Boise Blues Society presents fabulous blues guitarist Andy T and his band featuring established Chicago Blues style vocalist Alabama Mike. Playhouse Boise. This is going to be another terrific BBS show!

THE ANDY T BAND was the highlight of last year’s Boise Blues Festival with Andy’s state-of-the-art guitar chops leading the way, and has now joined with powerful vocalist Alabama Mike. 

ANDY TALAMANTEZ – ANSON FUNDERBURGH

The Andy T Band also now includes long sought-after guitarist and producer Anson Funderburgh, who formed Anson and the Rockets in 1978 and has gone on to capture numerous Blues Music Awards. He played a rocking show in Boise last fall with Mark Hummel and others. If you’re a blues fan, you will definitely want to be at this show at the Playhouse. The large dance floor is sure to be hopping, as it was for the recent sold-out Johnny Rawls show!

The group’s new album, “Double Strike”, produced by Funderburgh, will be available pre-release at the show. It’s scheduled for full release in June.

ENTER ALABAMA MIKE

Upon Nick Nixon’s 2016 retirement, Andy T and the band enlisted “Alabama Mike” Benjamin as lead singer. Mike is a dynamic, energetic vocalist who strongly connects with his audience. The group has been extremely well received, a highlight being the 2016 King Biscuit Festival.

Alabama Mike is a true force on the microphone with his first rate, church house tenor. He delivers a sound that will remind you of a young BB King, Buddy Guy, Elmore James, and Little Johnny Taylor.

This pairing is a force to be reckoned with and will not disappoint. This is one of the best touring bands on the circuit and a collaboration that cannot be missed! The band recently completed a new album, produced by longtime friend and often time band member, Anson Funderburgh, who himself played a BBS show this past September.
