DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES, WE ARE CANCELLING TONIGHT'S SHOW (8/5/2023).
Washboard Slim & The Bluelights play an outdoor show at Best Video Film & Cultural Center on Sat., Aug. 5, starting at 5:30 PM.
There will be donation vases for the musicians and the venue. Please consider being generous in supporting musicians—opportunities to perform have been fewer the past couple of years. Suggested donation of $10.
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 - 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.
Parking available behind Best Video and on Thornton Street.
In the event of rain, this show will be moved inside at the regularly scheduled time.
