September has been a great month at the Buffalo Inn on Blues Monday. On Labor Day JR Tate (Noah Terrell) first charmed the crowd with his rumbling stories and then electrified the place with his music; E.R. Saunders of the Crew stole the show in the first set with an stellar slide guitar performance on Hoochie Coochie Man and Chicken Charlie's set was historical, as he played an old union song and pointed out that the melody was pilferred from a Pop song and the lyrics were replaced with Marxist cheerleading. The night was drawn to a close by Paul Roberts, who seems to be the new raising star of Blues Monday. His finger-style country blues is hypnotic.
Last week Jonny Magic pulled out all the stops for his special guest appearance. Backed by Jerry Riggleman on keyboards, Morgan Chapman on bass, Rick Henderson on drums and Billy Proulx on guitar he fired the crowd up. Jack McCoy and Angie ended the show with a beautiful set.
The Plustones have been rockin' the house every Monday with their special blend of classics. This band is getting scarry-good.
This coming Monday the special guests will be the Vintage Cowboys who have gone from Amy Scruggs' backup band to an excellent country band in their own right.
On the 27th Doug Chapline, the lead guitarist and singer for Reno Jones, will be making his third appearance as special guest on Blues Monday.
Don't miss out. Blues Monday is the best Monday-musical experience in the Inland Empire!!!
