Enjoy an evening of UPtempo blues from some of the region’s top bluesmen! Some of the premier blue performers in the Philadelphia region will be coming together for over 3 solid hours of contemporary and traditional blues.
Mikey Junior Band: Mikey Junior burst onto the blues scene less than a dozen years ago and since that time has amassed an impressive catalog of music and praise from both music fans and industry insiders. He is the complete package — vocalist, harmonica player, and a high energy live performer. Whenever Mikey performs with a full band, you can be sure he surrounds himself with a group of players with talents equal to his own.
Nick Trill and the Thrillseekers: Nick Trill has been playing blues professionally since 1977. He played with top bands in the New York City area, sharing the stage with some of the national blues stars, until he moved to South Florida in 1995 where he formed the Thrillseekers. Several years ago, he relocated to Philadelphia and reformed the Thrillseekers. They perform throughout the region, putting out some hard driving, swinging Chicago blues.
The Two Johns: The duo of Johnny Never and harmonica player John Colgan-Davis have been wowing audiences with acoustically astute vintage blues for years. Johnny and John can be heard on Johnny Never’s latest CD “Blue Delta – New and Used Vintage Blues” which is now getting airplay on blues stations around the country. Johnny Never also play solo shows throughout the area. When he is not playing with the Two Johns, John Colgan-Davis is the leader of one of the area’s top blues bands – The Dukes of Destiny.
If you enjoy the blues, you need to be at Uptown! for a night of Uptown! Summertime Blues.
