Nola Blue Records announces new album from John Németh and The Blue Dreamers
'Live From The Fallout Shelter: Celebrating 20 Years' slated for February 17, 2023 release
By: Nola Blue Records
Twenty years of writing and performing award-winning blues is a significant career milestone for anyone, but for John Németh it represents so much more. Having emerged from a debilitating case of infectious arthritis in 2019 with the material for his Stronger Than Strong (October 2020) album, only to be knocked back down again and grounded by the global pandemic; then receiving a new diagnosis of a benign but aggressive tumor which required amputation of his lower jaw; all combined as the catalyst for a series of outstanding performances during Németh's Spring 2022 tour. This live recording captures the last show on the tour, described by venue owner William Hurley as "one of the most electric shows we've ever hosted at The Fallout Shelter", and a perfect commemoration of the strength and determination of one of today's most dynamic contemporary blues artists.
"John Németh is gifted with the ability to not only entertain but personally connect with his audience both on and offstage. I know his devoted fanbase will share in the celebration of this career milestone, which is a triumph of both personal and professional resilience,"
Németh says, "I am forever grateful to everyone that has made it possible for this second chance in life. Thank you to Nola Blue and The Fallout Shelter for arranging this wonderful recording. I am looking forward to many more great performances to come with The Blue Dreamers."
Album preorders are available beginning January 27.
Németh will be touring as part of Mark Hummel's 30th Annual Harmonica Blowout beginning February 15, 2023. Visit johnnemeth.com and follow him on Facebook @johnnemethfanpage for all the latest news.
