Born in Caribbean, on the island of Antigua, Calvin grew up in London, England. He taught himself to play piano, ukelele and acoustic guitar, later switching to bass. He began traveling in England and Europe with various soul and R&B bands. He started writing and recording with Eddy "Electric Avenue" Grant, then of the English group, The Equals;while also playing with guitarist Junior Marvin of Bob Marley & The Wailers, where he got the nickname 'Fuzz' by playing his bass through a fuzz box. He formed the first all-black power trio in England, The Sundae Times, scoring a top ten hit in Israel with a song called "Abba Abba", written and produced by Eddy Grant for the album, "Us Colored Kids." The band included singer/guitarist, Dell Richardson and drummer Conrad Isadore. This led to the making of Stephen Stills' first two solo albums STEPHEN STILLS and STEPHEN STILLS 2 which included superstars Jimi Hendrix, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, The Memphis Horns, Mama Cass, and Rita Coolidge, During this time he worked and lived with P.P. Arnold for six years, performing under the name Axis. While working with Stills a big break came, getting him a position with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. With CSNY he toured the United States, recored their legendary live album, Four Way Street, and also performed on their classic single, "Ohio." Working sessions between London and Los Angeles, he became part of Stephen Stills band, "Manassas," with Chris Hillman, Dallas Taylor, Joe Lala, Paul Harris and Al Perkins, cutting the epic 1st double album entitled "Manassas," and the follow up lp, "Down the Road." "Manassas" toured for three years, in the US and abroad, to rave reviews for their diverse mix of music, they covered the gamut from blues, to bluegrass, folk, rock and a sprinkling of country. They were hugely innovative at the time. In the later 70's he also performed with the group America and appeared with Neil Young in his concert movie "Rust Never Sleeps." In the 80's he wrote and recorded songs with Marianne Faithful along with Steve Winwood. Later he joined the Alvin Lee Band along with Mick Taylor touring for over six years. For Taj Mahal, he worked on the Broadway musical, "Mule Bone" written by Langston Hughes and Zora Lee Hurston, with music composed by Taj starring blues man Kenny Neal. Now he is performing solo on the Bouzouki a World Beat blend of Blues, Reggae, Calypso, Classic Rock and African folk songs.

I will be joined Saturday night by two accomplished musicians. Don Beyer on bass, and Chuck Mauk on drums, who (I think) are one of the best rhythm sections you're likely to hear. We're working on a CD of original tunes which we'll perform, along with a variety of familiar songs. Looking forward to a fun filled evening, hope to see you all there.
A former member of the bluegrass band the “Diamonds in the Rough,” I’ve been playing music in different genres for many years. Beginning with a rock and roll band during high school days, and moving to acoustic folk rock and an emphasis on songwriting throughout the college years. After a middle age hiatus, the past fifteen years have been busy with several musical endeavers.Am currently playing in an acoustic duo with blues harmonica player Dan “Mudfoot” Hubbs, playing occasionally with a group of fellow songwriters from Bowling Green called the “Long Lost Brothers,” working on a jazz / swing trio with an upright bassist and a trumpet player, and of course playing solo gigs.I enjoy trying to cover those songs that are familiar, but not heard that often. The goal being to hear people say, “That’s a great song, I haven’t heard that forever.” Songwriting, however, will always be my first love. and to that end have been writing many things the past few years.

Mahan’s bread-and-butter is elegant, graceful and often poetic Americana music, with songs built around his sturdy acoustic playing nd imagery-laden lyrics. On Daydream, there are some of Mahan’s best ever songs in that style (the minimal title track and the slow-burner, “Fireflies”), but the rest of the album shows that he is not limited to any one specific “genre” when writing. Calypso rhythms imbue “Mento” with a sassy strut, sounding like a weird mesh of Graceland-era Paul Simon and neo-Eastern European revivalists like DeVotchKa, while “Wink ’n’ a Smile” closes the album on a playful, sunny Pop note. Producer Brian Lovely helps achieve a crisp sound that allows the songs to breath and the musicians that flesh out the arrangements (with everything from strings to drums) perform flawlessly. Thirty-Five-Cent Daydream sounds as good as any “Roots” album you’ll hear this year, local or otherwise. Here’s a prediction for ya — local NPR affiliate WNKU is going to play the shit out of this one. Other programmers would be smart to follow suit. -Mike Breen, Cincinnati CityBeat
