Mike Crandall Band
Mike Crandall Band
The Mike Crandall Band is a powerful original band that plays traditional blues, uptempo jumps and swings. Crandall is a gritty vocalist and master of the diatonic and chromatic harp. His diatonic tone is reminiscent of Sugar Ray Norcia; his lush chromatic tone is influenced by William Clarke. Guitarist Sam Gentile is known as one of the premier guitarists in New England. Bassist Ed Parnigoni played with Roomful of Blues and Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson. Drummer Steve Peck plays regularly with Roomful of Blues founder Al Copley and has played with many other national acts.

“Black Rain”, the band’s debut CD in 2004, drew a rave review Blues Revue magazine: “great tone all around, “harp is thick and creamy without being brash,” “righteous vintage (guitar) sounds.” “The talent level is evident from the opening one-two punch.” Tracks from the CD as well as 2008’s “Just Livin the Blues” received heavy rotation on non-profit college radio stations throughout New England, and cuts have also been played on Sunday Night Blues with Beef Stew on The Rock 106.9 WCCC in Hartford, Connecticut.

The band’s set is always different; they never go on stage with a set list. The Mike Crandall Band’s repertoire is 75 percent original material. Their cover songs include hard driving harmonica tunes by Little Walter, Magic Sam, Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters. The band’s original tunes include “Jump Blues,” “Black Rain,” “I’m On My Way,” “Howlin’ At The Wolf,” “Don’t Let Me Down,” “Listen to Me,” “So Many Times,” and “Out Alone
