And by replacements, we don’t meant the band the Replacements, although that would be cool, too. We mean award-winning bluesmen Sugar Ray Norcia and Monster Mike Welch!
While their leader recovers from shoulder surgery, the Duke Robillard Rhythm Section will rock the John Brown House Museum lawn with a little help from some legendary entertainers this week. Bluetones founder Sugar Ray Norcia, a Grammy-nominated harp player and blues singer, will be joined by guitarist Monster Mike Welch, one of the best in the business with a sterling worldwide reputation as a player par excellence.
Though we will miss the great Duke, we’re thrilled that he took the time to find such outstanding surrogates for this July 16 Concert Under the Elms. The show starts at 6:30, and Citizen Wing is the partnering food truck for the evening. Granny Squibb’s and Ellie’s Bakery’s Macaron Millie will also be in attendance, offering local beverages and desserts.
Help us send Duke some get well wishes in the form of cheers for his peers on Thursday!
