Mike Hammar and the Nails at Music on the Green

July 16, 2022 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Saturday, June 11, see world-class Blues recording artists, Mike Hammar and The Nails to the Art Park Stage. Native American Hammar – who grew up in Mariposa, and still maintains deep roots here – and his powerful electric blues band, The Nails, have become a staple of Mariposa Evenings, where every year they draw a huge crowd of locals and visitors for what we’ve come to call a “Blues Pow-Wow.” Garnishing a reputation over the years as one of the most exciting, live blues bands performing in California – in 2009 and 2014, Mike and the band won the prestigious Monterey Bay Blues Festival’s Battle of the Bands – their recordings have had airplay on American Roots Music Radio (Norway, England, Germany, Belgium, Canada, and U.S. College radio circuit) and they are regularly featured on Sirius XM Radio’s B.B. King’s Bluesville station. Mike’s song, “This Ain’t Goodbye,” from their second album, “Recipe for the Blues,” was nominated for an Independent Music Award.

Tips for the performers will be solicited, encouraged, and appreciated. All performances begin at 7:00 P.M. (unless otherwise noted) at the Mariposa County Art Park, located on Hwy. 140, between 4th and 5th Streets, in historic downtown Mariposa, CA. Parking is available along 5th Street and the lower 5th Street parking lot for accessible pedestrian path through the Mariposa Creek Parkway entry.
