Blues guitarist and band leader Bobby Murray leads his band in performance at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 14, at the Plymouth Elks Club, 41700 Plymouth Road (734-453-1780). The club is one mile west of I-275.
The Bobby Murray Band will perform as a trio, with Dave Uricek on bass and Ron Pangborn on drums. Also performing will be two outstanding vocalists – Red Redding and Lenny Watkins, who were among the featured singers on the band’s fine new CD, “I’m Sticking With You.”
“We’ll be featuring songs off the CD and, like, the old adage says, ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, and, definitely, something blue,’” Murray said. “We might pull out a surprise or two.”
Admission is a $5 donation.
The Bobby Murray Band featuring Lenny Watkins will also perform Friday and Saturday at the Blue Goose in St. Clair Shores.
Murray performed as a member of the Tosha Owens Band that hosted last Saturday’s Detroit Blues Society Meeting and Jam at the Cooley Lake Inn, where Lifetime Achievement Awards went out to guitarist Jim McCarty and the late piano player Big Maceo Merriweather.
“It was really nice,” reported Murray, a longtime member of the late Etta James' band, who received the DBS Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010. “The place was packed, Jim was great, and the jammers were great.
“And, Tosha Owens is just wonderful.”
