Sam Hooper Group

Guitarist Extraordinaire leads All-Star Group playing Jazz, Blues, & More live at Nighttown!

Featuring: Sam Hooper-guitar & vocals, Sakait Baksar-keyboards/vocals, Ken Bell-keyboards, Derrick James-bass/vocals, & Chuck Orange-drums.

Sam Hooper Group is an exciting Cleveland band rooted in the blues. Originally formed when Hooper lived in Boston, the band has evolved through tours and recording in the USA and Asia to develop its own interpretation of this classic art form. Hooper has kept the approach fresh, since returning to his hometown roots in Cleveland, OH four years ago and performing all over Northeast Ohio.

The current band is a mix of talented musicians who are old and new friends with experience in jazz, rock, funk, and blues. The mailing list grows with every performance so the bands influence is steadily growing. Check them out on their newest CD, “Sam Hooper & Mike Null - Hoodoo Blues.”

Hooper’s newest CD, "Sam Hooper and Mike Null - Hoodoo Blues," was the Winner for 2015 Best Self-Produced CD in the Cleveland Blues Society's annual International Blues Challenge competition.

 

“Without eschewing the gritty soul of traditional blues, guitarists Hooper and Null break stereotypes by sidestepping standard shuffles and stomps for fresh takes on classic tunes that buoy their sweet molasses vocal performances with jazz informed chord changes, rhythms and melodies. And Hooper's original "Itchin' To Be Your Man" has the hip, sophisticated vibe of a lost Mose Allison gem.”
- Ted Drozdowski, Nashville Scene
