HANS OLSON
HANS OLSON
HANS OLSON is a veteran performing musician with over 40 years in the music business. He began his career as a lead singer in a Rock & Roll band in Southern California in 1967. By 1970, Hans had developed a very unique and powerful solo act.
He plays an amplified acoustic guitar and harmonica. He is known as one of the best "harp-in-a-rack" players in the world.

Hans' singing is very powerful. His voice is comfortable singing many styles of music ranging from mellow folk ballads to growling boogie blues.

Hans' songwriting is one of his most notable assets. He has recorded over 70 of his songs on his 13 independent record releases.

Hans has been a full time performing musician since 1972. He tours all over the world, but most of the time he travels the highways in Arizona where he has an amazing reputation of being a solo act that can rock a nightclub all night long..
NINA CURRI
NINA CURRI
Nina Curri is an outstanding singer/songwriter based in Phoenix, Arizona.
Her music is introspective and real while performing traditional roots blues and originally composed material. After years of performing as a blues singer, Nina has developed the ability to meld songbird-like vocals with a powerhouse blues range.
She has had the opportunity of sharing the stage and opening shows for legendary artists like Ian Moore, T-Model Ford, Hans Olson, The Rocket 88's, Steve D. Reynolds, Jesse Colter, Francine Reed and Delbert McClinton.
Nina is currently in the process of recording her original material which will be released in the Spring of 2013.

Living in Texas for several years allowed her to experience cities rich in music and diverse in talent. Houston’s eclectic venues and 6th street in Austin gave her opportunities to develop as a well-rounded artist. In the Houston blues scene,
Nina shared the stage with legendary artists such as Grady Gaines, Milton Hopkins (cousin of Lightnin’ Hopkins) and the nationally acclaimed, Delbert McClinton.

Nina often performs in benefits for many local organizations with legendary artists such as Francine Reed, Dennis Rowland, Andy Gonzales, Hans Olson and many more. Chico Chism frequently invited her onto his stage and encouraged her to pursue her music. For the better part of 2010, she frequently shared the stage with a fabulous jump, swing & rockabilly group, The Jump Back Brothers in Phoenix, Arizona.

Nina also performs around the Valley through an organization called Chicks with Picks. Since 2007, they have been showcasing local and national female artists in Arizona. Nina was a performer in the first Chicks with Picks festival in 2008 that was headlined by Jesse Colter, Sarah Buxton and Michelle Branch.

Some of Nina’s festival performances include: The Telluride Blues & Brew Festival in Colorado; The Phoenix Blues Society’s Charity Festival, Blues for the City in Arizona; The First Annual Chicks with Picks Festival in Cavecreek, Arizona; The Creamy Radio Acoustic Stage at The McDowell Mountain Music Festival in Arizona 2007; The Chandler Ostrich Festival in 2010 & 2011.
