Madison Wisconsin has a Blues tradition going back at least as far as big Blues names appearing at a crowded campus corner bar called The Nitty Gritty. From there the nexus of Blues performances in Madison kept moving. To The Church Key, The Club De Wash, Luther's Blues, and now Madison's new "Home of the Blues", The Knuckle Down Saloon.
And this Saturday (August 10), longtime, grizzled veterans of the Madison music scene, "Madison's Biggest Little Band," Big Wes Turner's Trio, gets down at the Knuckle Down. Be there! The "Rockin' RHYTHM & Swingin' BLUES" starts rollin' at 9 pm.
Big Wes's chosen three will rely heavily on their Blues and R&B repertoire, but there's no way they won't be trotting out favorites from further out, such as: Mickey Baker's classic guitar instrumental Lullaby of the Leaves, or Jimi Hendrix's Up From The Skies. After all, Blues and R&B has always been Big Wes's meat and potatoes, but, as the big Man himself would say, "What about dessert?"
Tom McCarty (bass), Rick Becker (drums), and Gary Hendrickson (guitar).
