There is a big difference between Mick Archer's BLUES 88's and conventional Blues/Rock ensembles. At the heart of their sound is the interplay of 2 excellent singing pianists. If you combine the tight 4-hand keyboard and 2 voice vocal arrangements and high energy of dueling pianos but take out the nonsense and futile attempt to please everybody, and replace it with a true sense of Americana through a deep appreciation and expertise in Blues, Roots Rock'n Roll and Classic Country, you have MICK ARCHER'S BLUES 88's featuring PHIL Baron. Mick met Phil in the mid 90's when they were both involved in dueling pianos but were frustrated that the music was getting more and more silly and didn't allow for any serious approach to Roots Music. Phil Baron is the ideal partner for this enterprise. With Phil's harmonica playing (he apprenticed with two of the greats: James Cotton and Sugar Blue) and Mick's rocking blues guitar playing (he was lead guitarist in KILLIN'Floor, a band featured in Dean Milano's book CHICAGO MUSIC SCENE: 1960's-70's, and later as lead guitarist in THE FACTORY BOYS) they sound like a full band that can get an audience dancing. And they routinely add bass, drums and sometimes soulful female singers to expand their sound.

About Lynne Jordan: 

In a city brimming with classic blues and jazz voices, Lynne Jordan stands out as vocalist, bandleader, solo performer, and storyteller. Not only do her soaring vocals dip effortlessly into blues, jazz, funk, rock, and even country, but her bawdy personality wins over any crowd. Her talent so dazzled crowds at The Second City that the late film critic Roger Ebert declared her his “favorite diva.”

She has recorded with Tom Waits, the Punk group Urge Overkill, and Alligator Records Blues artist Toronzo Cannon. Jordan is included beside Taj Mahal and Etta James on Blues Down Deep, a tribute to Janis Joplin, and she performed in Jazz Operas in Europe. She is known for her one-woman show “A Great Big Diva,” is a featured vocalist with Corky Siegel’s Chamber Blues, and has traveled the world with her band Lynne Jordan & the Shivers.
