Producer, Singer, Songwriter and Harmonica Wizard John Carey is enjoying a musical path that has become a fulfilling cultural journey that has taken him and his music to three different Conti- nents. In the New Orleans scene, the JOHN CAREY BLUES SUMMIT was weekly jam session at Vic's on Tuesdays. On Wednesday night, the JOHN CAREY BLUES PARTY took place at the HARD ROCK CAFE and featured some of the top names in Blues today. John then took the Sum- mit to the Kentucky Theater of the Arts, where He performed with Grammy winner Chris Thomas King and Henry Butler to a SOLD OUT audience. Carey's first New Orleans release, HOT FOR LOUISIANA, featured his funky rhythmic harp playing with such notable backing musicians as George Porter Jr. (Meters), and the Memphis Horns. The tune "People You Love", from HOT FOR LOUISIANA, is also included on the Louisiana Red Hot Records compilation, Blues ~ The Language Of New Orleans. BLUES REVUE MAGAZINE said, "Like Dr. John, Carey splits his musical time between classic Crescent City boogie and contemporary funk-blues, often combining the two with good results. On his latest release, BACK IN NEW ORLEANS , John is joined by his musical partner Piano Bob and a cast of New Orleans best Musicians that include his Son Sean, Johnny Sansone, John Foul ,Eric Lindell, Jimmy Carpenter, Marc Stone and Willie Panker.
