A Night of Blues slated at Vets’ Theater

By From page A9 | February 08, 2012

The city of Davis Community Services Department invites local residents to A Night of Blues beginning at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Veterans’ Memorial Theater, 203 E. 14th St. in Davis.

The concert begins with the rocking sound of the Blue Blazes playing songs by Gene Vincent, Carl Perkins and Eddie Cochran, along with the soulful blues of Howlin Wolf and George Thorogood.

They are followed by the danceable beats of The Hucklebucks with their unmistakable California style of West Coast blues and concludes with the eclectic sound of the Chicken Scratch Blues Band, formerly Rolling Fork Blues Revue, bringing to life the classic Chicago blues of Muddy Waters and Howlin Wolf, the Memphis sounds of B.B. King and the classic women’s blues of Bessie Smith and Ida Cox.

“It should be an evening that encompasses something for everyone interested in the blues,” a city news release said.

Advance tickets are $8 each, available at the Community Services Department office, 600 A St., Suite C; Armadillo Music, 205 F St.; The Avid Reader, 617 Second St.; and the Hallmark Inn, 110 F St. Tickets at the door will be $10.
