Sam Hooper Group @ BOP STOP

Sam Hooper Group is an exciting Cleveland band rooted in the blues. Originally formed when Hooper lived in Boston, the band has evolved through tours and recording in the USA and Asia to develop its own interpretation of this classic art form. Hooper has kept the approach fresh, since returning to his hometown roots in Cleveland, OH four years ago and performing all over Northeast Ohio. The current band is a mix of talented musicians who are old and new friends with experience in jazz, rock, funk, and blues. The mailing list grows with every performance so the bands influence is steadily growing! Check them out on their newest CD, Sam Hooper & Mike Null, HOODOO BLUES which was the WINNER for 2015 BEST SELF-PRODUCED CD in the Cleveland Blues Society's annual International Blues Challenge competition.

Sam Hooper Group has opened for American blues guitar greats Ronnie Earl and Luther “Guitar Jr.” Johnson and for England’s #1 blues guitarist, Matt Schofield. The group has also showcased at New York’s Soul of the Blues Festival and Alabama’s W. C. Handy Music Festival. Sam Hooper Group was a finalist in Boston’s “Battle of the Blues Bands.” Hooper toured as a featured performer in Chinese recording artist, Zhu Ming Ying’s “Dream of an Artist” tour, playing in front of over 84,000 people in 14 cities. In 2009, Hooper was the Winner of Guitar Center’s King of the Blues, Cerritos, CA Store Finals.
