Hot off the heels of his GRAMMY® nomination earlier this month, singer/songwriter/musician/producer/SuperStar partner Tom Hambridge was honored once again to play at the Kennedy Center Honors. He played drums for the Buddy Guy performance of the Muddy Waters’ classic “Hoochie Coochie Man” that wowed the entire room. Watch the clip of the show that has just been posted on YouTube. Music critic Bob Lefsetz said Guy’s performance was the highlight of the night and, “Performance is a funny game. It’s he who transcends who is remembered. You can be good, you can be great, but if you can blow us away…And that’s what Buddy Guy did.” Definitely worth a watch!

Producer, songwriter, performer, and SuperStar partner Tom Hambridge is the subject of an in-depth interview over on the Chicago Blues website where he discusses what it is like to collaborate with Buddy Guy and George Thorogood, amongst the many big names in music that he has worked with. Most recently he was at the helm of Buddy Guy’s latest album, Rhythm & Blues, that evolved into a two disc album at Hambridge’s urging. After recording the songs Hambridge called Buddy Guy and said, “We’ve covered all of it; the rhythm and the blues…What do you think about having it be two discs, a rhythm record and a blues record?” After a few other big names in music—Keith Urban, Kid Rock, and Gary Clark Jr, for example—signed on to contribute to a few of the tracks the showstopping, soulful, wide-ranging, Billboard chart topper, and just-darn-impressive 27th album by Buddy Guy was […]

In advance of Quinn’s several New England shows this month two prominent Boston publications have featured the New Bedford native this week. Jedd Gottlieb, reporter with the Boston Herald, previously profiled Quinn back in 2009 when Quinn was just nine years old and he was able to check back in with him from his recent show in Toledo, Ohio.
