If what they say is true – that blues music is a doorway to the soul – then maybe you should listen. Starting on Tuesday, September 19 from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m., Blue Tuesdays are back with award-winning blues at the legendary oceanfront hot spot Boston’s on the Beach. “We are proud to celebrate our 10th season showcasing some of the finest acts in blues music today,” said “Famous” Frank Ward, the event’s host and organizer. “Every Tuesday night, guests can look forward to a memorable evening of great food and cocktails, and the best blues on the beach.”
Blue Tuesdays’ September performances:
September 19: Jason Ricci & the Bad Kind are in the house! One of the most respected harmonica players on the scene today, Jason Ricci has been electrifying the blues world with his revolutionary riffs for the past two decades. Ricci was a featured performer on Johnny Winter’s album Step Back, which won two awards in 2015: a Grammy Award for Best Blues Album and a Blues Music Award for Best Rock Blues Album. In April 2015, Ricci played harmonica on the song “Born in Chicago” with Zac Brown and Tom Morello at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony for The Paul Butterfield Blues Band.
September 26: Shawn Holt & The Teardrops are in the house! Son of the legendary blues master Magic Slim, Shawn ‘Lil’ Slim’ Holt is one of the most dynamic blues and soul artists on the scene today.
