It's gonna be HOT!
There is actually a blues jam in Austin that has a multi-generational mix of players who come together to teach and learn the blues tradition. Some folks have only been playing blues for a few years....others have been into the blues for more than 40 years.
Are there other blues jams in Austin where this is true?
(and, just so you know how we feel....if you don't come hang with us, go somewhere and support live blues in Austin!)
We really would love to have your presence tonight, and every Blue Monday at Austin's original home of the blues, the Historic Victory Grill.
Come out and play your Monday blues away. We'll be jamming blue soul music at the Victory Grill. Come out to play or just to dance and hang out. A good time is guaranteed.
Hope to see you. Bring your axe and voice!
