Fri June 25 SMOKIN' JOE KUBEK & BNOIS KING 8pm-$15 10pm-$12 Both $18
A guitar prodigy at the age of 14, the Texas guitar slinger played rhythm guitar behind Freddie King for a while, until King's death in December 1976. Kubek didn't hit his stride, however, until he teamed up with jazz guitarist and singer Bnois King of Monroe, Louisiana, in 1989. Joe and Bnois are a study in opposites. Kubek explodes on stage with a blazing blues/rock style born from the guitar traditions of Texas. King finesses fat chords with a hollow body Gibson and belts out blues with his whisper-to-growl voice, his sound rooted in the jazz tradition of Louisiana. Together, they form a musically intuitive partnership. Kubek's impeccable guitar solos follow King's sublime vocals perfectly. The jazz-infected blues guitar runs of King are sharp and inventive, and are a great counterpoint to Kubek's slashing, stinging power and drive. Together, they’ve earned a reputation as one of the baddest-ass blues bands in the land.
Sat June 26 DWIGHT RICHTER & NICOLE NELSOn 8pm-$12 10pm-$10 Both $15
With a uniquely original mix of soul, country, blues, rock, and gospel, Dwight Ritcher and Nicole Nelson transcend the old and new with a timeless sound that belies their years. Featuring their warm voices in tight harmony - all under a stripped down beat of guitar, tambourine, hand claps, and hollers - Dwight and Nicole deliver American music for the ages. Richter and Nelson met one another in 2000, in Boston, Massachusetts. Both fresh out of college and new to the area, they frequented each others shows, crossing paths at blues jams and local night clubs. Over the next few years, their groups would quickly become two of New England's most sought after Roots acts. Nelson proves herself to be every bit as ground breaking as her many influences. Evoking a sound that is wise beyond her years, she delivers blues, R&B, rock, and classic soul with the kind of passion that changes the listener. Hurts and heals. Possessing a natural voice that caresses like honey and burns like a blaze, swooping from the most delicate whisper to an explosion of soulful passion, Nicole stands upon the shoulders of the all-time greats while forging her own way toward music history.
