Mike Zito and The WheelSeptember 17, 2016
Mike Zito and The Wheel: If multiple Blues Music Award winner Mike Zito had a dollar for every mile of tarmac he’s burnt since his breakout in the early-’90s, they’d be piled up to his chin. “There’s just something in me,” considers the solo bandleader and Royal Southern Brotherhood co-founder (with Devon Allman and Cyril Neville), “It’s there in all
musicians. You gotta love the road to be a part of this world. You’re right there, looking in people’s eyes, swapping stories, shaking hands. In my band, The Wheel, if you’re not already with us, you’d better get on board,” he grins. “Because otherwise we’re gonna knock you down!”
Listening to Zito is like listening to a jukebox loaded with sweet southern Americana: he plays hard, slide-driven blues, sweet rocking country and soulful r&b. It is no wonder his live shows are enjoyed by such a wide range of audiences across the world. We are very lucky to be able to have him play for us on Saturday night, right after he headlines Harvest Jazz and Blues on Friday…and especially for a free show! We hope to see lots of you out there.
