SHOW 67: OCT 14-OCT 20, 2016
SUGAR RAY NORCIA
Grammy-nominated harmonica ace, Sugar Ray Norcia fine-tuned his chops with Ronnie Earl backing Roomful of Blues and some of the greatest legends like Big Walter Horton, Big Mama Thornton, Roosevelt Sykes and Big Joe Turner. Today he is recognized as one of the world’s finest blues singers who has recorded on nearly 50 albums and has led New England’s most notorious hallmark band, The Bluetones for 35 years. They are as tight as it gets and have the unique distinction of being one of the few bands where each member has been nominated for a Blues Music award. Their latest effort, Seeing Is Believing, is just the latest in the group’s highly praised collection of work over the last 35 years.
