I've got Blues on my mind. Yes! Blues, Blues and more Blues!

November 17, 2016

 

I’ve got blues on my mind. Yes….blues, blues and more blues.

 

Coming your way this Saturday….The Memphis Bound Concert hosted by Jimmy Adler & Co. at Moondog’s, November 19 at 8 pm. Cover charge.

 

Opening the evening….the Blues Society of Western PA’s Solo/Duo entry in the 2017 International Blues Challenge, Charlie Barath will kick things off with that cool, smooth groove that he has and that killer harp that he totes.

 

The Jimmy Adler Band, the 2017 Blues Society of Western PA’s band entry at the 2017 International Blues Challenge will then take the wheel to drive the show the rest of the evening. Jimmy Adler’s gritty vocals, sizzling guitar and energizing format will definitely WOW you!

The purpose is to raise additional funds to add to their BSWPA’s winnings to help get them to Memphis.

 

Join the gang for an evening of fun. Support your local acts that will be representing Western PA at that very global competition in Memphis, TN (February 1-4).
