Saturday kicked off Joe’s Jazz and Blues Festival with an all-day free concert at Powderhouse Park.
During the week, area venues will showcase some of the incredible local talent in our musical midst. Wednesday, October 31 at Arts at the Armory Cafe, check out Victor & Penny and be prepared to be impressed by their infectious energy and deft and oft-surprising jazz guitar licks anchored by a fiery one-ukuele rhythm section. Stan Martin Band takes over Sally O’Briens on Friday, November 2, mixing roots, Americana and classic country. And rounding out the festival, the Love Dogs take over Johnny D’s Uptown on Saturday, November 3, combining elements of jump blues, New Orleans R&B and early rock ‘n’ roll into their own powerhouse sound.
