Mitch Kashmar is one of the most soulful and powerful blues singers in the business today, black or white; his blues harp playing is second to none for creativity, drive and excitement. He's shared the stage with some of the biggest names in blues over the years and they've all known: Mitch Kashmar is a force to be reckoned with in the blues.
His 2005 Delta Groove debut, "Nickels and Dimes," earned him a "Best New Artist" nomination by the Blues Music Foundation. In 2006, Kashmar joined forces with The Mannish Boys as a front man on several high profile gigs. Most recently, Kashmar has flexed his musical muscles on stage touring with the band War. Mitch Kashmar has played throughout North America, Europe and in Russia, winning new fans at every stop.
Kashmar continues to evolve as an artist. Inspired by classic material, he moves in new directions with innovative angles on fresh songs. Add in a quirky sense of humor and a sly wit, along with deep-chested blues vocals that sound natural, unforced, and unlike anyone else on the scene today, and you've got one of this generation's most complete blues artists. His latest album was recorded live at Labatt Blues Festival in Canada and will give any listener a good helping of what Mitch's live performance is all about.
Mitch Kashmar Band have been on the road for many years and their musical styles have a wide range of influences including Chicago Blues, New Orleans R&B, West Coast Jump Blues and Swing, Boogie Woogie, Louisiana Swamp Rock, Texas Blues and straight forward Jazz.
Harmonica master Mitch Kashmar started playing with local bands in Santa Barbara (CA), and in 1980 he formed his own group, The Pontiax. The band performed up and down the West coast, backing blues legends like Jimmy Witherspoon, Lowell Fulson, and Big Joe Turner and others.
The Pontiax broke up in 1989, and Kashmar moved on to a solo career. With his 1999 recording "Crazy Mixed-Up World", he began making a name for himself. His next effort, "Nickels & Dimes", featuring guitar great Junior Watson, was a major step forward. In 2006 he was nominated for a Blues Music Award as Best New Artist Debut, and in 2007 as Best Instrumentalist - Harmonica.
When taking a break from his solo career, Mitch has also signed on for active duty with the latest touring incarnation of the classic 70's funk-rock band War, and even made rock 'n' roll history, when he appearied on stage alongside legendary British rocker Eric Burdon & War for a reunion concert in 2008 at London's Royal Albert Hall.
