In 1998 “Little Big Man”, produced by Manson’s old pal from his NYC days, Eric “Roscoe” Ambel (Del Lords, Steve Earle, Yayhoos), was released on Paradigm Records. That same year, the Italian label “Club de Musique” released Manson’s independently produced “One Horse Town”, marking the beginning of Jono's European career. Jono has toured in Europe every year since, particularly in Italy where, to date, nine of his albums have been released. These titles include Under the Stone, Summertime, Live Your Love, Gamblers (with Paolo Bonfanti), and November.
This is an amazing collection. Jono spans the musical gamut and creates an "album" of love songs, social commentary and downright party music! This is a winner, and the under-recoginzed Manson should be given his props. I highly regard the album and listen to it at least once a week! No Strings is the best break-up song ever written!!

In the summers of 1995, 1996 and 1997, The Jono Manson Band, was a featured act on the national H.O.R.D.E tour alongside Sheryl Crow, Dave Mathews, Taj Mahal, Lenny Kravitz, Neil Young, Ziggy Marley, Wilco, and many others. When not on the road with his own band, or as the lead singer for “High Plains Drifter", he could (not surprisingly!) be found working the clubs in and around Santa Fe. In 1996, Jono's music was featured in the Farrelly Brothers' film "Kingpin", and in 1997 actor/director Kevin Costner called on Manson to write and produce music for his post-apocalyptic epic "The  Postman".

Charismatic and handsome DEACON JONES is an underground legend wildly popular in Europe and South America, but one of the USA's best kept secrets.

A true "musician's musician," Deacon has been mentored by the best: twenty years with the revered "King of the Boogie," JOHN LEE HOOKER, serving as his emcee, bandleader, merchandise executive, and of course, organ player.

Before working with "Hook," Deacon put in stints working with CURTIS MAYFIELD, FREDDIE KING, and seminal Chicago blues band, "BABY HUEY AND THE BABYSITTERS."

Having toured around the world for some forty odd (VERY ODD!) years, DEACON JONES has acquiered an enormous and loyal fan base around the globe. He has played in more than twenty countries, every continent of the world except Africa -- where he hopes to soon conquer also.

He has recieved numerous prestigious awards, as well.
A five time winner of "Keyboard Player of the Year" from various blues organizations, he has also recieved a prestigious cultural contributor award of excellence in Brazil, and had an official "DEACON JONES Day" proclaimed by the Argentine congress in 2002.

DEACON JONES has been called "the AMBASSADOR of the BLUES" for his good works spreading love of blues music abroad.

JOHN LEE HOOKER gave DEACON JONES his proudest accolade:
when asked his opinion of the greatest blues organ player in the world, HOOK answered unequivocally: "DEACON JONES."

Jo Hell started playing in bars in the Montreal (Canada) area at the age of 16. After two years of playing jam nights seven nights a week, Jo Hell decided to start his own band, which he names "Jo Hell & The Red Roosters". As the years went by, the number of shows increased and the demand for the band became more and more obvious. They appeared at several festivals and the local popularity of the band began to shoot to the top. Many articles in the local newspapers, their appearances at local radio stations and television, as well as on numerous websites confirm the charisma of the band. "Jo Hell & The Red Roosters" came to Austin for "SXSW" in March of 2006. They graced the stage of Nuno's on 6th and were promptly featured at the "Red, White and Blues Festival" at "Waterloo Park" in July of 2006. Since that time the Jo Hell band has recorded 3 new albums: "Jo Hell" (self-titled) (2008), "Live At The Pjeireblues" (2011) and the newest - "Rockin' Land" (2013).

