Earl Thomas started out wanting to support the Blues Foundation by giving back his time and
talents as a Blues artist. As his fellow Blues musicians heard about what Thomas was doing, they
wanted to join him. As a result, the show will feature Sista Monica, Syreeta Neal, Lady Bianca,
Kenny Neal, Tia Carroll, King Tuffnstuff, Shane Dwight, Daniel Castro, John Nemeth, Kyle Rowland,
Greg Nagy, Aki Kumar, the Blues Ambassadors and the list is growing.




Thomas explains, “I’m excited to be part of this event, and even more excited to have my friends
join me in supporting the Blues Foundation. I think it is important for all of us to give back to the
music that we love and to ensure that the history of Blues is preserved. I’m also grateful to
VenMundi for helping us contribute 50 percent of the proceeds in support of the Blues Hall of
Fame Museum.”

"The Blues Foundation has been inducting performers and recordings into the Blues Hall of Fame
since 1980 and a capital campaign is well underway to establish the Blues Hall of Fame museum.
We applaud Earl Thomas and his friends for their willingness to step forward in support of our
efforts to bring this long-overdue dream to reality," explained Jay Sieleman, President of the Blues
Foundation.

Charley Lochtefeld, owner of Club Fox reports, “We are delighted to support the Blues Hall of
Fame Museum and are glad to be teaming up with Earl Thomas and VenMundi to stream the show
live to blues fans all over the world. We know they will enjoy the show and the opportunity to

Recognized on four continents Earl Thomas has been called "one of the most important blues
artist of this decade" by the Best of Blues Awards where, in 2011, he took top honors including
Best Male Vocal, Best Contemporary Blues Artist, Best Album, and Best Songwriter. His songs
have been recorded by icons Etta James, Solomon Burke, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, and Tom Jones
as well as contemporaries Janiva Magness, Big Llou Johnson, Tracy Nelson and, most recently,
blues queen Shemekia Copeland on her new Telarc Records release 33 & 1/3. In 2006, the
national blockbuster, In The Mix, starring Usher and the Sundance Film Festival Award winning
Forty Shades Of Blue with Rip Torn both featured an Earl Thomas composition. He scored again
with songs on popular television shows, in 2009 on the hit series E.R and again in 2012 with In
Plain Sight and Bones and with songs on over 500 Blues radio stations in the United States and
around the world, Earl Thomas is a genuine Blues star. He made his European debut at the
renowned Montreux Jazz Festival in 1992 and has built a solid reputation and fan base especially
in Switzerland, Scandinavia, and England. His long running residency at Biscuits & Blues in San
Francisco with his tight multicultural band The Blues Ambassadors is the hot ticket in the Bay Area
drawing regular SRO crowds to the popular venue.
