We really loved your shows in Anchorage recently. Hope you can come back again soon.

Mr. Studebaker,
Thanks for stopping by Chico Hot Springs in Pray Montana on a Sunday night! This Chicago boy - Montana transplant was in bad need of hearing some authentic Chicago Blues. You and Bob rocked that place like nobody can. Hope I can catch you all next time I'm back in sweet home Chicago. Love the Old School Rockin' CD. It sounds best loud.
Bret De Young

Hi John,
Happy 60th for the 5th November! Short birthday tribute to be featured on Blues at The Table between 10pm and midnight (GMT +2). Finest of blues from Cape Town, South Africa. Thanks for the consistently excellent blues!
Best wishes, cheers,
Tony Storey

Thanks for the great show in Boise this last weekend. So worth the four hour drive! It was great to see you again. We listened to That’s the Way You Do, all the way home!

Studebaker John's Maxwell Street Kings CD "That's the Way You Do" is sensational. 15 tracks!! I'd say it's everything you would ever want in a Studebaker John CD, or any other blues CD for that matter. THANK YOU John, for your effort!

Hi John
Fantastic show at the Blues Can in Calgary on June 3 & 4 2011. Thanks for dropping in for the Jam on Saturday and playing a few songs with Tim Williams. It was great to sit and talk with you. Hope to see you and your band back here soon.
Bob Corlett

Hi John
Great show at Buddy Guy's this week (May 2011). It was a highlight of our once-in-a-lifetime visit from UK to Chicago. Good to talk in the break about your guitar and battered but not-so-old amp! Hope we might see you on this side of the pond before too long.
Ray Palmer

Hello John,
We saw you at the Sunshine Lounge in Boise on Saturday October 17! OMG what a show!!! Anyone that missed that should be ashamed. You are one of the most talented self-taught musicians I have ever heard and it was a real pleasure to listen to you. My husband and I were the couple that sat up front. He too is self taught and was amazed by your show. Thank you so much and we will watch for next appearance in Boise!!
Kind regards,

Really enjoyed you & Melvin Taylor’s (not forgetting Kenny Coleman & Felton Crews) incredible blues revue last night (10/2/09) in Picton, Ontario. My buddies and I were blown away! Come back soon! Reddog,

Hi John...
We seen you last night in Killaloe. What a show!! Thanks for a great evening and if ever you are back in Renfrew County we will be out to see you again. Thanks for including Canada on your tour.
Colleen and Don

Hey John -- great to see you and Bob and Steve at Belvedere Blues Blast. And thanks for coming to the Bullfrog Brewery for the jam afterwards. Pleasure to listen to you, and then to play with you again. I gave your greeting to Don Wilcock, and he hopes to see you next weekend at Mt. Snow. Peace brother.
Chip Lamson (Keyboards -- Tas Cru)

Hey John
Thanks for coming to Salt Lake and playing at Pat's! You made my night. Listening to you play that harp is an amazing thing! I left wanting more! What a talent you have been given! Come back soon!

We saw you in Kelowna on 4 July. What a show! It was fantastic. We're looking forward to seeing you in Winthrop later in the month. Best of luck.
Mike & Cathy

You kick ass. Incredible. John Parmer

I just have discovered your videos on As I have been playing harp for 25 years now, it is not easy to impress me any more. But what I heard there was so beautifull and nasty at the same time that it overehelmed me. Extremely good and soulfull playing. Thank you and keep blowin that horn...
Rainer Sochting aka Harpface from Germany based " Harpface and the Heat"

Just want to say how much we enjoyed you at big cities in Rockford. Thanks for signing c.d. for my brother. We all appreciate you still playing even as your band was packing up. That is something I will always remember. And will take your advice and try to see you play at buddy guys sometime soon. Have a Merry Christmas.

Your show at Brackin's in Maryville, TN was fantastic, and it was great to get a chance to visit, reminisce about Chicago, and hear stories about the musicians you've known and worked with. Hope you get back this way again!
Bob, Oak Ridge, TN

Hi "Little Johnnie", it has been a long time. Hope things are going well. I can't believe you dedicated this new album to my Dad. That is awaesome - Thanks so much. We all really miss him!
Dominick S. Ascone

Hey John,
Here ya all got home to some pretty nasty weather. Glad you could get to Charleston to share your music and enjoy our climate!

