Event Details

Rock & roll, country, jazz, soul, Motown – they all have the blues in their musical DNA. Acclaimed guitar player Joey Leone and his band take the audience on a musical journey from pre-war Delta Blues, up Highway 61 through Memphis, St. Louis, and Chicago, then to the west on Route 66 to California, and finally, back to the South. Joey also adds entertaining anecdotes and stories from his personal experiences performing on stage with several blues legends including Otis Rush, Wilson Pickett, Etta James, and Chaka Khan. It’s a fun and informative concert presentation of great American music brought to you by one of the most passionate and gifted artists on the touring scene today. Beer and soda will be sold at a friendly price; don’t forget your ID.
