Come out and enjoy a great show in a beautiful club in revitalized downtown Haverhill!
The Boston Blues Society is thrilled to announce a kick-off concert with our latest partner, Mal’s Lounge, on the third floor of George’s Restaurant, 77 Washington St., Haverhill.
Diane Blue, Boston’s own “queen of soul” is a sassy singer-harp player who has the distinction of being dubbed a “monster” on harp at the legendary Red’s juke joint in Clarksdale, Miss.
She can do it all – from Delta blues to funky soul to sweet ballads.
Due to a travel red-tape mishap, she will not be joined by long-time colleague, singer-guitarist Roberto Morbioli, leader of the band Morblus, from Verona, Italy.
But the show must go on, so the Italian contingent has been replaced by some great local musicians, including the great Timo Arthur on guitar.
He will be joined by Lenny Bradford, formerly of Entrain, on bass; Cliff Spencer from The Soul Band on keyboards, and John Medeiros Jr. on drums.
Then, there’s the kickin’ horn section led by Jimmy “Two Suits” Capone of Bellevue Cadillac, and Johnny “Blue Horn” Moriconi of the Chicken Slacks.
Admission is just $10. The show starts at 9 p.m., Saturday, April 3, with dinner seating at 7 p.m. with a special lounge menu. Appetizers, and, of course, your favorite cocktails, will be available during the show.
The club has fantastic surround-sound acoustics and a big dance floor.
If you want a truly special evening, enjoy a gourmet meal before the show in the spacious award winning George’s Restaurant, offering everything from smoked duck breast to sushi to a big prime rib with mashed potatoes, topped off by Chef-owner Peter Polasek’s famous cherry bread pudding with vanilla rum sauce.
Either way, come out and enjoy live soulful blues from Diane and her mezza Italian band!
The BBS will have a table at the show, so stop, say hello, and consider becoming a BBS member or buying one of our cool T-shirts. Remember, members get $2 off at our shows!
