Band: Blues Tavern’s 18th anniversary blowout
Date: Saturday, May 6, noon
Venue: Blues Tavern, 2818 Government Blvd., www.bluestavern.com
For 18 years, Blues Tavern has stood as the Azalea City’s bastion of the blues. Whether touring bands or locals, this venue has brought a number of great blues acts to its stage. This anniversary celebration will epitomize the venue’s musical philosophy.
The day’s lineup will include sets from locals such as John Hall Trio, Mudbucket, The Halfway Show Band and Little Delta.
Birmingham’s Alabama Rose will be one of two visiting bands, adding a healthy dose of garage rock, blues and soul to the mix. Its live show promises to represent the raw, electrifying rock ‘n’ roll they’ve become known for. Ultimately, Alabama Rose is a worthy reaction to the industry-standard rock sounds plaguing the airwaves.
Royal & Toulouse will also be traveling from Birmingham to contribute to the soundtrack of this epic party. This group specializes in Southern fried blues with a dash of soul. Milyn Satterfield’s vocal work flows smoothly through the band’s arrangements. Royal & Toulouse should definitely keep the blues alive and relevant for new-schoolers.