Hey, Studebaker John and the Hawks,
Just wanted to let you know what a great time we had at your show in Winnipeg, Manitoba (Canada) last Saturday night. We apologize for subjecting you to our freezing cold weather but thank you for heating up our evening. Your expertise with the guitar and harmonica was amazing, and, combined with those fantastic vocals … well, what can we say – you guys were a marvel. Thanks for giving us such a memorable evening!
Ingrid & Mark

Hi John! My wife and I caught your show at Legends in Chicago this week(8/22). It was great! When are you coming to Baltimore(or Annapolis or DC)? I hope to see you here locally. I'd love to bring my friends. Ken, Catonsvile, MD.

Hey John !! As usual...great music at Big Cities. Thanks for the C D, it was my birthday that day !! My Great Grandson had a blast, he is the light of my life !! See you next time at Big Cities !
Mary Ann

My friend and I just want to say we had a blast at the Cranberry Blossom Blues Fest in Wisconsin Rapids last night. You and the Hawks are truly a talented group of blues musicians. The jam session at Hollyrocks with Cadillac Pete and James Solberg was out of this world awesome, you guys brought down the house!! Heard you're making another appearance at Hollyrocks in August, we'll be sure to be there, we just couldn't get enough of your music. Thank you for the awesome and very intimate evening. We will be talking about this with our friends for months to come. Thank you again!!
John "the Vanman" and Donna "Wisunshine"

Hi John Thanx for coming to Thunder Bay. As always I really enjoy listening to your band live. Bought the Promises of Love cd and just finished listening to it. Its great.Thanks for playing one of my favourite songs. Come back real soon. I'm going to send a note to the festival committee requesting that they ask you to come play at next years festival. Shirley

Got the opportunity to see your performance at Route 33 rythem and brews. Awesome need I say more. Just loved your new CD Between Life and Death. My personal favorite is Between a hard place and the ground. You are the greatest guitar harmonica player I have ever seen. Hope to see you back soon. A fan for life. Bluesman Mark

Thank you guys SO much for your wonderful performance in Wapakoneta, Ohio last night!!! I hope you enjoyed playing there and come back some time.......we'd go again in a heartbeat, and tell everyone.

Dear John,
this is a big thank you for your trip to Blues Alive. Some reviews say that this was the best festival ever and it was also thanks to you. It was great to work with you and I wish you all the best (on behalf of all crew in Sumperk).

yesterday i was in the concert with studebaker and band in "grütli the club" and i heard the best music since a long long time! Thank you!

I saw yesterday your excellent show at the Folk Club in Torino. I was the guy in the first row, we spoke a little between the two parts of the show, when I bought the CDs.
Best and congratulations again for an excellent show. We hope that you return to Italy and to Torino Folk Club.

Loved the show at Moondogs, you always rock the house! I couldn't get through on your website email address, but I'd like to get on your mailing list. We need to see you in Fla. soon!!!-ROBIN

Hey John, just wanted to thank you for the great show in Thunder Bay last night. I bought Self-Made Man from you (my ninth Studebaker John CD) and it might be the best yet. Keep up the good work and I'd love to see you play at our Blues Festival some year.

Hey I just bought my first Studebaker CD - Self Made Man. I love it! I hope you visit downstate Illinois sometime. I would love to hear you live! - Carol F.

We caught your show in Rockford, IL. It was great and we had a blast! I bought your CD (Self-Made Man) and it has earned a place at the front of my CD collection. Not a honor to be taken lightly. :) Thanks for a fun night.

Hey John, I'm sorry. I'm a home town boy and somehow blindly missed your tune. Heard it on XRT and man, your kick'en. I 'll have to see it live now to really appreciate. Keep putting it out there, the world needs you man !

John and The Hawks,
Thanks for the great show at the Seattle Highway 99 last weekend! Your music is awesome - powerful, flawless, and great for dancing! I just ordered Self-Made Man and look forward to hearing it.

