Mac Arnold got his first taste of the blues when he learned to play his brother Leroy’s home-made guitar at age 10. He joined the Muddy Waters Band in 1966 when he was 24 years old. Now, Mac is going back to his roots and serving up a mess of blues with his own band, “Mac Arnold & Plate Full O’ Blues”. The band consists of Austin Brashier on guitar and vocals, Max Hightower on keyboards, harmonica, guitar, bass and vocals, Quinn McNamara on drums, and Mac Arnold on vocals, bass and Gas Can Guitars. Mac is one of the few remaining old school blues men who puts on a stellar show performing traditional and contemporary original Chicago-style blues. Mac is also an organic farmer and was inducted into the Alabama Blues Hall of Fame in 2017.
