“The origin of the term “the blues” was most likely derived from mysticism involving blue indigo, which was used by many West African cultures in death and mourning ceremonies where all the mourner’s garments would have been dyed blue to indicate suffering.” Wikipedia
You don’t have to be in mourning to enjoy the seven styles of blues we’ll be playing at Smokebrush on Sunday night Sept 23 starting at 7:30 PM. But, it would be fun to have you show up in something blue – a shirt, a hat, a scarf, jewelry or whatever.
Ken Janzen the fine jazz pianist, Marc Neihof premier bassist , Dick Cunico the drummer for all seasons and yours truly will play bebop, cool, funky, island, N’arlins, latin, and true blues. W’ll also do some of our unique collective improvisation to create new blue art in the moment. It’s definitely engaging and fun!
Tickets are $7 at the door or you can reserve online and walk right in. come on down and have fun with us and… wear your blue.
