Mark Hummel & the Blues Survivors with special guest Rusty Zinn: Blues On The Coast 2009
Arena Theater proudly presents Mark Hummel and the Blues Survivors, with special guest Rusty Zinn, opening the theater's annual blues series. Mark Hummel is a road warrior - a true blues survivor. Along the way, he has crafted his own trademark harmonica sound - a subtle combination of tone, phrasing and attack, combined with a strong sense of swing. Hummel has achieved wide recognition through nearly constant touring and appearances at the major blues festivals which have firmly established his solid reputation around the U.S., Canada and Europe.

Born in New Haven, Connecticut and raised in Los Angeles, Mark absorbed the music of Chicago based harp players including Little Walter, James Cotton and Sonny Boy Williamson, before settling in Berkeley, California in 1972. There he played with local bluesmen, establishing himself as an impressive harp player on the west coast scene. In 1980 he took the helm to lead the popular Blues Survivors Band. Hummel's discography includes no less than 16 discs and 1 DVD. According to Blues Review Magazine, "Mark Hummel is a harmonica virtuoso; quite simply, he is one of a handful of the best players ever on the instrument, and he gets better with each new release."

Mark Hummel is joined by Alligator recording star Rusty Zinn.  Time after time, Oakland-based bluesman Rusty Zinn's raw burning guitar work and soulful vocals leave listeners open mouthed in amazement.  That is, until their feet start to move uncontrolably and lead them to the dance floor, as Zinn's jumping blend of west coast swing/blues and gritty Chicago blues takes over. Born in Long Beach in 1970, Rusty Zinn grew up in Santa Cruz.  He was introduced to the blues at the age of 15, picked up the guitar at 17, and has loved it ever since. In 1993 Zinn met Kim Wilson of the Fabulous Thunderbirds and so impressed him that Wilson invited him to Austin, TX, to record with him and then to join the band. Soon afterward Wilson brought Rusty to the attention of Black Top Records who signed Rusty to the label and released two critically acclaimed solo albums. From the minute he strikes the first chord to the last note, Rusty Zinn leaves audiences everywhere amazed, knowing they've witnessed one of the brightest young blues stars to emerge in years.
