JazzArts Charlotte’s virtual live music series is excited to present a night of blues, with the legendary Mac Arnold and Plate Full O’ Blues.

Mac Arnold has blown the roof off THE JAZZ ROOM and set the Jazz at Victoria Yards night on fire. He’s back with his band, to bring the deep southern blues to your living room.

Blues: A style originating from the deep South, is steeped in American history. It’s call-and-response style is irresistible, and the 12-bar structure and blues scale were a major influence on rock and roll.

Mac Arnold: Mac’s first band included James Brown on piano. In Chicago, Arnolds toured and recorded with none other than the Muddy Waters Band, helping shape the electric blues sound that inspired the rock and roll movement. Moving to LA, his music career reads like a “who’s who” list of blues and R&B: producer on Soul Train, backup band for Otis Redding, B.B. King, and the Sanford & Son TV show. He has shared the stage with Eric Clapton, Big Mama Thornton and John Lee Hooker. Back to his South Carolina roots, Mac is serving up a mess of Blues with his own band, “Mac Arnold & Plate Full O’ Blues”.
