yee-haw get ready for a night of blues music that will be sure to have you on your feet dancing
The Monday Night Thing presents:
LA-based songwriter, singer and guitarist Lightnin’ Willie has a distinctive approach to his music. It is a compelling, hard swinging brand of blues performed by the self-styled 'biggest little band on earth' that blows audiences away wherever they play. Local blues legends Wolftrain open what will be a fantastic night of blues and R&B.
Lightnin' Willie & the Poorboys have eight studio albums, with their self-titled debut being issued in 1994. The band have opened for musicians including John Mayall, Junior Wells, Robben Ford, and the Chicago Blues All-Stars and have performed at prestigious venues including the Royal Albert Hall, the Brecon Jazz Festival.
Jonny Whiteside, writing in the Los Angeles Times in 2014, stated that the "Los Angeles based bluesman Lightnin’ Willie has developed a particularly intriguing wrinkle on the genre, one that’s cool, airy, with a sinuous groove that infiltrates his audiences’ consciousness and invariably gets them on their feet. He has no quarrel mixing dancing with the blues".
