Let's catch a good case of the blues this Christmas with Johnny King & Friends featuring Blues royalty rhythm section Tony "TC" Coleman and Russell Jackson of the BB King Band.
Johnny King lights up the guitar like lightning striking. He is a guitar virtuoso and captivating soul singer who has been professionally performing nationwide for over thirty years. The House of Blues in Dallas has compared Johnny King to a cross between the Neville Brothers and John Fogerty! Johnny King is a skilled musician that has spent a lifetime mastering his craft and performing live entertainment. Johnny has performed and recorded with a long list of Grammy Award Winners (10 and counting!) and distinguished artists who have all endorsed him with their time and talent to produce extraordinary musical entertainment and history-breaking recordings.
Tony Coleman is a Grammy Award Winner who has had an illustrious career spanning 5 decades touring the world with B.B. King, Otis Clay, Bobby Blue Bland, Johnnie Taylor, Albert King, Albert Collins, Etta James, James Cotton, Katie Webster, Z.Z. Hill, O.V. Wright and Buddy Guy. Tony played over 300 shows per year for 25 years with the legendary B.B. King. He is a co-producer and performer on Johnny King’s new album “Call It Confusion.”
Russell Jackson has more than 5 decades under his belt as a master of both acoustic and electric bass. He was the first to employ the slap bass in a blues context, over time earning the moniker, “the Groove Master.” He was spotted by none other than the renowned B.B. King, who invited him to join the B.B. King Orchestra. He spent the next seven years touring the world with the ‘Ambassador of the Blues!’ Mr. Jackson has also performed with other Blues heavyweights including vocalist Otis Clay and Willie Dixon. Russell continues to champion the tradition of the stand-up bass.
