John Mayer may be a hot Alternative Rock musician from the icy north but he is a true Texas Blues master. In fact on John Mayer's albums, which are excellent, we only get a really good taste of what a true guitar virtuoso he is. It is at his live performances where the true John Mayer shows himself. However, you will see in the performance of the John Mayer Trio not only some great additional talent but also a stepping away from Mayer's solo style, toward what Mayer himself describes as 'in-your-face blues.'
Joining John Mayer to form the trio are Steve Jordan, who has worked with Bruce Springsteen and with the Rolling Stones, on drums and Pino Palladino, bassist, who has played with the Who and Jeff Beck. They originally came together to perform in a benefit to aid victims of the tsunami of December 2004. As they rehearsed how they would cover Jimi Hendrix's 'Bold as Love' for the show, they realized that, as Mayer stated, 'everyone in the room just knew there was something special'¦So it became a band.'
The fall of 2005 has found the John Mayer Trio touring North America. The tour includes the recording of a live album, plus three appearances with the Rolling Stones, as well as yet another benefit concert'”this time joining Tom Waits, Dave Matthews, Joss Stone, Trey Anastasio, and many others in raising funds to help victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Clearly this group came together and then stayed together for a reason. Don't miss this opportunity to be part of the crowd being captivated by the emotion, skill, and power of the John Mayer Trio. Get your tickets now and give yourself that experience.
