Just a few short weeks following their last show at Duff’s Garage, Los Angeles-based blues-roots band The 44s will be making a return trip for an encore performance on Saturday, September 14th. This is a group of road dogs, constantly on the move across the country and they have found a huge following in Portland, making it one of their favorite stops.  Their outstanding blend of Chicago and West Coast styled blues driven by the sizzling guitar and vocals of Johnny Main alongside harmonica master Tex Nakamura is without doubt some of the hottest material stemming from the West Coast today.

The 44s Portland shows are becoming extremely popular, with crowds increasing with every appearance. Make plans early to catch them as they come back to Duff’s Garage, 1635 SE 7th. Showtime is 9:00 with a $12.00 admission at the door. This is a Cascade Blues Association co-sponsored event, so you can receive a $1.00 discount when showing your current membership card when you enter.
