Singer-guitarist John Mayall.
Often referred to as the Godfather of British Blues, singer-guitarist John Mayall founded the seminal band John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers in the 1960s.

Over the decades, Mayall's Bluesbreakers have included notable blues and blues rock guitarists such as Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Jack Bruce, Mick Taylor, Walter Trout, Coco Montoya and Buddy Whittington.

Mayall, who moved from England to Los Angeles in 1969, then began forming bands with American musicians.

He's steadily toured and recorded ever since.

John Mayall will perform at 8 p.m. on Aug. 26 at the Kent Stage, and tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Wednesday
