Guitarist/vocalist ‘Big’ Frank Mirra’s specialty is slide guitar. He has performed with blues legends Hubert Sumlin and Moose Walker and has been inducted into the New York and the New Jersey Blues Halls of Fame. The Healers, established in 1990, have been cited in publications as far afield as Austria’s ‘Blues Gazette’. Local favorites, they specialize in blues of the Chicago, Delta and Texas traditions.
Harmonica player Mike Smith began playing harp when he was 6 years old. Although he would learn a variety of instruments, he chose the harp as the vehicle that best expresses the music inside him. Mike has played with numerous blues, rock and country bands over the past four decades, and has shared the stage with the likes of James Cotton, The Subdudes, Little Sammy Davis and John Herald. He considers his current position with Big Frank & The Healers as providing him with the most artistically rewarding 5 years of his playing career.
NEXT MONTH’S LIVE BAND: September 28th will feature King Solomon Hicks.
* Live music nights take place on the last Friday of each month. At La Nacional, we have a fully stocked bar and a bartender on staff all night, exclusively for our party.
