John Nemeth Returns to Boise 

Friday, March 30 at Egyptian Theatre

John Nemeth is a blues and soul traditionalist. Rather than working to update or expand the genre, he puts a modern twist on the time-tested formula of 12-bar blues, with wailing harmonica, a powerfully deep singing voice and a smooth rhythm section.

Nemeth is a Boise native, but he now resides in the Bay Area. His Boise performance is nestled between showcases in Portland, Ore., and Seattle, and a week-long residency at the Hog's Breath Saloon in Key West, Fla.

Nemeth's most-recent release is 2010's Name The Day!, an album of upbeat, retro 1960s-style blues and soul.

Nemeth's impressively large, swanky voice and riveting harmonica skills are sure to reverberate generously throughout the Egyptian. In the past, Nemeth has shared the stage with blues stars such as Robert Cray, Keb' Mo' and Earl Thomas.
