Friday night’s bands
Brother Sun Sister Moon
Brother Sun Sister Moon met on stage at an all-star jam and clicked immediately. Their delta, electric and original Blues music is laden with vocal harmonies, dynamic grooves of depth and exquisite music sensitivity.
Left Wing Bourbon
The roots of Left Wing Bourbon go back to when members/siblings Faith and Jacob were in school. Study by day and Blues by night in the mid 1990’s. Left Wing Bourbon plays funky Blues and feel good soul music. They sweat out the Blues and moves the room until you have no choice but to join in too. Funky Blues won’t hurt a bit.
There are many different opinions as to what the future of the blues harmonica will be. Memphis vocalist and harmonica player Brandon Santini is undeniably a worthy player to keep an eye on as the latest surge of young blues artists leave their footprint in blues history. His name is worthy of conversations that include James Cotton, Kim Wilson, Dennis Gruenling, Charlie Musselwhite and other frontline harmonica players by combining his love and respect for tradition.
Jimmy Nick is an old-fashioned, guitar slinging blues prodigy who spent his teenage years being schooled by legendary bluesmen in the famous Chicago clubs of Kingston Mines, Rosa’s Lounge, and B.L.U.E.S. on Halsted. Driven by his motown-tight band, Don’t Tell Mama, featuring saxophone, bass, and drums Jimmy excites crowds with his electrifying guitar work, fresh harp, clever lyrics and animated stage theatrics. His high energy blues and rock-n-roll captivate audiences, and forge instant fans.
