The legendary Watermelon Slim exploded onto the international blues scene in 2007 with music authentic to a life that had lived the blues. Over the years, he has garnered 17 nominations in Blues Music Awards, with multiple wins. His new release, "Church of the Blues", has rocketed in short order to near the top of Billboard's Blues Music chart, and has drawn enormous acclaim from the genre's critics and fans alike.
HARP Magazine wrote "From sizzling slide guitarto nitty-gritty harp blowingto a gruff, resonating Okie twang, Slim delivers acutely personal workingman blues with both hands on the wheel of life, a bottle of hooch in his pocket, and the Bible on the passenger seat." Paste Magazine writes "He's one hell of a bottleneck guitarist, and he's got that cry in his voice that only the greatest singers in the genre have had before him."
Come see a true original perform in an intimate setting. It will be an evening of incredible fun, loaded with meaning, and gives an opportunity to witness true musical genius in person.
VIP opportunities are available.
