RJ Mischo displaying the skill that makes him one of the best blues harp players around. With Andy T Band at the Boise Blues Festival, July 17, 2016, Boise, Idaho.
Blues guitar sensation Andy T electrifies the stage at the 2016 Boise Blues Festival on Sunday, July 17. It was clear why he and his band are up for Best Blues Band and Best Blues Album this year in the Blues Blast Music Awards. His most excellent band was joined at the festival by blues harp icon RJ MIscho for a truly dream pairing on short notice! We send our best wishes to Andy’s co-bandleader Nick Nixon for a speedy recovery.
“Top echelon” blues harmonicist/vocalist RJ Mischo has been added to the Boise Blues Festival lineup! Mischo will play with the Andy T Band, to replace band co-leader Nick Nixon, who must withdraw due to a health issue. You can still get your advance tickets to the festival for just $15 at http://bbf2016.bpt.me/
