“The blues is best served up live, with an enthusiastic audience and a killin’ band, and that’s exactly what guitarist Albert Cummings does[...]. Cummings effortlessly shifts from chimney subdued stylings to raucous roadhouse raunch to soaring yet stinging lead lines, driving his audience to frenzy in all the right places.” – Guitar Edge Magazine Albert Cummings writes, plays and sings the blues like nobody else. He has played with blues legends B.B. King, Johnny Winter, and Buddy Guy. Taken with Albert’s fire and passion bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton, of the band Double Trouble, the late Stevie Ray Vaughan’s rhythm section, volunteered to play on and produce his solo debut recording, 2003’s self-released From the Heart.

CEDRIC BURNSIDE is an extremely talented musician and songwriter who happens to be a living legacy of the great R.L. Burnside, 4-time Blues Music Award winner, and Grammy Nominee. This is a very unique and authentic Mississippi Hill Country Blues band that is guaranteed to make you shake your bones.

Cedric plays the top 3 strings as the bass line, the bottom 3 mainly for rhythm guitar and solos while the drummer plays a double-time or triplets, and they both sing, so it sounds like there is 3 or 4 people on stage, but it’s only 2.

In addition to “Big Daddy,” he has also played and recorded with countless musicians, including, Junior Kimbrough, Widespread Panic, Jimmy Buffett, and Hubert Sumlin, among many others. In 2006, he was featured in Craig Brewer’s critically acclaimed feature film Black Snake Moan , playing drums alongside Samuel L. Jackson. (The film is a loose tribute to R.L. Burnside, and gives many nods to the late bluesman.)
