A new collaboration is taking place between Mark Hummel & Deep Basement Shakers, as the two entities have locked forces to commit themselves to rockin' away the pre-war blues & boogie-woogie styles in this piano, acoustic harmonica/vocal & washboard trio.

Grammy-nominated, two-time Blues Award winner, harmonica master, blues singer, bandleader, author, and entrepreneur Mark Hummel has been active since the early 1970s, when he moved to Berkeley from LA. Hummel has over thirty CDs to his credit and also is the creator of the Blues Harmonica Blowouts, which he started in 1991.

Hummel has been steadily touring around the world since 1984....
