Blues Hall of Fame harmonica master Pete Karnes played with many of the Legends, Big Walter Horton, Willie Dixon, John Lee Hooker, Robert Lockwood, J.B. Hutto, Lightnin' Slim – you can hear the authenticity in his voice and playing. Portland’s own “Boogie Man” he still ready to boogie ‘til you drop! Karnes played with many of the legends – Big Walter Horton, Willie Dixon, John Lee Hooker, Carey Bell, Robert Lockwood, J.B. Hutto, Lightnin’ Slim and many other Blues greats. He's a blues harp master, committed to Chicago Blues. During the ‘70s and early ‘80s, Karnes fronted the Pete Karnes Blues Band, which was considered the house band by patrons of the White Eagle. Born in Arkansas, grew up in Ann Arbor (Michigan). As a teenager he moved to Detroit. Pete’s family was Blues affine. He started his professional career as a musician in the 60s. Mid-eighties, he ended his music career to devote himself to the family. The late nineties he became seriously ill, but since 2006 has been active again.               

Karnes released 2 LP's and 4 CD's, including: A Shot and A Back (1975) Dark of the Woods (1978), and Live at the White Eagle (1982). He also was a featured harmonica player on John Lee Hooker’s disc The Cream and his band toured opening for people like Canned Heat, BB King and the Electric Flag. But his life took a wrong turn with his wife being diagnosed with cancer and he found himself moving to Florida for her last years and music took a back seat in his life. Working as a cross country trucker, Karnes was involved in a serious accident in Minnesota in 2004 that found him considered dead for nine minutes, then in a coma for the next five weeks and a five month stint hospitalized. Rehab was long and hard. A couple years later Karnes found the desire to start performing again and began sitting in with acts in Florida, eventually putting together his own band again.
