One of the hardest working guitarists in New Orleans, Steve Mignano blends a powerful command of blues guitar with soulful R&B vocals and a distinctively New Orleans groove. Steve connected with the blues at an early age when he discovered his father’s gold-mine collection of vintage vinyls, among them classic albums by BB King, Albert King, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, The Allman Brothers, Dr. John, Bobby Blue Bland and Paul Butterfield – some of Steve’s biggest influences to this day. Since beginning his professional career at age 21, Steve has toured nationally and internationally opening for and sharing the stage with a host of top-tier artists.
