About Marty Sammon: Marty Sammon was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago. His encouraging family and Irish culture provided a solid structure for Marty to demonstrate himself as a musical prodigy. Without abandoning his roots and being drawn to music that captures the universal joys/pains of life’s experience, Marty’s natural ability and sincere persona was welcomed into a city that is selective to those musicians that are only proven to be aesthetically true to it’s signature sound. By the age of fifteen, Marty was performing with L.V. Banks and absorbing the sounds and lifestyle of the Chicago Blues scene. Shortly thereafter, fate and opportunity would collide.Marty’s talent was quickly recognized by earning the attention of Phil Guy (Buddy Guy’s younger brother). Phil Guy exposed Marty to a funkier, heavier, soulful side of the Blues; an expression Marty could easily translate. James Montgomery of the Chicago Playboys took immediate notice and introduced Marty to Otis Rush. Marty shared the stage with Otis Rush for five years until he received the call to tour the world and perform with Blues legend and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Buddy Guy. For over a decade, Marty has been a member of the “Damn Right Blues Band” and has contributed as a studio musician on Buddy Guy’s most recent recordings. Marty Sammon’s intense playing reaches beyond the basic rules of finger placement and posture at the keyboard; his hands become blurred motions as the rest of his body matches the unpredictability and soul of his improvisation.Tickets Save

“Even with the dominating lineup, the night was about Joe Marcinek. He puts these things together, and it always feels like a party. He shakes hands, hugs and chats with friends and strangers. He makes everyone feel a part — connecting minds via a circular flow of respect and energy. He never steps into the spotlight long or overstays that moment, despite shredding at nearly a standout solo per song ratio. - See more at: http://www.thebarnpresents.com/review-setlist-joe-marcinek-band-martyrs-29693.html#sthash.E2q1NvtO.dpuf”
