Old Riley's Juke Joint with 19th Street Red

@ The Starlight on Thursday's 10pm til???

19th Street Red’s blues is not the “polite” blues. It is the low down, razor’s edge gutbucket blues that makes dancers want to sweat and shake their butts. This gritty style reminds you of the street music of Chicago’s Jew-town and the lowdown groove of Muddy Waters.

In Clarksdale, Mississippi, 19th Street Red is a celebrity. Presiding over his street spot next to “Ground Zero” blues club for years, and raising the bar at his favorite juke joint, “Red’s Lounge”, 19th Street Red has been an integral part of this scene. The 6-hour drive from his New Orleans home is a ritual. The ghosts of his influences, John Lee Hooker, Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters are conjured with his raspy but musical vocal style and the raw lashing of his Les Paul slide guitar.New music showcase from Old Riley & The Water every Thursday night at The Starlight. With a focus on rowdy blues and folk tunes. Local musicians and traveling bands as well. Please drop on by and juke with us!!

Little Freddie King Blues Brunch @ Lil Gem Saloon

“Freddie is that raw, what-you-see-is-what-you-get blues artist. You're getting all the emotions of a human being. And they're not just playing it. It's not an act. They lived it. You couldn't script what came out of these people. It was real. And Freddie is the last link of that music left in New Orleans. He's it.”  -Gary Rouzan
