Hello Blues fans
Just because it's Friday the 13th don't let that stop you from coming out and seeing the Highway 17 Bluesband tonight at Smokey’s Place Sports Bar and Grill, 1213 Remount Rd, in N. Charleston. They are Charleston’s premier power blues sextet featuring Lowcountry Blues Club members Tim “The Big Guy” Shaw, Jack “The Man In The Black Hat” Downey, the one and only mighty Dr. Rev. Jerry “Triple Threat” Newman (aka “Mr. Personality”), and your favorite blues harp jammer, Gary “Dream Weaver” Wright! If you like your blues served smokin’ HOT like smoldering asphalt, join in the fun and enjoy an evening of music and entertainment. Full schedule, photos, streaming music, and band merchandise can be found at Highway 17 Blues Band . Check out band info on facebook, myspace, reverbnation, and twitter! Contact the band at .
