A small venue with only 132 seats, the Arts Council’s Centre for the Arts is a dream for musicians and audiences alike. The stage has held such musical luminaries as Catfish Hodge, Steve Abshire, Stef Scaggiari, Sue Matthews, and Vince Lewis. On Saturday, April 27th at 7:00 p.m. the Blueskeepers, a blues and soul influenced band will perform at the Centre for a benefit concert. The four member band includes B. B. Sutton on bass guitar and vocals, Steven (Jerome) McGovern on harp and vocals, Jeff (Money) Miller on drums and James McCarty on guitar, dobro and vocals.
Each member brings with them a history with all types of bands; but it is their deep love and respect for blues and soul music that has united them. The Blueskeepers Band will perform a variety of classics from blues and soul including music from blues masters Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Howlin’ Wolf and T-Bone Walker and soul musicians such as Ray Charles and James Brown as well as some original tunes. The band has four CDs to date including “Mustang Sally”, “Can’t Be Satisfied”, “Merry Way” and “Ugly Stick”. The Blueskeepers Band provide a foot stomping show that will leave audiences feeling anything but blue.
The performance is at the Centre for the Arts at 206 S. Commerce Street in Centreville, Maryland. Tickets can be purchased for $10 for Queen Anne’s County Arts Council members and $15 for non members and at the door. Cash bar. Please call 410.758.2520 for information.
