Juke Joint Devils Contributed / Nadine Zdanovich

A Juke Joint Devils concert is set for 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 28, at Somerset Abbey, 98 Main St. in Madison.

The old school Jump (blues) and Swing combo draws heavily from the Chicago, Memphis and New Orleans blues of the 1950s, as well as the modern West Coast style of today. In addition to quintessential jump and swing chestnuts of the past, the band performs similarly styled, self-penned numbers rooted in post war blues (‘50s) and infused with a twist informed by the modern American experience.
The band has performed at the nationally recognized Blues in the Barn music series in Kingfield, the Red Parka Blue Sunday blues series in Glen, New Hampshire, the North Atlantic Blues Festival, the Old Orchard Blues Festival, the Maine Blues Festival, as well as last summer’s Make A Wish Foundation fundraiser.

Additionally, the band stays sharp performing at New England area festivals, bars and dances. Together for a dozen years, the band includes founding member, Tommy O’Connell on blues harp and vocals, Steve Lynnworth on guitar, Mark S. Horn on drums and Andy Buckland on upright bass.
This is a 21-plus show.

Tickets cost $15 per person and are sold by the table.
