Bringing Drums to the Forefront
A raspy voice, large brim hat tilted to the side, call and response patterns in the music, all provide a depiction of Mudbone Turner.
He is a singer/songwriter, drummer, and performer of the well sought-after Chicago blues for over 30 years. He takes blues, sometimes adding saxophones and harmonica to the basic string band, and creates that foot-stomping Chicago blues sound.
Mudbone Turner has traveled the world performing the blues and sharing the stage with such legendary artists as B.B. King, Buddy Guy, and even the late great Jr. Walker and the All-Stars. He has also toured with Grammy-winning artist Peobo Bryson & Grammy nominated artist Susan Tedeschi.
Mudbone has added the microphone to his drum kit singing lead vocals and stepped from behind the drums performing out front of his own blues band. His much anticipated soon to be released CD entitled "My Kind of Blues" offers riveting, uniquely arranged songs to captivate blues lovers everywhere.
With his love of the blues and his strong desire to perform, Mudbone's mission is to increase the awareness of the blues and continue to share the sounds of some hot Chicago blues with audiences around the world. On his bucket list is performing halftime at the super bowl.
