Tryon Summer Tracks – Mac Arnold & Plate Full O’ Blues
July 26, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Mac Arnold’s first band included James Brown on piano. Mac moved to Chicago and Muddy Waters hired him to play bass. He toured and recorded with the Muddy Waters Band and John Lee Hooker. Mac moved to Los Angeles and produced Soul Train with his friend Don Cornelius. He even played bass on the Sanford & Son TV show.
Mac now has his own Chicago style blues band, Mac Arnold & Plate Full O’ Blues. Mac is one of the few remaining legendary old school blues men who puts on a stellar show. At 76 years old, Mac Arnold’s voice is absolutely amazing and his band is super tight. The band features Austin Brashier (lead guitar, vocals) Max Hightower (keys, harp, vocals) and a rotating list of hot drummers. Mac was inducted into the Alabama Blues Hall of Fame in September 2017.
