    Sep 30

    Austin, TX, US | 9:00pm

    DiverseArts and The EastSide Blues Syndicate invite you to join us MONDAY NIGHTS at the Historic Victory Grill for the Blue Monday Blues Jam EastSide Blues Syndicate@9:00pm, jam follows our short set. $3 cover (goes directly to house band, not the venue) 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! About the Blues Syndicate: Old-school Soul, a taste of Bluejazz, Classic Texas Blues: No one in Austin does it like the Eastside Blues Syndicate. This all-star ensemble features Matthew Robinson (guitar and vocals), Harold McMillan (bass), Jose “Sweet-Tone” Ruiz (harmonica), Wheatbread Johnson (lead guitar and vocals) and Roland Laws (drums). ESBS are players with performing, touring, recording, and production credits that span more than 40 years, numerous bands and projects, in genres from jazz to reggae, gospel to rock. Hatched at DiverseArts’ popular Blue Monday Blues Jams @The Victory Grill over three years, this soulful unit was hand picked by founder Harold McMillan. ESBS delivers blues—down-home, to big city groove—with stellar musicianship, heart and soul. Their unique stamp reinterprets obscure blues and blues standards in a manner that shows musical versatility, honoring direct connection to tradition. No other blues band in Austin is like Eastside Blue Syndicate. The Real Deal. Contact: DiverseArts\Harold McMillan 512-538-5657, director@diversearts.org
