january 28th, 2015

wednesday - 10 PM

One of the first singers to appear on Soul Train, Mississippi born Bill Perry has been performing and writing blues, gospel, and soul for over 35 years. Playing solo, duo, trio, or with his full band, Perry's music is described as "instantly infectious" and his high energy performances, featuring a mixture of blues classics and "Howl-n-Madd" originals, are a bright spot on his impressive resume. Bill says "I've been doing this a long time. Hopefully it shows. I'm just playing the blues I love."

hazmat modine

january 9th, 2015

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.

misty blues

january 16th, 2015

friday - 7 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.

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!
