Mark Hummel tears it up

Mark Hummel was the "host band" at our Golden Gate Blues Society ( jam ( night and tore it up. He borrowed Rick Estrin (and the Nightcats') fabulous young guitar player Kid Andersen. Kid was Charlie Musselwhite guitar player prior to working for Rick. I think he is 24 or 25 now - came here from Norway. Great guy!

Anyway, Mark rarely uses someone elses' gear, but this night he used my rig which is a Sonny Jr. Cruncher with a BlowsMeAway wood mic with a hot CR element. Although the camera location in this video favors the guitar, not the harp, you can still hear him well - and I felt he never sounded better. I've heard Mark a number of times.

There are more videos of Mark from the same night, by the same guy who posted these - a friend and fellow harp player. You'll find links to the others when you watch this one, which I picked because it has the most harp out of all of them.

Cool stuff. I just became aware of the GGBB a couple days ago when a girl came into my work with one of their t shirts on.Her father is on the board and she told me about the event and we talked about how we couldnt wait till Jason Ricci and Charlie Musselwhite get here :)

I saw Hummel last night. He was playing a Cruncher. He sounded fantastic. After playing Greg's Cruncher multiple times at the GGBS jam, I'm almost sold on it.

The guy who shot and posted those videos is a great guy! He is also extremely handsome.

P.S. Greg - do you really think the Kid is that young? I had heard he was that age when he came here about 5 or 6 years ago.
