INDUCTION AND MUSICAL TRIBUTE TO DAN BROTHER BAND AND J. BLAKE

"The New York Blues Hall of Fame honors legendary, master and great local blues artists from the great state of New York. We have formally inducted artists such as John Hammond, Levon Helm, Johnny Winter to name a few but we also like to keep the focus on the local, in the trenches blues musicians who play their hearts out night after night and give them the recognition they truly deserve." - Michael Packer, NY Ambassador

"A great organization that recognizes the working musician for their achievements" - Prof. Louie (Woodstock Records)

Michael Packer Blues Band

Michael Packer is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist who was born in New York City in 1950. After doing his first gig at the Bitter End in Greenwich Village at the age of 15, he formed and recorded with numerous groups throughout the late '60s, '70s, and '80s, including Papa Nebo (with saxophonist Bob Mintzer of the Grammy Award-winning Yellowjackets), Free Beer, and Coolstep. He also worked with the likes of the Atlanta Rhythm Section, Johnny Rivers, Dr. Hook, Clifton Chanier, and the Matt Murphy Band.

Dan Brother Band

For those unfamiliar with the Hudson Valley Blues Scene, it can be surprising that the region has been home to such renowned blues talent as Bill Perry, Popa Chubby, Murali Coryell and Little Sammy Davis among others. But it was under the tutelage of these master bluesmen, that Dan Brother began his guitar playing and singing career.

Fiery guitar work is Dan's forte. He twists and squeezes notes out of his guitar with furious aplomb, often leaving all kinds of audiences - from young college crowds to older fans of guitar music - with a look of "whoa" on their faces. Unlike so many guitar slingers, he is also a gifted songwriter. His upcoming debut CD will feature a dozen tracks all written or co-written by Dan. These road tested songs - including the crowd pleasing (Plain Ol') White Girl - have already proven to be built on danceable grooves, with memorable sing-along hooks.

J. Blake

Whether it is fronting one of New York City's hottest blues bands or opening for Kiss as an indie-rock guitarist on the side-stage of Jones Beach's Nikon Theater, J. Blake has been a staple of the NYC music scene for a decade; playing on many of the Big Apple's most prestigious stages, including The Bitter End, Kenny's Castaway, Crash Mansion, The Canal Room and B.B. King's Blues Club & Grill.

Over the years, he has played lead-guitar for many notable NYC blues and rock acts and was a founding member of the indie-rock groups Roadkill Breakfast and Stiletto Wheels. These days he is doing what he does best, flying solo and serving up a unique blend of classic and contemporary blues, rock and jazz with a guitar-driven debut album titled When You Coming Home?

J. Blake's sound can best be described as a high octane combination of Chicago & Texas-style blues with healthy doses of rock `n' roll, modern blues-rock, jazz and at times...a touch of funk. His singing and playing styles have been compared to Freddie King and Warren Haynes and he takes great pride in the fact that critics have called his sound "authentic" and the fun he and his band have on stage "infectious."

Nellie "Tiger" Travis

Nellie "Tiger" Travis couldn't be more destined to sing the blues. She was born deep in the delta of Mississippi in the early 60's. As in most small towns, the church was a main focal point and Nellie grew up singing gospel music.Since then, Nellie has come a long way and in November 2009 was crowned the New Queen Of The Blues for Chicago by Bluesman and WVON radio personality, Purvis Spann who previously had bestowed that honor on Ms. KoKo Taylor the original Queen. KoKo was a mentor and friend to Nellie, and when she passed in early 2009, Nellie used her songwriting skills to write and record a tribute song to her friend Ms. KoKo Taylor titled "KoKo" (Queen Of The Blues). This soulful tune was also performed and used to eulogize Koko as part of her last rites and is on one of Nellie's latest albums, I'm Goin' Out Tonight.Today, Nellie has one of the tightest Chicago Blues bands found anywhere in the world comprised of the best musicians from Chicago's Blues scene.
