Even after the sun goes down, Black Friday will continue raging into the late-night hours, perhaps bringing on a tinge of the holiday blues. Never fear: The Blues Tavern is bringing back the Josh Garrett Band.
Garrett’s style was forged in the swampy environs of South Louisiana. By the time he was 20, Garrett was playing weekly gigs around his hometown of Houma but since, he has steadily spread his sound across the Southeast and beyond.
Garrett will be performing cuts from his third album, “Honey for My Queen.” While his latest release is filled with modern blues, Garrett also provides a beautiful nod to the past with the raggy “Back from Memphis” and the instrumental “Slide in G.” “Honey for My Queen” does an excellent job of appealing to a variety of blues tastes.
