BLUES | The Reverend Kingfish 

Influenced by early 20th century Americana, The Reverend Kingfish is on a mission to keep this era alive by mixing blues with Django-esque jazz, Tin Pan Alley, and vaudeville. Sipping from an entire whiskey bottle in between songs, Kingfish has a smooth demeanor that makes you feel at ease. He sings free-spirited sentiments about adultery, hooch, savagery, and bereavement with a deep, mischievous growl. He weaves through old-timey chord changes on guitar, accompanied by bassist Brian Williams and trombonist Rick McCrae. The Reverend Kingfish proves that you don't have to play loud to deliver a romp-stomping good time.

The Reverend Kingfish and friends will perform on Tuesday, January 29, 7:30 p.m. at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. $5. 232-3230.;
