SAUCE BOSS

WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 6th 2013 - 10 PM

Known for his combination of Gumbo slingin' and rootsy mix of blues, r&b, & rockabilly - flavored music, Bill Wharton makes a living out of what he loves; food and music. Although a blues-playing chef might seem like a gimmick, all Wharton's reviewers make sure to point out that "while [Bill] doesn't take himself seriously, he does take his music very seriously, and he deserves to heard by a wider audience". Join us at Terra Blues for one of this Tallahassee resident's fun-filled, toe-tapping nights --- if you're lucky, you might walk out with one of the Sauce Boss's signature flavors...

Beareather Reddy

BEAREATHER REDDY

FRIDAY FEBRUARY 1st - 7 PM

This Georgia native says it best herself:

“I am a champion for the blues,” explained Ms. Reddy, “I want to create a place for people who love the blues. This mission is one of love for a wonderful art form. It is my attempt to celebrate and pass on the importance that blues music plays in our rich heritage”.

HAZMAT MODINE

FEBRUARY 9TH AND 23RD, 2013 - 7 PM

With dueling harmonicas, a scintillating sousaphone, and the mysterious sheng (the ancient Chinese mouth organ), the band runs the gamut of genres and instrumentation. Most of what they play are originals, but keep an ear out for cover versions of "Slim Gaillard, Jimmy Rogers, Jaybird Coleman, and Irving Berlin." Lead Wade Schuman will send the audience home humming & stomping after the romping, dynamic and passionately unique experience that is Hazmat Modine.

FRANK MOREY

FEBRUARY 2nd, 2013 - 7 PM

Frank Morey has been enticing international audiences with his "witty, gritty blues" since the 1990's. (Boston Globe) This New England native serves up performances of both covers and originals on his acoustic guitar and harmonica "with true skill at storytelling and singing". (Well Rounded Radio) While Tom Waits seems to be his most common comparison, Morey draws from a wealth of influences ranging from Louis Armstrong, Howlin' Wolf & Ray Charles to folk greats Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. If you thought you knew folk rock --- think again with Frank Morey's unconventional & "eminently hummable" performances! (Minor 7th)

BLIND BOY PAXTON

FEBRUARY 3rd AND 21st, 2013 - 7 PM

Jerron Paxton, a native of California, has taken to beguiling New Yorkers with his "old time music - Appalachian and Cajun and blues - playing guitar, banjo & fiddle". (NYTIMES) Although only in his 20's, Paxton handles the music and the stage like a seasoned professional, bringing the audience back to the '20's and making them wish they could stay for good.

BEX MARSHALL

WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 27th 2013 - 7 PM

Straight from Devonshire, England, Bex Marshall is  "a woman who plays guitar like a goddess, sings like an angel, writes like Dylan and smiles like the devil" (Booker T) Bex' guitar work garners constant praise from the likes of Blues Matters UK, LA Weekly, & Folk & Roots Magazine UK, however, it's her voice that most claim as her "stand-out" feature. With a  voice that  "draws up the ghosts of old blues women's heartaches" and maintains the "essential vocal frailties that make the difference between soul and soulful" Bex Marshall is sure to accrue fans the same way she did on the other side of the pond --- with her "spit and sawdust vocals and fluid resonator guitar licks..." (Outlaw Magazine) (Folk & Roots Magazine UK) (Classic Rock Magaine UK)

BOBBY RADCLIFF

 

Growing up in Maryland, Bobby Radcliff began his guitar education with classical guitar lessons at the age of 12. Following his initiation into the music world, Radcliff moved to New York City in 1977 where Black Top records took a liking to his “strengths as a soloist, as well as a funky rhythm guitarist”. (WFLR-FM) Having toured the US, Canada, and Europe more than a dozen times Radcliff always leaves audiences stunned with “his jaw-dropping skills as a guitarist.”

(Blues Review)


BOBBY BRYAN

An opening talent for Albert Cummings,  Shemekia Copeland & many other nationally recognized artists, this California native has been captivating audiences with his brand of "urban blues" for over 20 years. Bobby is a another successful blues product of Los Angeles's most famous blues club, Babe's & Ricky's. After playing with the house band for years, Bobby was taken on tour with "Arkansas" Larry Davis, an influential Grammy  award-winning blues artist.

STEVE GUYGER

Claiming the harmonica as his instrument of choice, Steve Guyger has been studying the blues since his teens. Mastering the intense grittiness of Chicago-style harp playing landed Guyger one of his best gigs in 1980; a call from Jimmy Rogers. Blues Access magazine claims, "All the years ... of touring with the legendary Jimmy Rogers has made Steve Guyger one of the greatest blues harp men in the world." Guyger's performances are enhanced by his fine clear voice and his preservation of harp tradition with a unique and refreshing twist!

STEVE GUYGER AND BOBBY RADCLIFF

Both east coast born Steve Guyger (Pennsylvania) and Bobby Radcliff (Maryland) are working together to keep Chicago blues tradition alive in NYC. Guyger and Radcliff, each having been influenced by blues legends Jimmy Rogers and "Magic Sam" respectively, are two veterans of the circuit that are set to "wow" with every performance. "Phenomenally gifted," Radcliff and "monster [harp] player" Guyger are the perfect combination for your Chicago blues fix. (Blues Review) (Mark Hummel)
