Homemade Jamz Blues Band
Friday, July 25th - 7:30pm & 10pm - $24
Rife with powerful, puissant songs that lyrically and musically epitomize the blues, the Homemade Jamz Blues Band's "Pay Me No Mind" blends Chicago and Mississippi juke joint blues, copping the gritty slickness of the former and the dirty soul of the latter—never betraying its authors’ age. The trio exudes nothing but confidence and attitude as they sing of betrayal, love, hard times and other bad things gone down as if they’ve lived a life rich in strife. They are, to be sure, a veritable blues explosion poised to make the big sound.

A torch bearer. A 21st century bluesman.
