Mack in the Wack

World Class singer-songwriter plays Bozzini's August 17

Released by Mano, Bozzini's Restaurant

 

ailing from Saskatoon, Canada, Nigel Mack spent 15 years in Vancouver, British Columbia, before moving to the Chicago “center of the blues world” in 2003.

Through the years, this hard-working artist has toured North America relentlessly, logging over a half million miles, and headlined many top blues venues and festivals in Europe. It was this time on the road that inspired Nigel's 2001 release, ”Road Rage.”.

"As a performer Nigel pays respect to the blues greats who have influenced his music while embracing the modern funk-blues sound commonly heard in the Chicago blues scene today. A prolific songwriter, Nigel's music has been heard around the globe on several internationally syndicated television programs including, ”Time of Your Life” and ”Dawson's Creek.” Although Nigel is most often heard with his band, he performs in a solo acoustic format.

With his 1964 Martin acoustic and a 1929 National steel guitar, Nigel plays music from such luminaries as Son House, Willy Dixon and Tampa Red, in addition to his original tunes."

"Nigel Mack's new recognition is well deserved. Both his slide style and his harp work are refreshingly un-forced, and he struts his versatility on everything from Willie Cobb's jaunty "You Don't Love Me" to Elmore James's searing "The Sky is Crying," as well as his own hard-driving originals." — Chicago Reader
