Please join us for a night of blues music and dancing at BJs' Bywater
~ First, free community class lesson with Olandra and Stefanie teaching us the basics of Blues dancing.
~ Then, Sabertooth Swing follows with a set of slow jazz tunes to try those fresh moves y'all just learned.
~ Finally, JD Hill and the Jammers close with a set of of their great electric blues music that is so good to dance on.
JD Hill has been bending his unique style of traditional and electric blues harmonica and vocals into R&B, rock, New Orleans funk, and late-night boogie blues for many decades now, influenced strongly by Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter, Jimi Hendrix, James Cotton, and James Brown. JD has had the honor and privilege to play with many local and global music legends such as Deacon John, Dr. John, James Booker, the Nevilles, Jessie Hill, Earl King, Allen Toussaint, Bo Diddley, Buddy Guy, Stevie Ray Vaughn and too many more to name.
The Sabertooth cats love to bring together different influences and deliver a fun and engaging experience that borrows from different genre and periods. Their music embraces a foot-taping energy supported by serious musicianship and varied influences. They are about to release their debut album “Extinct Possibilities”, coming up at the end of the summer.
