Andy T. & Alabama Mike at Lorenzo's Cafe
AUG 4th, FRI ~ ANDY T. & ALABAMA MIKE ~
The Andy T Band, fronted by guitarist Andy T, began in 2011 as the Andy T - Nick Nixon Band, with vocalist Nick Nixon. As Blues Underground Network said, “Simply put, Andy T and James ‘Nick’ Nixon have quickly risen to the top of many people’s lists of Great Collaborations.” Their recent release on Blind Pig Records, Numbers Man, was produced by renowned Texas guitarist Anson Funderburgh, and features the great Kim Wilson’s harmonica on one of the tracks. The album was nominated for a 2016 Blues Music Award as “Best Traditional Blues Album”, and the band was nominated for “Band of the Year” by the Blues Foundation.
Upon Nick Nixon’s 2016 retirement, Andy T and the band enlisted “Alabama Mike” Benjamin as lead singer. Mike is a dynamic, energetic vocalist that strongly connects with his audience. The group has been extremely well received, a highlight being the 2016 King Biscuit Festival. The band is looking forward to the Jan 2017 Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise, along with the upcoming festival season.
This pairing is a force to be reckoned with and will not disappoint. Rick Estrin of “Rick Estrin and The Nightcats” stated, “Alabama Mike is a true star, he’s one of my absolute favorites”. This is one of the best touring bands on the circuit and a collaboration that cannot be missed!
