With the support and best wishes of the Lowcountry Blues Club, the J Edwards Band will head off to Memphis next Tuesday to compete at the International Blues Challenge. We know they're going to have a fabulous time, and see lots of great music. Have fun, guys!! We look forward to hearing all about it...
Are you looking for great music this weekend? Here's the scoop, from Scott Bucholtz.
Friday, January 27:
Starling w/ Captain Kirk is at Smokey’s Place
Fish Scales and The Dan Wright Duo are at Art’s Bar & Grill
Sarah Cole & The Hawkes will be at The Oasis on Folly
Highway 17 Blues Band at Hidden Cove Marina in Moncks Corner
Saturday, Jan 28:
Big Daddy Cade’s B.B. King Tribute w/ Scott Bucholtz will be at the YE OLDE MUSIC STORE’s 22nd Birthday Celebration @ 5pm
The Louie D Project w/ J.R. Getches is on the Vendue Rooftop @ 6pm
Mason Dixon w/ Scott Bucholtz is at Famous Joe’s in West Ashley
Hibachi Heroes w/ Rob Lowe at Island Bar & Grill
And from Lua - I want to add that also on Saturday night there will be a wonderful show at the Hippodrome (formerly the IMAX) downtown for one of my favorite local musicians, Mac Leaphart. Mac is a wonderful singer/songwriter - you might know his song "Confederate Roses" which is played a lot on the radio. Mac had to have surgery for a brain tumor back in November, and his many friends have gotten together to put on a benefit for him. It will be a multimedia experience including film and lots of music from people like Mark Bryan, Danielle Howle, Jamie Resch, Shovels & Rope, Guilt Ridden Troubadour, and many more. It starts early at 6:30 with a silent auction, then the show at 8:00. You can get tickets ahead of time from the Hippodrome for $17, or at the door for $20. I know the show is going to be well worth it!
And remember: The Lowcountry Blues Club now has TWO weekly jam nights. Smokey’s Place Sports Bar & Grill at 1213 Remount Road in North Charleston hosts a weekly jam from 5 pm to 9 pm on Sunday’s. And there's the regular Wednesday night jam at Home Team BBQ/West Ashley, 8pm.
