Jacksonville, Florida, has always been a hotbed of musical talent. The original Lynyrd Skynyrd, Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit, Butch Trucks and nephew Derek Trucks of the Allman Brothers Band, and Vic Chesnutt all hail from Jacksonville. Bryce Alastair & The Blues-N-Brews are one of the most prolific current local acts. Alastair will give the Azalea City a taste of Jacksonville blues with a solo acoustic show at Mobile’s only true listening room.

With a repertoire of more than 200 songs, Alastair should have no problem entertaining the crowd. His education in the blues began during childhood, influenced by musicians ranging from Robert Johnson to The Band.

Alastair and his own band produce a heavy, roughneck blend of rock and blues. His solo acoustic interpretations should make for good listening.
