So the long awaited release of our New Year’s Eve celebration is finally here!!! In honor of the 44’s giving us the call last year to ring in, what we thought would be our encore performance here at the club, we decided to bring the boys back to town!!
After some conversation about how So-Cal and the Pacific Northwest have collaborated on Blues music over the years, we decided to invite a familiar friend. Joining the 44’s as a featured guest will be our ole gal pal, Laura Chavez. In case the name slips ya, Laura was Candye Kane’s lead guitarist, co-producer and music director.
Supporting this headlining group of artists is home-town hero Nick Vigarino. Hailing from Youngstown Ohio, Nick set out to the Pacific Northwest many moons ago and has been a very important part of the Blues music scene here ever since. Nick staked his claim here in Seattle by preserving Blues music, among others, bringing the likes of RL Burnside to our region and our fine city. Nick found himself creating a Pacific Northwest form of Delta, Country Blues. His open tunings and rare style of slide guitar leave all who have had the opportunity to see him play in awe, trying to figure out how he can fit so many notes into a progression of a song with only 10 fingers.
Starting the night out will be our ole buddy Calvin Conway playing his personal form of Delta Blues, written exclusively while traveling the country by train. AND yes, he’s coming out for New Year’s via the rails my friends. Joining Calvin during his set will be our new friend to the Seattle Blues music scene, Brett “Bad Blood” Benton. Hailing from Alabama and a hill country bluesman himself, Brett is well versed in the open tunings and various forms of Delta Country Blues which will set the tone for the night. In respect to our headlining act tickets begin at 44 bucks my friends. VIP tickets are available on a first come, first accommodated availability. Book ‘em while we got ‘em friends!!