Hey John-Great show at Hwy 99, and I love your new CD. Keep rockin'...........................Tim Casey

'Self-Made Man' is terrific. Just put it on the new blues shelf with an A+. Caught John at our local club a couple of weeks ago--great show. Jeff Hayward, WMHB, Colby College, Waterville, ME

Hi folks,
I was fortunate enough to attend Studebaker John's show this past Sunday night at the Midnight Blues Club and Restaurant in Auburn, Maine. As an avid, longtime blues fan and blues beat writer for the local paper, I've seen a large number of national blues acts.
I've seen several great guitarists and many gifted harp players, yet had never witnessed one musician so proficient with both instruments. In a world full of ear-bending rock/blues bands, this three-man unit delivers a lively, swingin' sound that is quite unique and pleasant. Grimaldi's voice is inarguably one of the most distictive in modern blues, and he uses it to his advantage. For blues fans who love that genuine, from-the-heart Chicago sound, Studebaker John & The Hawks are sure to please.
Best regards,
Phil Whipple
Auburn, Maine

Great show in Kearney. We had a delightful evening. The music was powerfully charged and imminently danceable. Don't college kids know how to dance anymore? Hope to see you again and hear more original music. Keep it up. Gregg

Heard you on Midnight Blues. Writing you from Canada and hope you get to Canada sometime. We have a great Bluesfest in Ottawa. Hope to hear you live sometime! Connie 3/18/06

Listened to you 15 or more years ago in Palatine and thought you were ok. The last few years, I have gotten all your cd's and man, what a huge, huge leap from then. I love not only the excellent sound quality now, but your music, especially the words ring close to home and I think you are now one of the best around! I hope to see you perform soon. Here's hoping you perform at Chord on Blues in St. Charles Illinois! Larry 3/1/06

I’m writing from Slovakia, Europe .Do you plan to visit Eastern Europe in the future? I have friends in Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary who like your music too, and it would be great if you could manage a tour in these areas. I hope we’ll see you soon.
Pista (

Love the music. Are there plans to be on the west coast and specifically in the Portland, Oregon area? …the Cascade, Macs, Aladdin?

Happy New Year I'm sorry we missed you at Big Cities this last visit. Too much X-mas going on. Just wanted to touch base and wish you guys a "HAPPY NEW YEAR".Looking forward to seeing you again. I'm going to check your sheduale more often now that I've got this computer thing down. You guys were great the last time and we're (Bird and me of course) are looking forward to maybe making a road trip like Memphis-bb Kings to see you again. That was a gas.
With respect, Judee Rkfd, Il. 12/31/05

Just a note to tell you again how much I enjoyed the show in Rockford. I see you are playing in Kearney Nebraska in January. Perhaps we'll see that show, too. The cd is terrific. Thanks again. Gregg, the guy from Kansas.

Bob Schober 5/18

John got to hear your great music when you were in Nashville. We bought one of your CD’s and it is a mainstay in our daily listening. We just got lucky that night to stroll in where you were playing. We enjoyed ourselves beyond all belief. I wish that I had known about your talent and music 20+ years ago. The best of luck in the future and we will be watching your website to see when you will be in our area again. Thanks for the entertaining evening.
Bob and Anne 4/26

Hey John,
This is Diane, I just saw you last night at Bourbon Street in Schenectady/Col-O-ne. I just wanted to drop a line to say thanks, you guys were great and just the fix I needed.
Watching you play was truly sublime surrealism.... Hahaha, say that three times fast... nice roll on the tongue.
Also meant what I said about Savannah's in Albany. I think it would be a great venue for you and I think you'd really like it there. So check it out, it just might be the perfect stop between Pennsylvania and Maine...ya never know...
Hope to see you again soon.
Keep the peace and passion,
Diane 4/25

Greetings! I am a 1946 Studebaker and will be celebrating my birthday with you all at BB's Jazz, Blues and Soups on May 6th. What a birthday present! We're gonna Let the Good Times Roll.......

Hi John
It was great to see and to meet you at 'The Musician' in Leicester last Saturday. My son Marvin and his girlfriend Rachel bought the tickets as a late mothers day present for me - I'm so glad they did! What a fantastic show you and Lazy Lester gave. Brilliant!
Please try and add Liverpool to your next tour, I'd love to see you again.
Kathleen Phythian Liverpool England KPHypnotherapy 3/30

Dear Studebaker

I was one of the very few at your gig with Lazy Lester on Friday 25 th March in the Village Pub in Leith.
Both you and Lazy gave splendid performances. Please don't judge Scotland on this one poorly advertised and poorly attended gig.
The audience were very appreciative of your talents and I for one look forward to coming to see you at the Edinburgh Blues Festival in August
I hope the rest of your tour is a success, please pass on regards to Lazy (he's a national treasure)
Best wishes and "Haste ye back"
See you in August
Paul Wilson 3/29

We really enjoyed your show in Williamsburg, VA at JM Randalls. We will be looking for your East Coast bookings when you get back from the UK !

