10 Years of Groove Now - Stars & Friends: The Phantom Blues Band featuring Mike Finnigan, Tony Braunagel, Johnny Lee Scheel (USA) Likely one of the sensations of the 10th anniversary of Groove Now in 2020. Groove Now is very honored to be able to present the Phantom Blues Band, a band that European audiences are rarely able to see as they are all incredibly busy with other projects, as studio and session musicians, and producing. The Phantom Blues Bands includes musicians that belong to the very best in every music genre. They are all legends on their own and have participated in countless projects of the highest caliber. The band has released four records under their own name. When Blues Legend Taj Mahal sought to assemble a studio band for his 1993 release "Dancin' the Blues", little did he know that he had created an entire "sound" that would see the band as headliners at festival, theaters, and clubs in the US, Europe, and Japan. Mike Finnigan is an incredible keyboard player and fantastic singer. Mike got his start playing professionally in 1964 in Kansas. It was during a trip to New York City that Mike recorded with Jimi Hendrix, a session that resulted in the release of the legendary "Electric Ladyland." In 1975, Mike put down roots in Los Angeles where he pursued more group and solo recordings, while at the same time touring and recording with Crosby, Stills and Nash, Dave Mason, Etta James, Dr John, Carlos Santana, Joe Cocker, and Bonnie Raitt. He is twice a winner of a Blues Music Award (formerly W.C. Handy Award) for his work with Taj Mahal. Over the years, Finnigan has also toured and has been a session musician for many other great artists including Sam Moore, Buddy Guy, Manhattan Transfer, Michael McDonald, Maria Muldaur, Peter Frampton, Cher, Ringo Starr, Leonard Cohen, Tower of Power, Rod Stewart, David Coverdale, Tracy Chapman, and Los Lonely Boys.
Tony Braunagel (drums) started playing in Houston, Texas, in the mid-sixties, eventually making his way to England where he worked as a studio drummer for Island Records. In the early eighties, Tony moved to Los Angeles where he found work touring and recording with the likes of Eric Burdon, Rickie Lee Jones, Bette Midler and Bonnie Raitt. In 2000, after several years of touring with Taj Mahal and The Phantom Blues Band, Tony produced the Grammy Award winning Shoutin in Key. Tony is also the recipient of a W. C. Handy Award. In addition to his heavy touring schedule, Tony is very active as a producer. Johnny Lee Schell (guitar) left his home of Farwell, Texas, with his band "Baby" for an adventurous life in music. In the late seventies, Johnny arrived in Los Angeles and began touring with Bonnie Raitt and The Bump Band. He has also toured with Taj Mahal, Ron Wood, and John Fogerty. Larry Fulcher (bass) was born in Houston, Texas, and began his musical career singing in church at the tender age of five. At age thirteen, Larry moved to Southern California and by fifteen, he was already playing in bands. Larry went on to record with Smokey Robinson and The Crusaders, and during the eighties, he toured and recorded (keyboards and guitar) with many reggae artists, including The Wailers, Third World, and Andrew Tosh. He was also a featured vocalist on the Emmy Award winning ABC-TV series, Ill Fly Away and won a Grammy and W.C.Handy Award for his work with Taj Mahal. Grammy and W.C. Handy Award winner, Joe Sublett (saxophone) started his career as part of the 1970s Austin Blues scene playing tenor sax with Paul Ray and The Cobras, alongside a twenty-one year old Stevie Ray Vaughan. The Cobras, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble played a big part in defining Austin, Texas, as the music city it has become in the last several decades. Joes soulful Texas tenor saxophone sound has been heard on records by The Rolling Stones, Taj Mahal, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, Ryan Adams, Chris Cornell, Leon Russell, Elton John, Randy Newman, Gregg Allman, Los Lonely Boys, Keb Mo, Bono, Little Feat, Black Crowes, Bonnie Raitt, B.B. King, John Mayall, Otis Rush, Macy Gray, Buddy Guy, The Crickets, Percy Sledge, Jimmy Buffett, Soloman Burke, Jimmy Smith, Rhiannon Giddens, Richard Thompson, and Bette Midler, among others. Dont miss this musical sensation as you might not be able to see these incredible musicians again especially not in a club setting.
