TBS 1st Sunday Blues Jam with guest hosts Paul Urban & Pork Pie Hat

May 7, 2017  ·  Sunday * 6-9pm * NO Cover

Ease into a new month with the TBS 1st Sunday Blues jam.  Get your musical “fix” by playing, dancing, or just having a great time. Musicians from all over the Triangle and beyond show up to play.

Our guest host this month:  Paul Urban and Pork Pie Hat from Chesapeake, VA.

Guitarist/vocalist, Paul Urban, has been playing up and down the East coast for over 40 years. He counts among his main influences Muddy Waters, BB King, John Lee Hooker, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Duane Allman and Johnny Winter.

Pork Pie Hat is a blues rock group with deep roots in the Triangle Area. Composed of Jay Cunningham vocals / guitar / bass, Paul Urban vocals / guitar / bass and James Sessoms on drums, Pork Pie Hat is often joined by Michael Borstelman of the Duke Street Dawgs on electric mandolin. The bands these guys have played in reads like a ” who’s who ” of the Raleigh/ Durham/ Chapel Hill music scene. Groups like The Green River Band, The Claptones, Pork Pie Hat, Rebecca and the High Tones and Urban Hill. Pork Pie Hat would make an excellent addition to any festival or performance venue talent line-up.

So come on out and enjoy some blues, eat some great food, support the Triangle Blues Society (TBS), meet some new friends or just hang out with some old ones … and have a great time!
