BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Famous blues singer John Mayall and founder of John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers will be visiting the King Center in Melbourne October 11.
Tickets are now on-sale.
For over 50 years, John Mayall has served as a pioneer of blues music, rightly earning him the title, “The Godfather of British Blues.”
In 2013, John signed with producer Eric Corne’s label, Forty Below Records, and has since been experiencing a true artistic and career renaissance.
This revival continues with the release of a brilliant new studio album titled, Find a Way to Care.
About the new album, Corne says, “I really wanted to feature John’s keyboard playing on this record. He’s truly one of the most lyrical, economical and underrated keyboardists around. We also wanted to change things up a bit after the success of A Special Life and the addition of a horn section on several tracks was a really fun way to do that. As good as the last album was, I think this one is even better.”
Today, John can safely say he’s never been happier with his band and career and the road continues.
