A special time of year calls for a special schedule and the Mystic Order of the Jazz Obsessed is following suit. Their monthly celebration of truly American music has been moved to the third Monday of December rather than its usual fourth Monday slot to make room for the Christmas holiday.
Blues guitarist Bryan Lee has thrilled audiences on both sides of the Atlantic and brings his Chicago blues-influenced sound to Mobile for this show. Blind since the age of eight, Lee’s talent lead him to share the stage with Buddy Guy, Freddie King, B. B. King, Albert King, Albert Collins, Pine Top Perkins and Tab Benoit among others. He appeared with Kenny Wayne Shepard on “The Tonight Show” a few years ago and brings his combo of drummer John Perkins, guitarist Brent Johnson and bassist Nick Hern with him to the Azalea City.
Entrance is $12, $8 for MOJO members with student and military rates available. Fee includes a light jambalaya dinner and a cash bar is available. For more info, call 251-459-2298, email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to www.mojojazz.org.
