Mark Hurwitz and Gin Creek is a Washington Blues Society Best Blues Act nominee known for maintaining one of the busiest performance schedules of any bands in the Puget Sound region. They play a lively and distinctive mixture of blues styles, drawing on elements of roots rock, funk, and New Orleans R&B. The wide variety of rhythms they play make them a special favorite of dancers. The piano playing of band leader Mark Hurwitz is in the tradition of New Orleans keyboard icons like Professor Longhair and Dr. John, mixed with influences from other classic blues players including Otis Spann, Amos Milburn, and Johnnie Johnson.
