Blues Society News: Annual Member Parties

Posted: November 28, 2013

Sunday, December 8, Blues Lovers United of San Diego (BLUSD) are throwing a Member Appreciation Party from 1-5pm at the House of Blues (1055 5th Ave., San Diego). Appearing will be L.A.’s blues-roots band, The 44s with special guest James Harman; the Bayou Brothers, 2013 San Diego Music Award’s “Best Blues” winners; Ben Powell, the 2012 BLUSD IBC winner and a set comprised of a youth blues band. Doors 12:15pm. No cover for BLUSD members, $15.00 for non-members (can be applied to a yearly membership of $25 single, $35 family), $5.00 for children 12-17 years of age and no cover for children under 12 years when accompanied by an adult.

The 44s are a Los Angeles-based blues-roots-rock band featuring the guitar and vocals of Johnny Main. The band plays vintage instruments and channels a blues style of days past, but there is a distinct rawness to this blues award winning quartet. James Harman is an amazing talent on his own so we know this set with the 44s will be even more off the chain! He’s a one-of-a-kind song writer, producer, musician, showman, vocalist and internationally known bluesman.

The House of Blues will provide an early “Happy Hour” beverage and food menu from 1pm until 4pm. At 4pm we will be able to order from the regular menu and continue to enjoy “Happy Hour” priced beverages.
