John Lee Hooker Jr., grew up in Detroit, Michigan as the son of one of the greatest blues and legendary music icons in the world, the late and the great John Lee Hooker (1971-2001). He is a musical artist who has received multiple awards ranging from The California Music Award for Best Traditional Artist in 2004, the esteemed W.C Handy Award in 2004, and the Bay Area Music Chapter for Come Back Artist of the Year. The younger Hooker's musical style is markedly modernized; featuring contemporary arrangements with a funky big horn sound with elements of funky Gospel, with ingredients of a Johnny "Guitar" Watson sound, with a James Brown feel, and some John Lee Hooker Sr. Boogie Beat, and also with his Daddy's work ethic, "Give the People what they want."
Hooker's touring band includes on (Bass) Frank "Tebo" Thibeaux, Jeffrey James Horan (Guitar), Mike Rogers (Drums), and James Gig Anderson (Keys), Ric "Mightybones" Feliciano on Trombone, Doug Rowan on Saxophone, and Stephen Kleuth on Trumpet.
Today he offers inspiration to others who have traveled the dark side, from juvenile delinquents to death row, and offers them a story of second chances, rebirth, and redemption. Music is in his mind, and the Gospel is in his soul.
