Golden State - Lone Star Revue is a cross country blues hoe down of California and Texas musicians.
Mark Hummel has released 17 albums and produced the Blue Harmonica Blowouts since 1991 featuring the genre’s top players.
"Mark Hummel came of age in the early 70s, at the height of rock and roll, like many of his peers went and bought a harmonica and hasn't stopped playing since. A specialist in West Coast Blues he's a seasoned showman who knows more than a thing or two about how to please an audience." - THE NEW YORKER
Little Charlie Batty is former leader and masterful guitarist from Little Charlie & The Nightcats who recorded 12 albums plus toured the globe for over 25 years.
"Little Charlie Baty plays as much guitar as Eric Clapton and Buddy Guy put together. He is one of the swiftest, most fluent guitarists working in any genre." - The Village Voice
Anson Funderburgh has earned the respect of artists like Delbert McClinton, Boz Scaggs, Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughan, calling on Anson to for his tremendous guitar talents. In addition to recording with the T-Birds, Anson spent many years on the chitlin’ circuit accompanying the likes of Elmore James and Robert Junior Lockwood.
"Funderburgh remains a musician's musician. He'll explode into a fiery and melodic solo, and then seamlessly recede into a song at just the right moment to propel the rhythm...he makes sure the songs both breathe and burn." - Blues Revue
"None of the younger crop of blues guitarists come close as Anson does to achieving the classic Stratocaster tone defined by Otis Rush in the '50's and Magic Sam in the '60's.” - Guitar Player
Rounding out the Revue are RW Grisby on bass and famed Texas drummer Wes Starr.
Opening is James Day & The Fish Fry pumping out Jump Blues and New Orleans Grooves!
