B.B. King’s Blues Band is the vision of King’s former personal assistant and tour manager, Myron Johnson. After King’s passing Johnson, CEO of MJ Productions & Entertainment, Inc. put B.B.’s band back together and now presents them to the world as B.B. King’s Blues Band. The band is composed of King’s actual band members who were employed by and traveled the world with B.B. over a period of 30+ years until his passing in 2015. It is the band’s mission to share B.B. King’s style and music with the world, to introduce new generations to the Man, as well as the rich and diverse collection of music left by B.B. In short, “the thrill is not gone”. The music lives on and B.B. King’s Blues Band is bringing it to you.
