SEE A VIDEO:
At the height of summer, when days are hot and can get you bothered, cool yourself off with some sultry, pulsating and rockin’ nighttime Blues from six-time Best in Blues winner, Asheville’s Chanteuse, Peggy Ratusz and friends.
Known for pulling from the endless pool of talented players, for this pop-up show Ratusz has gathered the creamiest of the crop. Jonathan Pearlman (Alien Music Club) with his proven command and prowess will play guitars and sing back up. Grant Cuthbertson, (Pam Jones, Chuck Lichentenberger Collective, Funknastics) will render his aptitude on both electric and upright bass. Aaron Price (Producer, Composer, Wham Bam Bowie Band, Vendetta Crème) will deliver his usual phenomenal hold and competency on keyboards and vocals while beat maestro, Tony Creasman (Willie Nelson, James Taylor, Alison Krauss, etc.) will take the throne holding everything down to the ground on drums.
The playlist runs a gamut of Blues infused standards and nostalgic spins on 60’s, 70’s and 80’s radio friendly hits like Only You Know and I Know (Dave Mason/Delaney & Bonnie), Smiling Faces (Undisputed Truth, The Temptations), On the Road Again (Canned Heat). They’ll take you down memory lane with a 2-song tribute to Gregg Allman from his Low Country Blues album as well as honoring the memory of Chuck Berry with a spin on one of his classics. With a dash of Ann Peebles, Eric Bibb, Little Feat, Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald, it will all culminate to a cohesive yet varied evening of The Blues in the Night!