Hey John While I know who you are and or have heard some of of your material, Jay suggested I check out your website. REALLY GLAD I did 'Bro.! Will be speaking with Jay later on Friday as I know it is your Thanksgiving Day today - and or this weekend. Looking forward and hoping we will see you up this neck of the woods - Toronto, Ontario. Canada very shortly.

I am proud to say I have seen your act three times now, and each one gets better and better....the last time was at Wonderfuls, and you had Willie the Touch with you...and god forgive me I wish i could recall the bass players name..I mean how many peope do you know that can spank a 6 string bass guitar like that I ask you?I had chills all through the first set! you were on FIRE!!! Such precision, particularly considering the fact that the three of you had only been together for a little over a month, Stand back America, if you three remain together, there will be NO stopping the force that is within you! I had such an incredible amount of fun, and I thought it would be hard because I had quit drinking, and only drank coffee all night, but it was the BEST!
Bless you and keep you safe John, while your traveling abroad..

Absolutely first rate music. You could carry it by yourself, but full sound from "just" a 3 piece band says everyone is a headliner. Glad you could make it to our part of the country--a rare treat for us. Hope to see you eventually on the blues stage at the Bumbershoot festival in Seattle.

Another night of rock solid music. I still marvel at how good John is. Anyone who who has not seen John play live has missed something special. Saturday night in Rochester was just what I needed. Next time he plays in a town near you grab some friends and take the party to John. A hot time will be had by all. Thanks John.

Thanks for playing in the UK. Saw you at 'Hooker Blues Club' in Wrexham, then at 'Colne'. Hope you had a good flight back, and will come over to the UK again. Pity I can't make it to the 'Chicago Blues Festival' this year, but I'm sure 'Pete, Ian & the others' will have a great time. I've just ordered Too Tough, Time Will Tell, Tremoluxe, and Howl with the Wolf, so am looking forward to receiving those cd's.

I've just been listening to the quietly scorching music on Promise Of Love. It's quite a statement of your talent that you carry these songs with such power and warmth in a more acoustic setting. Anyone who loves the blues or anyone who loves music with depth and soul will want to have Promise Of Love. Thank you, John.

I caught your show in Louisville on April 5 and was as impressed with the live performance as I am with the CD music. I bought the live at WFPK CD and it is great also. Can't wait for Studebaker to return. Studebaker John mentioned that one of his mentors is Elmore James which I think he has surpassed and that is saying something.
Crestwood, KY USA - Wednesday, April 09, 2003 at 20:15:35 (PDT)

You've come a long way since Hugh's. Love your music, really like the acoustic CD, Promise of Love, and the 8X10 glossy. Your writing captures the very essence of a broken heart. God bless you!

John - you and the band were awesome this past Sat. night at the Stanhope House! We were sitting at the front table and left after the first set ONLY due to the babysitting schedule - otherwise I would've stayed 'til sunup!
Hope your drummer (Earl ?) enjoyed the shot and beer - he definitely deserved it. I've never seen a cymbal fly through the air like that!!
Why don't you get some gigs at Towne Crier? You give one of the very best live performances in the world!

Just saw John here in the Twin Cities at Whiskey Junction on October 4, 2002. Great show, as always. Look forward to seeing him on his home turf in Chicago sometime in the near future. New album is great too.

I have been listening to John's music for many years and just ordered the newest cd. John has a unique style! My brother was at a blues fest in Florida a couple of years ago and said John and the Hawks were a smash!! John is also a great guy.
Hope he NEVER stops playing!!! I think he has been under rated and not been recognized for his real talent.
Keep going John!

Thanks for a wonderful performance at Jazz Fest on 8/16. Your music is earthy and sensual and your style unforgettable. You never fail to deliver. You rocked our town. We haven't heard blues this good since the old Benjamin days. Your fans have missed you and we hope we won't have to wait a year to hear you again. I'm enjoying the acoustic CD. The lyrics are hauntingly real and the music mellow and memorable.

John, you put on a dynamite performance at Buddy Guy's last night. Both your slide guitar and harp work are amazing! Your voice fits perfectly with the instrmmental work and I really identify with much of your lyrics. I appreciate it when a talented artist puts everything they have into their craft like that. I thouroughly enjoyed it all and look forward to seeing you perform again soon.
