John B. Main‘s new Album! At the end of an awesome time in Wolfville, ’round summer 2017, John and I shared the same horn section and various other stage pals. This album is like an audio photograph of that period in his career, with a group of established and new fellow musicians… A sample of the vibe Continue reading Blues On Mainstreet (John B.
