    The BelAirs

    Doors open @ 6:30 show begins @ 8pm

    WebsiteBelAirsFronted by brothers Dick and Dave Pruitt on bass and electric guitars, with Michael Cherry on drums, the Bel Airs play a danceable mix with an authentic but eclectic bluesy-country-soul-and-rock-n-roll sound influenced by the likes of Wilson Picket, Slim Harpo, Howlin' Wolf and Johnny Cash.

    Living on the road and playing clubs from "Austin to Boston", the Bel Airs are carrying on the tradition of American Rhythm and Blues.  The band is fronted by brothers Dick and Dave Pruitt on bass and electric guitars.  Growing up on country soul and rock-n-roll, the Pruitt brothers have developed a harmony vocal style all their own.  They have been performing together for more than 30 years, wowing audiences nightly with their unique brand of music- leading one reviewer to refer to them as the "Everly Brothers of Blues."

    With four acclaimed albums and performances at festivals and night clubs across the USA as well as England, France, Belgium and Spain, the band continues to travel extensively.  The Bel Airs' musical approach and superbly crafted showmanship make for a more than memorable concert whenever they appear.

    Slam Allen

    Doors open @ 6:30 show begins @ 8pm

    WebsiteSlamAllenSlam Allen has been entertaining with his unique blend of soul and blues for over twenty years. Playing the famous Chitlin' Circuit as well as performing around the world, Allen's music and enthusiasm has been shared with thousands of people. For the past five years he has played an important role in the legendary James Cotton Band. "It's one of the highlights and privileges of my life to play with Cotton" says Allen, "He is one of the last living legends, and there's so much history there. Cotton was directly connected to Muddy Waters -- who was a major factor in the blues world as well as being one of my all time favorites. Playing with Cotton is such a great experience for me and there are things you can learn from him that you can't learn from any school. It's a great honor." Music is in Allen's blood -- he got his start from his father and uncles who were known as the Allen Brothers Band. Allen carries on the family legacy wherever he goes. His music runs deep. "When I play," says Allen, "People who may have never heard of me leave the show with a feeling like that we're old friends or family." From B.B. King to Otis Redding. Slam has a way of making you feel the Soul of the Music. Sometime you cannot tell if he is doing one of his oringinals or a old blues or soul cover cause he makes all the music his own.

    Selwyn Birchwood

    Doors open @ 6:30 show begins @ 8pm

    WebsiteSelwynBirchwoodSelwyn Birchwood, Floridas rising young blues fireball, is a guitar and lap-steel-playing bundle of pure energy. He delivers his original songs with a revival tent preachers fervor and a natural storytellers charisma made all the more impactful by his raw, unvarnished vocals. Birchwood plays high-octane blues  at once deeply rooted, funky and up-to-the-minute  with true passion and honest emotion. With his band feeding off his drive and exuberance, the striking 63 29-year-old with his trademark Afro roams the stage (often barefoot), ripping out memorable guitar licks with ease. His ability to win over an audience  any audience  is proven night after night on the bandstand. With his warm, magnetic personality, Birchwood is as down-to-earth as his music is fun, thought-provoking and vital. His mission is to spread his music far and wide, to share his joy, to play his heart out, and to push the blues into the future. Theres nothing Id rather be doing than playing the blues, he says. And I try to convey that with every song and with every performance.
