Ark: George Bedard & the Kingpins

Local guitar genius Bedard hosts "Jump Blues: Big Brother to Rock 'n' Roll." his 8th annual History of American Music show. "The small combo jump blues of the '40s and early '50s was, along with country, one of the main tributaries leading to rock 'n roll", says Bedard. "We will thread the show through Big Joe Turner, whose career spanned the boogie-woogie and Kansas City jazz of the '30s to the early rock 'n roll era, and whom I had the honor to play with". Bedard is joined by pianist Mark "Mr. B" Braun, a horn section led by Chris Smith, bassist Pat Prouty, and drummer Rich Dishman. $20. [venue info]
