Mac Arnold & Plate Full O’ Blues

July 11, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Mac Arnold’s first band included James Brown on piano. Yes, that James Brown. Mac moved to Chicago and Muddy Waters hired him on the spot. He toured and recorded with the Muddy Waters Band and recorded LPs with Otis Spann and John Lee Hooker. Mac moved to Los Angeles and produced Soul Train with his friend Don Cornelius. He even played bass on the Sanford & Son television show when he wasn’t playing bass for Otis Redding and B.B. King. He retired from show business to be an organic farmer. In 2017 Mack was inducted into the Alabama Blues Hall of Fame.  With retirement under his belt, Mac is back with his own band and a “plate full” of tunes, building a new foundation in blues, soul and funk.

Mac’s most recent album is 2016’s Give It Away.
