JOHN NÉMETH COMING TO BUFFALO!
John Németh, who's fast become one of the most-talked about newcomers on the scene, will be bringing his riveting show to Buffalo as follows:
FRIDAY, MAY 1ST - 8:00 PM
335 FRANKLIN ST.
Tickets - $8.00
Brimming with energy, Németh's new CD Love Me Tonight re-visits the inspired sounds of the 1950's and 1960's, when Chicago Blues was adding Funk and Rock to the mix. While reinvigorating the sound of vintage American R&B with his spine-tingling vocals and considerable songwriting skills, John has crafted a timeless slice of American music. AllMusic said of the album: "Németh never sounds less than committed to this material and often pushes the performances into the red zone with assistance from a sturdy backing quartet. Whether he's singing or working the harp, Németh is one of the finest young additions to the soul blues scene." Frequent collaborator Elvin Bishop guests on two tracks.
The 2007 release of his national debut CD, Magic Touch, on Blind Pig Records, immediately established Németh as a rapidly ascending star to be reckoned with. Blues Revue called the album, "one of the most exciting blues debuts of the past year." Tom Mazzolini, who's seen generations of blues luminaries as promoter of the San Francisco Blues Festival, called Németh "an incredible talent, one of the new generation of blues that's carrying us on for a long time. This is a major talent in your presence." Blues icon Elvin Bishop, who enlisted John to perform on four tracks on Elvin's Grammy-nominated CD, said, "He's my idea of an up-and-coming blues singer. I don't see a lot of them out there, but I know one when I see him." To hear samples or order the CD, click HERE. Promotional photos are available HERE.
