The Bradfordville Blues Club

-- by Gary Anton

The Lee Boys - Friday, August 4th at 9:00 PM
On Friday, Aug. 4, we've got the hard driving sacred steel of The Lee Boys. This unique 5 piece ensemble will get you movin' and groovin', shakin' and quakin', and sweatin' and swingin'. High energy, great music, cryin' peddle steel guitar and fabulous vocal harmonies that won't let you sit still. Sacred steel is a unique form of Gospel music with an inspired, blues based groove fueled by screamin' and wailin' pedal steel guitar. It's soulful, electric, funky, intense and inspiring. This ain't sittin' and listenin' music folks. If it doesn't get you raisin' cane on the dancefloor, it'll sho'nuff get you slappinn' your knees and stompin' you feet. They've heated up over 100 major festivals, including headlining at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Memphis in May, Bonnaroo, High Sierra, Austin City Limits, Philadelphia Folk Festivals, MerleFest, DelFest, Wanee, the Purple Hatters Ball and All Good Festival. These guys are GOOD and HOT!!! You got to experience it to believe it.

Mac Arnold & Plate Full O' Blues - Saturday, August 5th at 9:00 PM
It's another Mac attack on Saturday, August 5 at 9:00 pm when the legendary Mac Arnold & Plate Full O' Blues serve up another 5 star BBC entree. Mac always plays to a packed house and for good reason. From my review from one of his earlier shows: "Mac Arnold kept up the festivities with another blazing boondocks blues to the bone throwdown! The show sold out on Friday and we had to turn away folks at the door. The atmosphere was electric and it energized the band who kept the place shakin' until dancers, fans and musicians were spent. Mac is the blues. His vocals were gutsy and gritty. His stage presence warm and funny. His hand-made gas can guitars brought the blues to life. All the while, he had a smile on his face from ear to ear. Mac is a treasure who will be back to the backwoods soon. Damn, he was good!!!!!"

This 2010 Blues Music Award winner and 2012 nominee, and former Muddy Waters, James Brown, BB King, John Lee Hooker and Otis Redding sideman and producer of Soul Train cooks up a stew of old school Chicago blues, countrified blues roots, social commentary and gut bucket southern offerings that will satisfy the most discerning blues fan's pallet. Mac's presentation is fittin' for the rustic corner stage where he entertains with humor, stage presence and home made gas can guitars while he dishes out his multiple course of blues offerings on guitar, bass and vocals. This is the best of the best of blues. Here is what others have to say about Mac:

"This is old-school at its finest". Blues Review

"Mac Arnold is a key part of blues history. He really is unique in that he connects his life and music to the Mississippi Delta, Chicago, and the South Carolina blues tradition. And it is rare that these worlds are ever linked together as they are in the life and music of Mac."--From the film documentary NOTHING TO PROVE: The Story of Mac Arnold's Return to the Blues

"A plate full of blues? Hell this is the whole dang meal". Creative Loafing

Mac's culinary crew of master chefs include Austin Brashier on guitar and vocals, and the multi-talented Max Hightower on keyboards, harmonica, and vocals. These guys are hot, tight, talented and perfectly suited for Mac.
When not cooking on stage, Mac passes his time as an organic farmer in South Carolina. He has his own restaurant and the annual Cornbread & Collard Greens Blues Festival in Greer, SC. A DON'T MISS! The real deal!
