Every Damn Thursday has returned with a vengeance. This weekly event is the brainchild of local guitarist Ben Jernigan. Every Damn Thursday features Jernigan and a featured artist entertaining the Cedar Street Social Club crowd with a performance focused on freeform jams. Past featured artists have included Shelby Kemp, Grayson Capps, Damon Fowler and Rick Hirsch. Jernigan’s choice for this week’s installment of Every Damn Thursday should make for an unforgettable evening built on sonic improvisation.
Chris Spies will be stopping by Cedar Street to collaborate with Jernigan. The local master of the keys has lent his talents to groups such as Honey Island Swamp Band and Matador! Soul Sounds. When the COVID-19 crisis peaked in the U.S., stay-at-home orders did not slow Spies’ creative endeavors. This keyboardist took to the livestream world with a number of different performances. However, experiencing Spies in the live environment is an epic musical experience. The crowd should not be surprised if this accomplished local artist brings a few friends onstage to help take this show into new musical dimensions.
