jake la botz

september 16th, 2015

wednesday - 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!

geoff achison

september 8th, 2015

tuesday - 7 PM

Growing up in rural Malmsbury Australia, this internationally renowned artist garnered acclaim through his self-taught blues/funk style. Having since lived and performed in London and the U.S., Geoff has received multiple awards including Guitar Player Magazine's "TOP TEN HOT NEW GUITARISTS". Aside from musical prowess and popular applause, Geoff Achison's live sets are distinguished by his balanced mix of blues classics and original compositions. His basic band set up and the complicated earbending results it produces are a spectacle in themselves. It's no wonder the Australian Encyclopedia of Rock & Pop dubbed him "... one of the finest blues players in Australia."

holy crow jazz band

september 12th, 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.

hazmat modine

september 18th, 2015

friday - 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.

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."
