John Harrelson ( a real surprise and treat. John came all the way from CA and we had met on myspace, having communicated for so long it was really no big deal seeing him as it felt like seeing a real old friend……he was a surprise to all…a man filled with talent and a great voice!!! You must get his CD. We had the sense we had always known John. John can really wail on stage, check him out at
We felt really bad as ones greatest fear in orchestrating any event is that you will forget to mention someone or include someone and John was one of those fears as he had gotten overlooked on Saturday’s jam but really shined on stage at the Depot Blues Club. - On-line Bulletin 10/07

The candle trick
Tonight you can see Ontario bluesman John Harrelson at The Press in Claremont, no cover charge. (Actually, you can see John Harrelson at The Press plenty of nights, seated at the bar, for no cover charge, but tonight he'll be on stage performing. Capeesh?)
Harrelson, the subject of a column of mine a couple of years back, always puts on a fun show. As he promotes it in his e-mail announcement of the show: "Hear true stories about people you know -- See the 'candle trick.'" Ah, yes, the candle trick. What Harrelson does is finish his first set with some crowd-pleasing antics on guitar. He plays behind his head. He plays behind his back. And he lays his guitar on the nearest table, using a candle holder as a capo to play slide guitar. It must be seen to be believed. In fact, you can see it on YouTube. That's John Harrelson and His Fantastic Band at The Press, 129 Harvard Ave., Claremont, starting at 10 p.m. Posted by David Allen on December 22, 2007 6:35 AM | Permalink - David Allen Blog-Daily Bulletin

Absolutely the best Blues album in the last 10 years!!!
author: Craig Rowe
"Masterpiece!" That's what word recalls the first listening of "John Harrelson: Mojave". Repeated listenings offer the depth that only John Harelson can produce. Nods from early Stones, Muddy Waters (w/ J. Winter), Texas Blues, Zydeco, 60's Folk-Country and the modern artists repertoire abound. JWH doesn't copy though...he takes it further. Further than anyone thought possible. Again, if your fan of great songwriting, guitar virtuosity, solid soulfull vocals or just a dammn good blues'll love this album!!! - CDBaby


Still working on that hot first release.
