The concert on Thursday, March 14, 2013 at 7pm features an evening of the essence of classic blues with the acclaimed FILTHY RICH & THE POOR BOYS in concert. Filthy Rich and the Poor Boys members include Rich MacPherson, a/k/a "Filthy Rich", Ken Nerback, a/k/a "Big Boy Kenny" and David Sang, a/k/a "Blind Dave".
Rich has played on stages from Maine to Florida, including The House of Blues in Boston, The Stanhope House in New Jersey and Manny's Car Wash and Chicago B.L.U.E.S. in New York City. He's shared the stage with blues greats including; Homesick James, William Clarke, Snooky Pryor, Little Sammy Davis, Jimmie Lee Robinson, Pinetop Perkins, Bobbie Blue Bland, Jimmy Dawkins, Honeyboy Edwards, James Cotton and Big Jack Johnson. He and the Poor Boys are featured on a live recording by Homesick James.
During a two-year hitch in the U.S. Army, Ken learned his first three guitar chords and was hooked on string instruments. He played guitar in a few "garage" bands and developed his sense of rhythm. He was even lucky enough to sit in with the late Roy Buchanan at a club in Camden, New Jersey. Ken took over the bass duties with Wreckless Abandon, and later moved on to Roadside Louie and the Dusters and Johnny Charles. Appearances with Homesick James, James Cotton, Honey Boy Edwards, Pinetop Perkins, Jimmy Dawkins, Magic Slim and the Teardrops, David Maxwell, Snooky Pryor and Luther Guitar Junior Johnson gave Ken the opportunity to sharpen his skills by playing with these great blues artists. Today Ken can be heard on electric bass and upright. His love of the blues and the pure joy he experiences playing for an audience are obvious every time he takes the stage with Filthy Rich and the Poor Boys.
David grew up on Long Island, New York listening to music and learning how to play drums at an early age. Blues became his musical choice of direction. He has had the honor of drumming for Snooky Pryor, Homesick James, Honeyboy Edwards, Steve Guyger, Little Sammy Davis, Jimmy Dawkins, Pinetop Perkins and Jimmie Lee Robinson and has appeared on the bill with many other great musicians. Says David; "Executing a greasy, seamless, dynamic groove and maintaining a sensitive approach to backing up the bandleader is what is important to me musically. My goal is to always focus on trying to make the bandleader and band sound great." David continues to enjoy playing his deep blues with Filthy Rich and the Poor Boys.
