Save the date! April 16  for That’s Nasty Show at Mac’s Restaurant & Night Club featuring award winning artists Joanne Broh (Best Soul Blues Act 2021, Rainy Day Blues Society), Sonny Hess (Best Lead Guitar by the Cascade Blues Assoc, also holds a nomination for “Lifetime Achievement Award”), Lisa Mann (Blues Music Awards, Instrumentalist-Bass – 2015 & 2016), the rich full bodied voice of Lady Kat True Blue, professional guitar slinger and clever song writer Jason JT Thomas, and local drum wonder Claudia Paige.

The Dirty Blues is a bit of a cliché in some areas, and to many modern ears, it seems more a joke than a legitimate form. But the dirty blues has a long tradition in the blues, and it often resurfaces in modern blues and rock. During the early days of recorded blues, raunchy songs were recorded nearly as often as love songs and laments. These songs were distinguished by their often humorous double entendres and metaphors.

Dirty Blues is a tradition that goes way back to the days JellyRoll Morton and Ma Rainey.  it’s been kept alive throughout the years by Chitlin Circuit artists like Barbara Carr and Denise Lasalle, sadly passed on recently. The show “That’s Nasty” continues this raunchy tradition by presenting dirty blues songs, not only by these classic artists but some new originals as well from the performing artists of this show.  If you love the Blues and aren’t faint of heart, don’t miss this show!
