"Big Jon is truly the future of the Blues!" -Kim Wilson of The Fabulous Thunderbirds
Once again the Southern Arizona Blues Heritage Foundation joins with The Boondocks Lounge and KXCI to present the best of the best Blues talent available. The all volunteer, non-profit SABHF has a mission to support, present, promote and educate regarding Blues music and culture in Southern Arizona. Combining young up and coming artists with Blues veterans is a great way to do this.
Big Jon Atkinson was born in Tennessee in 1988. This is important because this young man with an old soul delivers the Blues like a grizzled veteran. He sings with imposing power, blows harmonica with enormous tone and plays guitar like he was born with it. He is also a fine drummer and bass player. He has an entire understanding of the ensemble approach to Blues music. Close your eyes and you would think it was 1955 in some neighborhood bar on Chicago's Southside. Jon has released two CDs of his own on the Bluebeat label. Both have garnered rave reviews. His new national release on Delta Groove Records is racing up the charts. It all comes down to this, Big Jon Atkinson is the real deal.
Bob Corritore is internationally known as one of today's premier harmonica players. He has been nominated for multiple Blues Music Awards, Living Blues Awards and even a Grammy. As a sideman on at least sixty albums and eighteen of his own, his resume is second to none. Pinetop Perkins, John Primer, Henry Gray, Tail Dragger, Bob Margolin and Jimmy Rogers are just a few of the stars he's shared stage and studio with.
"House Party At Big Jon's" is the new album on Delta Groove. It's loaded with special guests including Tomcat Courtney, Willie Buck, Kim Wilson and Alabama Mike. Along with Big Jon and Bob Corritore the upcoming concert will include Marty Dodson on drums and Kedar Roy on bass. Both perform with Kim Wilson's Blues All Stars. The fun takes place at The Boondocks Lounge Friday September 16, 2016. The show starts at 8:00 PM. Tickets are available at The Boondocks for $12 in advance. Day of show tickets are $15 with a $3 discount for SABHF and KXCI members.
