We proudly welcome back the Tomas Esparza Blues Band to the Potter's Lounge stage. Bandleader Tomas hails from Mexico City - where he soaked up the sounds of the streets and markets of his hometown. B.B. King and John Mayall were his first blues influences....instilling a lifelong love of the blues in this gifted singer and harmonica player. Relocating to Grand Rapids in the 80's, Tomas saw harmonica great William Clarke play live, an event which proved to be a watershed moment. Fast forward to years of working in local bands, and putting his own groups together - and Tomas has opened shows for Charlie Musselwhite, James Harman, and Harmonica Shah, to name a few. His band has performed at Bluesfest International in Windsor, Ontario, at Meijer Gardens in Grand Rapids, and countless other concert series, festivals, as well as some of the most prominent blues clubs in the state. Few harmonica players can channel the energy and feeling of the greats, yet combine their own soul to create something so deep and individual. Tomas was born to play the blues! 'Blues fans' - this is your night....so come out to Potter's Lounge to show your support of live blues music at its' best!
