The Bradfordville Blues Club

-- by Kim Anton & Walter Potter

Things are heating up outside and inside the BBC.
This weekend, March 24th and the 25th at 9:00pm

Beautiful Bobby Blackmon & The B3 Band - Friday March 24th at 9:00 PM.
With the incredible entertainment schedule that is offered throughout The Villages, you never have to go very far to find something to do. With live entertainment scheduled 365 days per year, it can become easy to take for granted. One live act that you certainly won’t want to take for granted is Beautiful Bobby Blackmon and his B3 Blues Band.

Blackmon is originally from Athens, Texas, which is a small town outside of Dallas. He attended Texas Southern University and has worked a number of sales jobs over the past 25 years while pursuing his music career. Blackmon currently resides in central Florida, where he has made a name for himself in and around the Orlando area. He is widely known as one of the best local live blues acts and regularly performs at BB King’s blues club in Orlando.

Music starts at 9:00 pm Advance Discounted Tickets are $20.00 with a table reserved in your name. You may purchase your tickets on our website under "tickets" Day of show tickets are $25.00

Lil' Ed & the Blues Imperials - Saturday, March 25th at 9:00 PM
In Chicago, a city overflowing with unrivaled blues talent, world-renowned Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials have been standing tall for almost 30 years. The band’s big sound, fueled by Lil’ Ed’s gloriously rollicking slide work and deep blues string bending, along with his rough-edged, soulful vocals, is as real and hard-hitting as Chicago blues gets. The Chicago Sun-Times says, “Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials are the hottest purveyors of bottleneck boogie to come out of Chicago since Hound Dog Taylor.”

Lil’ Ed Williams comes to the blues naturally. His uncle, Chicago slide guitar king and master songwriter J.B. Hutto, taught him how to feel, not just play the blues. Nine albums and thousands of performances later, Lil’ Ed is now universally hailed as a giant of the genre. Lil' Ed and The Blues Imperials—bassist (and Ed’s half-brother) James “Pookie” Young, guitarist Mike Garrett and drummer Kelly Littleton—have remained together for nearly 30 years (an extraordinary feat for any group), the band fueling Ed’s songs with their rock-solid, road-tested, telepathic musicianship.

The Big Sound Of Lil’ Ed & The Blues Imperials is the musically electrifying, emotionally intense and downright fun new album from the band Guitar Player calls “a snarling boogie-blues machine...they blow down the walls.” The CD features Lil’ Ed’s incendiary playing and playful, passionate singing, with the ragged-but-right Blues Imperials cooking like mad alongside him. Produced by Williams and Alligator president Bruce Iglauer, it is a tour-de-force of authentic, deeply rooted Chicago blues. Williams wrote or co-wrote all but two of album’s 14 songs, the other gems written by Uncle J.B. The Chicago Reader says the band’s music “is a soundtrack for dancing and celebration infused with a sense of hard-won survival. Williams attacks his lyrics like he attacks his guitar: with bare-bones intensity that makes each word sound like a matter of life or death.”
