The Bradley MacGillivray Blues Band

Doors 9pm/Show 9:30pm

Through groove, improv, and raw unadulterated emotion, Bradley McGillivray Blues take the blues and turn it on its head. They play with authenticity whether its an uptown jazz shuffle, gritty Mississippi blues, or New Orleans funk. Influenced by artists like Warren Haynes, Robben Ford, Janis Joplin and Etta James, they showcase an impressive repertoire of original music and signature covers.

The band’s been together since 1999, blending blues, jazz, Motown and gospel into their own hip brand of soul. Ruth’s knock-you-flat vocals are nicely balanced by Sheldon’s tasteful, understated guitar, and the whole sound is rounded out by an inventive rhythm section featuring bassist Paul Freeman, and drummer Hoto.
