john primer & the real deal blues band

july 9th, 2015

thursday - 10:00PM

As a young musician, John Primer drew his first influences from his family's involvement with spiritual and gospel music. This early exposure, aided by the the sounds of Jimmy Reed, Muddy Waters, Little Milton, Elmore James, B.B. & Albert King, led to a fascination with the blues. True to the form of many bluesmen before him, Primer left Mississippi for Chicago where he played along side Sammy Lawhorn, Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Smokey Smothers, Lonnie Brooks. His career did not have anywhere to go but up and he was taken on as an opening act for Muddy Waters.  After Muddy's passing in 1983, Primer joined and toured with Magic Slim and the Teardrops until 1995 when he released his debut album The Real Deal. Ever since, this Grammy and W.C. Handy award nominee has been tearing up the world as front man of The Real Deal Blues Band!

july 22nd, 2015

wednesday - 10:00PM

Doug Deming and his band The Jewel Tones have been around since the 90's, but their sound resonates a style that is genuine roots blues. Deming's dexterous guitar playing, sultry voice, and stylistic variety guide listeners on a journey through blues history. Deming and his band have recently paired up with Dennis Gruenling, a master blues harmonica player. Known worldwide for his swinging style and inventive techniques, Gruenling's mastery of this cornerstone blues instrument is nothing short of energetic and emotional. Blues Junction calls their collaboration "one of the great tandems in blues music today."

july 19th, 2015 - sunday, 7:00PM

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."

holy crow jazz band

july 11th, 2015

saturday - 6:30 pm

Holy Crow Jazz Band is a New York City based ensemble that specializes in American traditional jazz music from the 1920s throughout the 1930s. The band's repertoire includes many instrumental numbers that were written or were inspired by great musicians of the past such as King Oliver, Kid Ory, Bix Beiderbecke, Red Nichols, and The Original Dixieland Jazz Band, just to name a few. Lead vocals by Jessy Carolina are reminiscent of the antiquated musical stylings of Bessie Smith, Louis Armstrong, and Ma Rainey. The band's stompy and lively sound can be attributed to its heavy horns and solid rhythm section lead by Carolina's husband, Mario J. Maggio (clarinet and tenor saxophone). On trumpet is Tin Pan's vivacious Jesse Selengut. The boisterous Tim Vaugh plays trombone, and proudly known as "TubaJoe" Joe Exley booms on tuba. Proving to be the important foundation of the band are Adam Brisbin on guitar and Curt Garey on drums, with occasional washboarding by Jessy Carolina. Holy Crow Jazz Band sets the stqage for dancing and all within its company for a grand old time.

misty blues

july 17th, 2015

friday - 7:00 pm

Gina Coleman, lead singer and founder of the band Misty Blues began her blues career as a gospel and folk rock singer. After landing a role in the 1999 Williamstown Theatre Festival production of A Raisin In The Sun, she received overwhelmingly positive criticism for her voice and was thus inspired to sing classical blues. Coleman recruited her former bandmates guitarist Jason Webster and bassist Bill Patriquin of the band Cole-Connection, as well as musicians Jeff Dudziak, Benny Kohn, and Kali Baba McConnell to form Misty Blues. Together, the band pays homage to blues music of the 20's, 30's, and 40's while maintaining their roots in gospel and folk rock, creating a unique blues-fusion sound.
