About Mac Arnold & Plate Full O’ Blues: Mac Arnold’s professional music career reads like a “Who’s Who” of Blues and R&B Legends. Mac’s first band included none other than James Brown. When he ventured out of the South to Chicago to explore the blues scene there, Muddy Waters hired Mac right on the spot, launching a career in music and television that would span decades. Mac has been nominated three times for best Traditional Blues Male Artist, Blues Music Awards, and just recently received an honorary doctorate from the University of South Carolina. When he’s not touring with his band, Plate Full O’ Blues, Mac just might be found either growing a mess of greens or serving them up in his latest venture, Mac Arnold’s Blues Restaurant in West Greenville.
