Back Porch Blues
A Can't-Miss One-Man Show!
February 10, 2024
Holmdel Theatre Company in partnership with New Jersey Creative Arts Collaborative (NJCAC) is proud to present Grammy-nominated New Jersey guitarist and singer Junior Mack. Junior Mack will take you on a 90-minute musical and historical journey of the Blues from Mississippi to Chicago, with a few stops in between, in his original one-person show, Back Porch Blues. The concert is both educational and entertaining and works for groups of all types.
Through music and storytelling, audiences learn about prominent Blues artists such as Muddy Waters, the "father of modern Chicago Blues," Son House, the famous Delta Blues singer and slide guitarist, and Robert Johnson, the Mississippi Delta Blues musician whose mysterious life and death are shrouded in legend.
Junior Mack picked up a guitar at age nine and taught himself to play. His soulful style is rooted in gospel and blues. Mack was most recently featured on Broadway in Ruben Santiago Hudson's Lackawanna Blues as the show's solo musician. The show was a Broadway Critics Pick for 2021. Junior Mack is a 2011 inductee into the New York Blues Hall of Fame.
