Blue Wednesday: Clark Stern & Chuck Cotton + HORNS
March 29, 2017 · Wednesday * 8pm * NO Cover
NOTE FROM CLARK: We’re doing one more extra special deluxe horn section show. We’ll be joined by Keenan McKenzie on sax, Renee McGee on trumpet, and Lucian Cobb on trombone. If ever there was a Clark & Chuck show to go to, this is the one!
It will be fantastic, with genuine 1951 R&B music. Plus, there are ribs, bbq, drinks. and dancing! And we’ll be observing my ancient birthday. Two of our favorites hit the stage the 4th Wednesday of every month.
Bluesman Clark Stern has played piano alongside genre notables such as Lurrie Bell, Anson Funderburgh and Billy Boy Arnold, but he’s joined tonight by local drum veteran Chuck Cotton ( Bob Margolin’s band). Though Stern and Cotton both sing, the focus is on the simple interplay beneath the two instrumentalists, which really gets cooking once Stern’s piano stand starts shaking from his heavy hands. Expect plenty of boogie-woogie and jump blues when they draw tunes from traditional and gospel repertoires, as well as Stern’s originals.
