For each ticket purchase transaction, you will receive an Event Registration Confirmed email.  This email is the ticket for yourself and guests (if you included guests in that purchase).  You will need this email on your phone or in hard copy to be admitted to the event. HOUSEHOLD MEMBERS PLEASE NOTE : Guest tickets are in addition to your individual ticket.  For example if you want to purchase a ticket for you and 2 others (total of 3 tickets)  you will be purchasing one for yourself and 2 for each of your guests.  If you've previously purchased a ticket and log back in to purchase 2 more guests tickets you will purchase one for yourself and 1 for the other guest.  I know that 's weird, but that is how this system works.

 Guitar master Albert Cummings fires out of the gate on his debut release for Provogue Records, a dramatic, stylish change of pace that seamlessly blends blues, rock and country in a set recorded at the legendary FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Ala.

============================================================================================================================

Raised in Massachusetts and trained as a master builder, Cummings learned basic guitar chords from his father but then became intrigued with banjo and bluegrass when he was 12. As a teenager, however, he discovered Stevie Ray Vaughan’s early material and was astounded by his mastery. After attending a 1987 Stevie Ray Vaughan/Double Trouble concert during college, Cummings’ entire world exploded as he turned his attention back to guitar, and he never looked back.

It wasn’t until he was 27 that Cummings publicly played with a band for the first time – and that was all it took. He was off and running with his band, Swamp Yankee, serving up the blues throughout the Northeast. After a stunning display of his guitar prowess at a Northeast Blues Society open jam, Cummings qualified to compete in the Blues Foundation’s 1999 International Blues Challenge. A year later, he released his first album with Swamp Yankee, The Long Way, an astonishing, critically acclaimed debut. Cummings’ skill and intensity garnered attention from Double Troublemembers Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon, who were so impressed with this relative newcomer that they produced and performed on his first solo record, From the Heart (2003). Reese Wynans also appeared on the record, and it was the first time that Double Trouble recorded an entire album since Vaughan’s untimely passing.
