Release Info: Michael Packer Blues Band - Live At Lucille\'s New York City
The album was recorded live on a steamy August summer night in 2007 at Lucille's blues club on 42nd street, in the heart of Times Square, New York City. They came to play and smoked the tunes like they owned them. 'Born Under A Bad Sign', 'Sweet Home Chicago', Willie Dixon's 'The Same Thing', all spectacularly performed by a magical assemblage of players. Led by Iris Music Group recording artist Michael Packer on guitar and vocals the band consisted of Jimmy Vivino, guitar and additional vocals (he is the Conan O'Brien TV show guitarist and Levon Helm's music director), pianist David Maxwell (James Cotton), Sandy Allen (Michael's longtime friend and partner) on mandolin, blues harp extraordinaire, Felix Cabrera, Ed Jackson on bongos, Japan's finest bass player King Bear, Billy Schroeder on drums and special guest Dave 'Snakeman' Runyan (James Cotton protege) on harp performing his 'Snakeman Blues'. The album was produced by Michael Packer.
