2nd Guitarmageddon Blues Ball: Celebration of Texas Blues in SF


Blues Ball 2011 by John Margaretten
The musical theme for the Second Annual Guitarmageddon Blues Ball, taking place Friday, April 27 at Slim's in San Francisco, is The Texas Blues. Come celebrate the blues, and the music of Stevie Ray Vaughan, ZZ Top, and other Austin guitar heroes with noted Bay Area guitar slingers Josh Clark (Tea Leaf Green), Sean Leahy (Sean Leahy Trio), Simon Kurth (Huckle), Ryan Smith (4 Year Bender), and Jeff Miller (New Monsoon). Joining this alumni cast of Guitarmageddon will be some surprise special guest!

This evening will also be the official CD release party for the Sean Leahy Trio. Straight ahead, driving rock n roll, Sean's new record Darkness and Light has been getting rave reviews from both fans and critics alike. Although Sean is known for his impressive guitar soloing chops, this album really showcases both his songwriting and singing talents. The Sean Leahy Trio will perform at 9:15 pm. Read more about Leahy and his new album in this recent JamBase interview.

Kicking off the evening at 8:30 pm will be Huckle, a new trio on the scene comprised of seasoned touring musicians. With an eclectic sound reminiscent of the John Butler Trio, Ben Harper, and The Black Keys, Huckle's positive message and unique vibe is sure to entertain.
