Blues with a Twist

Tuesdays, 7 p.m. - 10 p.m.

Join Jeanne and Mary, hosts of Blues with a Twist, every Tuesday night from 7 to 10 p.m. Enjoy a bit of jazz, something to get you rocking, and a heapin' helping of blues. They mix original blues with a blend of contemporary music and an occasional return to the vintage 1940's. Your requests are welcomed and encouraged!

"Blues, juice and Jazz!" - Jeanne Kelly

It was a bountiful year for the music we love, and that made it very difficult to narrow our favorites to a top ten list.  Here they are in no particular order:

An old time rooster, Mike, in North Carolina, and his several laying hens, confabulated in the hen house and decided to sacrifice a supersized bag of dried meal worms, so that Blues With A Twist will continue to make their job of pecking worms, termites, ticks and fleas much more bearable.  Join Mike and the hens on Tuesday to meet the monetary challenge and listen to some great music at the same time.

If you're in Clarksdale, Miss., home of the Delta blues, everybody says you have to go to Red's juke joint. The hole-in-the-wall club is the real deal. It's just a small room, a few tables and a fridge full of beer. Red lights are strung around a low ceiling. On the night we visit, octogenarian Leo "Bud" Welch plays in the center of the room, hunched over a sparkly, hot pink, electric guitar. Red Paden, the owner, sits out front, surveying from behind the bar.

It’s Mardi Gras time.  Get out your white hanky and get ready to strut to some New Orleans Music.  Join us, Jeanne Kelly and Sister Mary, for that special second line beat on Fat Tuesday, February 28, 2017.

How’s your love life? Stevie Ray Vaughn can answer that question.   Are you a victim of unrequited love?  Perhaps you need Derek and the Dominoes.  Do you need a second chance?  Maybe Solomon Burke can help.  Does the direct approach work best for you?  If so - Muddy Waters is your man. 

Tune in this Tuesday @ 7:00 PM and SisterMary and Jeanne may jump start your heart.
