RCBS Wednesday Blues Shows


The River City Blues Society has had a successful run of Wednesday Blues Shows in Pekin, Illinois.  However, like all good things, it's going to come to an end, at least for the time being.

The GOOD news:  There is ONE remaining shows for you to catch, though!  The remaining show will take place at Goodfellas Pub & Pizza (map) on 8th Street in Pekin.  Show will still start at 7pm and run until 9 or 10pm.  Don't miss the last chance for great BLUES in your backyard at an early time for a bargain price!

The LAST show is:

September 16 - Eddie Turner


Raised in Chicago, Eddie "devilboy " Turner picked up his first guitar, a candy apple multi-pickup Japanese Tiesco, when he was twelve.

"Otherworldly", "scorching", "polyrhythmic" and "chilling" have all been used to describe Eddie Turnerís guitar playing. His ethereal style is an amalgam of the Afro-Cuban rhythms of his heritage and the music that influenced him as a teenager: Chicago blues, jazz, r&b and psychedelic rock. The Cuban-born singer/guitarist cut his teeth in several rock bands contributing what Slate magazine describes as "spacey-yet-resounding solos."
