Larry Jack’s Magical Music Tour 6/5/14 – 6/10/14

Hey guys,
Well, this is another week that I initially thought would be a slow week on the music scene. After all, the SCAD kids are gone for the summer and that is usually a time when less things should be happening downtown. It even becomes easy to find a parking place down here. As I began to look at the upcoming shows, I realized that I was very wrong. There are several shows that are very exciting this week.

I would strongly recommend trying to catch Cedric Burnside Project at Jinx this Thursday. If you were at the Revival Fest last year, I know that you want to see him. And it is a (for the Jinx) early show, 9:30pm. Of course, there are three bands coming on after him, so you can stay late if you want. Friday brings the blues belter Ruthie Foster to town. I have seen her at Savannah Music Festival a couple times, this time she will be playing on Broughton Street for free (an all ages show, of course). There is another great show on Friday that I hope to catch after Ruthie’s show, the AJ Ghent Band at River Street. He is a steel guitarist and his band played an excellent set at last years’ Midnight Bike Ride at Telfair Square. These are my recommendations for this week:
