Rising blues star John Németh brings his soulful blues revue to Orlando Thursday, June 6, Live on the George Linson Stage.  A singer steeped in the tradition reminiscent of B.B. King, Ray Charles and Junior Parker, Németh is also a harmonica player of riveting intensity and virtuosity. For more than a decade his career has found him opening for Robert Cray, Keb Mo', and Earl Thomas and performing major music festivals around the United States, Europe, Canada and Asia, winning him critical acclaim. However, his origins are an unlikely breeding ground for such an impressive blues talent. A native of Boise, Idaho, he grew up singing in a Catholic church and started playing in local bands as a teenager. Then The Blues happened and now Bob Margolin advises "John Németh is a natural-born Bluesman, and he proves it with every note he sings, shaping each one with emotion, taste and inspiration. John's expressive Blues harp playing answers his voice and fulfills his songs when he solos. John Németh makes it sound easy." Greg Johnson of Blues Notes writes, "John Németh possesses rich harmonica tone that easily brings to mind Sonny Boy Williamson and Little Walter ... Definitely one of the finest new artists performing Blues in the country today." Charlie Musselwhite says, "Boy! John Németh can really belt it out!" while Junior Watson explains, "John Németh's voice is a national treasure." John Németh is an experience you will never forget and brings his exception talent to Central Florida Thursday, June 6, live at McWells. Show starts 8 p.m., Doors at 7 p.m, $15-seating is first come/first serve. McWells, An acoustically fine listening room for The Blues located at 4757 S. Orange Avenue in the Fort Gatlin Center [407.855.4006]-is a non-smoking venue, open to all ages with full restaurant and bar and centrally located with lots of parking. It's a no-brainer!
