September’s Blues Jam at Buffalo Joe’s

This Article Brought To You By:

When it comes to the blues, the Paris Blues Society brings out their best. Every 3rd Thursday, everyone is invited to settle in at Buffalo Joe’s for an evening of musical collaboration. The best part about the gathering is that every musician is welcomed by the backing band to perform for the crowd at blues loving Buffalo Joe’s!

Setting the night in motion was none other than the Billion Dollar Blues Band. Staley Rogers, Paul Ray Spencer, Tony Boss, Calvin Hickerson, and Chad Altenbaumer, pounded out bass-driven melody with a cool blues attitude. Our favorite tune of their set was “Built for Comfort” by Howlin’ Wolf. Check out the video clip below and don’t miss the BDBB as they will be performing at Blues on the Red   happening October 6th at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds.

The night was just right for the blues. Fred Erben jumped up on stage, grabbed the mic, and jammed with the band. Then switching it up a bit, George Johnson, Bert Hussey, Paul Denney, Bill Allen, and Mike Huggins accompanied local blues legend Rosevelt Twitty on stage for a long awaited return to his love of music. Songs like “Personal Manager” and “Sitting in My Dark Room” draw you in to a bluesy dream. Mr. Twitty will also be making an appearance at Blues on the Red so get ready for a Telecaster treat! See the video clip below for a sneak peek. The night ended with Melissa Millano joining the guys on stage for a beautiful rendition of “At Last” by Etta James. Passing the spotlight back and forth, the musicians served us all our monthly fix of the blues.

The Paris Blues Society’s third Thursday Jam is one of the best music traditions in our area, and Buffalo Joe’s is the perfect place to gather with friends for good times, great food & drink, and LIVE mucic! Find Buffalo Joe’s on Facebook
