*** Washboard Slim & The Bluelights play the Best Video Film & Cultural Center deck on Sat., Dec. 4, starting at 6:30 PM. The cover is $15. This is an indoor show so attendance is 30 max. Proof of vaccination is required to enter and masks are required.
After 40 years of playing together, Washboard Slim and the Bluelights has evolved into one of the country's most versatile and original of jug bands incorporating pure Americana instruments like tub bass, washboard, jug, banjo, harmonica, and fiddle. Adding drums and powerful vocal harmonies, this band rocks sold-out concerts, dance halls and family shows. Playing their own compositions as well as original arrangements of traditional gospel, blues, country and early rock n’ roll, their music is by turns playful, haunted and uplifting.
The band for this show is Peter Menta (aka Washboard Slim), Howie Horn, John Pendergast, Brooks Barnett, and Mat Kastner. ***
