Blues vocalist and harp player John Németh is playing clubs on his current North American tour to promote his latest album, “Memphis Grease.” Originally from Boise, Idaho, Nemeth moved to San Francisco in 2004 for the blues and relocated a year ago to Memphis for the soul.

John is backed up by the Bo-Keys, a crackerjack studio band he took on the road with legendary soul singer Percy Wiggins. It’s a great way to hear Memphis blues and soul in your home town!
