This week, Jed Gottlieb wrote an interesting piece in the Herald (see here) about Boston Blues club Smoken Joe’s closing, in which he demonstrated the loss of blues support in the Boston area, using the fact that Gracie Curran moved to Memphis as an example — Boston’s loss.
Remember, Gracie Curran opened the 2013 Gloucester Blues Festival, which helps keep the blues alive in New England — our gain.
Vickie & I also help keep the blues and other music genres alive right in your own backyard. We’re bringing Gracie back to the Larcom Theatre (down the road in Beverly) on November 1 to perform with Victor Wainwright, who’s the hottest young name in blues right now. Victor won the Blues Music Award for Piano Player of the year in 2013 and 2014 and he got the very first standing ovation at this year’s Gloucester Blues Fest.
(BTW: If you want to help us keep the music coming, please vote for our Chase Grant here. It’s easy and free.)
Putting these two young blues stars on the same stage along with Victor’s smokin’ hot band is practically a fire hazard! You’ll experience a night of soulful rockin’ blues like you’ve never felt before. Watch the videos and see what I mean:
Get tickets here before they’re all gone.
