John Németh & The Blue Dreamers


Friday, 15th at 1:10 pm (Main Stage)

The first time he heard “Hoodoo Man” by Buddy Guy and Junior Wells, John Németh knew the blues would be his path in life. And what a path. The Boise, Idaho native has roamed from Idaho to San Francisco to Memphis, a city rich in musical history that he now calls home. He’s a proud recipient of two Blues Music Awards; a 2014 nod for Soul Blues Male Artist, and in 2015, his record, Memphis Grease, took the prize for Soul Blues Album. This year, he’s on the Feelin’ Freaky tour in support of his latest record by the same name, produced by Luther Dickinson. This new collection of original songs – always punctuated and informed by his incredible harp playing – run the gamut of songs that address societal concerns, to the sheer pleasure of dancing and weed. His band, The Blue Dreamers, give Németh’s songs the drive and energy they deserve. He’s a monster in the blues world, but he’s impossible to categorize. Let’s just say he’s an amazing performer. And you should buy his latest record, Feelin’ Freaky. It’s really good.
