hazmat modine

february 20th, 2016

saturday - 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.

jake la botz

february 4th, 2016 - 7 PM

American bluesman and travel junkie Jake La Botz  hit the road and began playing the blues at the young age of 15. La Botz spent his early years traveling and strumming his guitar on street corners, in juke joints, and in tattoo shops across Chicago, the Delta south, and eventually the rest of the United States. Influenced and trained by some of the last remaining pre-war era blues greats such as "Homesick" James, David "Honeyboy" Edwards, and "Maxwell Street" Jimmy Davis, La Botz then went on to tour the U.S. and Europe with legends like Ray Charles, Buddy Guy, John Hammond, Etta James, and many more. La Botz has also acted in and contributed his own original music to various films over the years, such as Rambo, Animal Factory, and On The Road. Be sure not to miss this multi-faceted musician right here at Terra Blues!

chuck lambert

february 24th, 2016 - 10:00PM

Chuck Lambert, a blues veteran of over 40 years, along with his band, are a spirited, driving force within the blues community. They combine Chicago and Texas- style blues, Kansas City jump, and a bit of their own personal flavor to deliver a performance of extreme emotional dynamic. The Asbury Park Press refers to Lambert as the type of performer who "specializes in the kind of intensity driving buttkicking electric blues that makes you think of players from an earlier era who helped define the art."

Claiming the harmonica ads 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.

Guyger's performances are enhanced by his fine clear voice and his preservation of the harp tradition with a unique and refreshing twist!
