Sugar Ray Norcia Trio & Ricky King Russell

 8 pm $10

Three time Grammy nominee and Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame inductee Sugar Ray Norcia teams up with guitar ace Ricky King Russell and bassist Bob Worthington for a memorable evening of jazz and blues.

Presented in an intimate and most refreshing format of Sugar Ray’s soulful vocals and tasteful harmonica licks supported by a stripped down rhythm section of only guitar and stand up bass this show promises to be a most pleasant, memorable and quite unique musical experience.

Ray has selected a list of material that encompasses some of his favorite jazz and blues songs that he has recorded over the past four decades. You will hear selections from his recordings with Roomful of Blues, Porky Cohen, Doug James, Duke Robillard and of course his award winning touring band Sugar Ray and the Bluetones as well as a few jazz standards such as “Dont Get Around Much Anymore”, ”River Stay Away From My Door” and “September In the Rain”.

“In this day and age of noise and confusion come and spend a few hours with Rick, Bob and myself and give your ears a break and uplift your soul”….Sugar Ray Norcia

Lone Star Golden State Blues Revue

 8 pm $25


Two great bluesmen from California and Texas - Mark Hummel and Anson Funderburgh…This is
authentically, real blues music. if this doesn’t get you fist pumping and jumping around, you better check your pulse to make sure you still
have one. With Mark Hummel and Anson Funderburgh leading the charge, you know you’re in good hands...Hot stuff throughout!

What some critics are saying about GOLDEN STATE - LONE STAR BLUES REVUE:

"they just might be the best blues band going." (Kent Wolgamott/Lincoln Journal-Star)

"a stunning piece of work from start to finish…There is no jockeying for position here despite the formidable talent…Hummel handles lead vocals and is the featured soloist more often than not, but Baty's swinging, sophisticated guitar lines…and Funderburgh's more aggressive and stinging--but always tasteful--approach anchor every song on which they appear. From the swinging, mid-tempo 'Midnight Hour'…to the closing 'End Of The World', an extended slow blues with ominous undertones that are reinforced by the sound of police sirens looping in the background, these artists display a chemistry that evinces their decades of experience touring and performing with some of the top names in the genre…rhythm section deserves special mention…They seem to have scratched the surface of their creative potential--here's hoping this collaboration will endure well into the future." (Roger Gatchet/Living Blues)

"harmonica monster Mark Hummel, of the Blues Survivors, and Little Charlie Baty, monster guitar man from the Nightcats, have teamed up with some other monsters. Anson Funderburgh of the legendary Texas band, the Rockets, an all star Austin rhythm section. The result is a California Texas super band...Tasty yet nasty, smooth yet rough, suave boogie woogie for every kind of bootie." (BluesMobile)

"The road from Texas to California runs right through T-Bone Walker, no detours about it. Since Walker packed his guitar and moved there in the 1940's, what is termed as West Coast Blues revolves around a style he defined. Golden State Lone Star Blues Revue is a blues ensemble founded by harmonica player and singer Mark Hummel, featuring guitarists Anson Funderburgh, and Little Charlie Baty. All respected instrumentalists in their own right, this collaboration is a premium showcase of West Coast Blues. ...the guitar interplay is tasteful and they give each other room. The spotlight of course will shine on Hummel as vocalist, but he wisely integrates himself in the band for the reliable blues band situation. As this music continues its generational journey, the Golden State Lone Star Blues Revue represent the contemporary keepers of the flame, assuring the blues will never die." (James Nadal/All About Jazz)

"Harp heavyweight Mark Hummel has assembled a blues supergroup and the 14 titanic tracks here, recorded at Kid Andersen’s Greaseland Studio in San Jose, Ca., will knock your socks off. Joining Hummel for these invigorating performances are guitar greats Anson Funderburgh and Little Charlie Baty, plus drummer Wes Starr and bassist R.W. Grigsby. Romping through a variety of blues styles, there’s joy and exuberance in every measure...Pure gold." (Paul Freeman/Pop Culture Classics)

"Though described as a blues 'supergroup', this fivesome-plus refreshingly displays none of the showboating or excess such a tag can suggest. With guitar giants Anson Funderburgh and 'Little' Charlie Baty in tow, master blues harp craftsman Mark Hummel fronts a lineup which lays down a set of blues as rock-solid as each of their individual resumes...Hummel’s originals, including 'Cool To Be Your Fool”', 'Lucky Kewpie Doll' and the haunting 'End Of The World' mesh well with well-selected covers such as Mose Allison’s 'Stop This World'. Keyboardist Jim Pugh stands out as a guest artist." (Duane Verh/Roots Music Report)

"Baty’s fast fingered jazz style of playing is pitted against Funderburgh’s smoother, fluid lines and the two play off each other wonderfully...The results are not as much a series of spotlighted solos or a guitar heaven that you might have envisioned. You can expect to hear that live (and I just did recently) but here the playing is more democratic and ensemble oriented with short, crisp solos. ...These guys are all veteran bluesmen playing what noted critic Dick Shurman dubs 'Real Deal Blues.'" (Jim Hynes/Elmore)

"the guys have a sound as big as their combined resumes that shines on cuts like a buoyant cover of Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown's 'Midnight Hour,' Lowell Fulson's sassy 'Check Yourself' and Hummel originals like the swinging 'Cool to Be Your Fool,' the twangy and appropriately '50s-leaning 'Lucky Kewpie Doll' and the very slow and smoky 'End of the World.' Guest players on sax, piano and organ help out the all-stars throughout." (Kevin Wierzbicki/antiMusic)

"...Top notch from start to finish, skip this one at your peril." (Mark Smith/Music Revue)

"This is a terrific revue and reports of their shows seems consistent with the music here. The performances are marvelously performed and backed by an excellent rhythm section. Fans of real deal blues are in for a treat with this gem." (Ron Weinstock/In A Blue Mood)

"true blues supergroup crackling with energy and artistry." (B.J. Huchtemann/The Reader)

"Pick Hit...the music here lives up to my lofty expectations... a fine, fine album." (Bill Mitchell/BluesBytes)

"terrific! ...This is an excellent release with more joint contributions and only a few individual blow out solos making it walk like a silent giant." (Bman's Blues Report)

"great bluesmen from California and Texas - including Mark Hummel and Anson Funderburgh…This is authentically, real blues music. Dig it!" (Joe Wolfe-Mazares/Ear To The Ground)

"A total modern blues super group, if this doesn’t get you fist pumping and jumping around, you better check your pulse to make sure you still have one. With Mark Hummel and Anson Funderburgh leading the charge, you know you’re in good hands...Hot stuff throughout." (Chris Spector/Midwest Record Review)
