STANHOPE – Don’t expect any old blues music when you see John Németh in concert at Stanhope House this month.

Audiences at the Stanhope House on Thursday, Feb. 21, can look forward to a memorable show marked by thoughtful lyrics and nuanced humor. Doors for the show open at 6 p.m. with openers preceding the main act.

Németh has established himself among the top ranks of blues musicians and modern soul singers and is now throwing out all the rules. Drawing from his roots in blues and R&B, he blends in contemporary influences from hip hop and rock & roll to create a show that holds nothing back.

Growing up Idaho, and later honing his skills in the San Francisco music scene, Nemeth eventually in Memphis, where he quickly became a key player in the city’s rich musical scene. He teamed up with producer Scott Bomar and his classic Memphis Soul band, the Bo-Keys to create an album of revisited Soul classics, Memphis Grease (2014), on the Blue Corn label, which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Blues Chart and in 2104 he won the Blues Music Award in the Soul Blues Male Artist category. Memphis Grease took the prize for Soul Blues Album in 2015. In 2017 he was nominated for a Blues Music Award in the category of B.B. King Entertainer of the Year.

Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 cash at the door. For more information visit http://stanhopehousenj.com/.
