Jared James Nichols
FridayMay 17, 2019
You can't teach the blues. It's not something that can be codified in music books or learned on YouTube. It goes much deeper than that and it comes from the inside. It's about the way the guitar strings are bent and the sound gets transmuted directly from a player's soul. It's simple at the end of the day. Either you've....read more

Chris Barron of the Spin Doctors
FridayJune 7, 20198:00pm   $20.00TicketWeb

He's a veteran approaching....read more

Chris Duarte Group
SaturdayJuly 20, 20198:00pm   $20.00TicketWeb
