bluesfest Touring.

The seemingly ageless road dog, who famously takes no days off and carries his own gear on tour continues to ride the waves of time through changing musical influences and tastes with an impressive career that spans over 50 years.

The English blues singer, pianist, harmonica player, guitarist, and songwriter founded the band, John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers in the 60s—a band whose members included many celebrated blues and blues rock guitarists, including Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Jack Bruce, Mick Taylor, Walter Trout, Coco Montoya and Buddy Whittington.

Attracted by the West Coast climate and culture, Mayall made his permanent move from England to Los Angeles in 1969 and began forming bands with American musicians. Throughout the next three decades, Mayall became further revered for his many jazz/rock/blues innovations featuring such notable performers as Blue Mitchell, Red Holloway, Larry Taylor, and Harvey Mandel.

Mayall’s popularity endures with a succession of dynamic albums including the Grammy-nominated 'Wake Up Call' that featured guest artists Buddy Guy, Mavis Staples, Albert Collins and Mick Taylor all the way to his newest album 'Nobody Told Me' (2019).

“This project has been a true labour of love for me and I can’t wait for people to hear the fireworks that took place.” Mayall