Lazone Bramlett (Bekka) was born to Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett.The Bramletts were a successful duo in the early 70’s, having gained fame by blending a unique combination of country, rock and roll, gospel, and R&B. They performed along with the musical geniuses of their era, and hit the top of the charts. Delaney and Bonnie go down in music history with vocal and writing credits of hits like “Only You Know and I Know”, “Superstar”, etc. It is little wonder that Bekka finds herself in the musical world she lives in today.
Growing up in a home where the likes of Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Roger Miller, Tina Turner, The Rolling Stones and George Harrison might turn up at a moment’s notice, and stay as houseguests for days on end, was the norm for this young lady. Bekka was only four when she sang on her first record at United Artist Studios in Hollywood, California.
Bekka, who replaced Stevie Nicks in the Iconic band FLEETWOOD MAC, from 1993-1997, earned her rightful place in history with her musical prowess. Her forward-thinking attitude and sound had her recording duets with the likes of Billy Joel, Joe Cocker, Rod Stewart, Dwight Yoakum, Vince Gill, Johnny Lang, the legendary “Soul Man” (Sam and Dave), Sam Moore, Bad Company, Kenny Rogers, John Waite, Delbert McClinton and more.

“I had been a fan of Chain since day one and regular guitarist Phil Manning was ill so Matt Taylor gave me a call, I had just left Rose Tattoo and was a little undecided about it at first, but once we started the first tour I loved the opportunity to play Blues, although it took a while to play a more subdued style after years of heavy rock. Phil Manning decided not to return to the band so Matt asked me to sign up permanently well at least for the next 4 years!” Albums recorded during this period include ”Australian Rhythm and Blues” and ”Blue Metal”. –John Meyer

Over 40 musicians have been a member of Chain, one of Australia's premier blues bands that has been going strong for over three decades.
Formed from the remnants of Perth band the Beaten Tracks in 1968, the Chain were named by singer Wendy Saddington after the classic soul track "Chain of Fools." Saddington soon left and the band released one of Australia's first progressive blues singles, "Show Me Home," in 1969. Soon after, the Chain shortened their moniker to Chain. In June 1970, Chain recorded the classic live album, Live Chain, at Caesar's Palace discotheque, and along with other Australian acts like Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs, Carson, and the Adderley Smith Blues Band, were considered at the forefront of the Australian blues movement.
Signing a new deal with Infinity, the blues subsidiary of Festival, Chain released the single "Black and Blue," which reached number ten on the national charts in May 1971. The classic album Toward the Blues peaked at number six in 1971 and is considered one of Australia's greatest blues albums. The follow-up single, "Judgement," established Chain as the nation's leading progressive blues band. Chain Live Again was released in October 1972 and Chain went on to appear at the first Sunbury Festival in January 1972.
In 1973, the band singed with the new Mushroom label and issued the Two of a Kind album. Chain's rotating lineup broke up in 1974 and Mushroom issued the retrospective History of Chain album. Six years later, interest in Chain was still strong and they played at the Mushroom Evolution Concert in January 1982 to celebrate Mushroom's tenth anniversary. They re-formed permanently in 1983 and released Child of the Street in October 1985. Their next album, Australian Rhythm and Blues, was released in April 1988, followed by Blue Metal in May 1990. Several members undertook a tour of Australia in 1991 as Blues Power, while another member, Matt Taylor, toured as Matt Taylor's Chain, who released the album Walls 2 McGoo (Trouble in the Wind) in 1992. The original Chain again undertook a national tour in 1995.

The blues is one of the great American contributions to the world. It reaches down to the heart of the human condition in the most direct way and transcends all boundaries. It is the truth and we know it when we hear it. We are lucky enough to have some of these original blues artists still with us to share the music in it’s purest form. CeDell Davis is one of those artists. At 90 years old he is living history. I am very excited to bring CeDell Davis to National Sawdust for this very special performance.
Legendary Bluesman CeDell Davis returns with the finest album of his career, "Even The Devil Gets The Blues." At 90 years old, CeDell Davis has made THE album of his best original songs, stories, and blues classics, all of which were recorded and produced in Seattle by Screaming Trees/Mad Season/Tuatara drummer Barrett Martin. The backing band features several Seattle music legends such as Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, REM guitarist Scott McCaughey, Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin, saxophonist Skerik, and a slew of other jazz and blues musicians. This is the defining album of CeDell's extremely long career and he's got the best players backing him up. To be released worldwide on October 14th 2016 on Barrett Martin's imprint label, Sunyata Records.
