JOHN PRIMER

AUGUST 1, 2013 - 10 PM

As a young musician, John Primer drew his first influences from his family's involvement with spiritual and gospel music. This early exposure, aided by the the sounds of Jimmy Reed, Muddy Waters, Little Milton, Elmore James, B.B. & Albert King, led to a fascination with the blues. True to the form of many bluesmen before him, Primer left Mississippi for Chicago where he played along side Sammy Lawhorn, Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Smokey Smothers, Lonnie Brooks. His career did not have anywhere to go but up and he was taken on as an opening act for Muddy Waters.  After Muddy's passing in 1983, Primer joined and toured with Magic Slim and the Teardrops until 1995 when he released his debut album The Real Deal. Ever since, this Grammy and W.C. Handy award nominee has been tearing up the world as front man of The Real Deal Blues Band!

SMOKIN' JOE KUBEK & B'NOIS KING

AUGUST 22ND, 2013 - 10 PM

CANCELLED DUE TO HEALTH ISSUES

Born in Pennsylvania, but raised in Texas, Joe Kubek was playing the Dallas clubs before the age of 15. During the 70's and 80's Kubek honed his guitar skills playing with the likes of B.B. King, Albert King, Freddie King, and Stevie Ray Vaughn. In 1989 Kubek was introduced to Bnois King, a man whose differing, yet potent jazz styling only enhanced Kubek's picking and sliding blues. Kubec is on the record as saying “I pull the blues out of him, and he pulls the jazz out of me. Bnois knows so much about jazz it’s amazing.” As a duo, these two were born to perform live; bringing their "powerful, hard-nosed, authentic roadhouse blues…Punchy Texas shuffles, fierce boogies, tough slow blues and mighty fine roots rock” to audiences night after night! (Living Blues)
