410 14th Street, Oakland
An Historic Institution in Oakland's Dynamic Downtown District
The Blues Unplugged.... An intimate, acoustic, stripped-down night of blues, blues, and more blues. Bobby Rush has been performing the blues for nearly seven decades, since the days of juke joints and the chitlin circuit, performing with Jimmy Reed, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Little Walter, and Pinetop Perkins. Bobby Rush is as authentic a bluesman as anyone can be and this lucky audience will be treated to the real blues in its purest form: the man, his voice, and his guitar. Miss Faye will set the stage with her signature blues renditions after which the legendary Bobby Rush will take the stage. Who knows, maybe these two warriors of the blues may even join forces...
This is week four of a four-week cross cultural, cross genre series hosted by the Bay Area's Queen Songstress, The Dynamic Miss Faye Carol.
