Missionary Blues brought their wonderful “juke joint style” to the not-unbearably-hot lunchtime show in The Yard at The Grey, and Chef Mashama Bailey prepared a menu of brisket or mushroom tacos, corn on the cob, black beans and rice, and slaw. $21 covers the food, music, and one drink (choices on Saturday were red and white wine, Genesee Cream Ale, and Chatham Artillery Punch).
The next Stopover in The Yard is scheduled for 9/19. Bands for the next several events should be announced soon.
If I’m going to keep taking pictures at these things, I need to bring my bigger camera. I struggle a bit with my Fujifilm x100t in strong daylight, and I need to be able to zoom a little closer on the bands without having to be the only guy standing right in front of them. Hit the jump for more.
