There's a fictional band in the 2001 film Ghost World called Blues Hammer, a satirical jab at commercialized noise that masquerades as blues. Junior Mack is the real deal, and in this acoustic set, he'll show the meaning of the blues to anyone who doesn't already know and dig deeper for those who do. Mack is a driving force behind Jaimoe's Jasssz Band, the jazz and blues side project of Allman Brothers Band drummer Jaimoe. But here, he'll be unplugged—just a man, his guitar, and that hard-earned voice that only comes from truly having lived it.
