Two of the Pacific Northwest’s most powerful blues beltin’ ladies will both be appearing on the same show at Duff’s Garage on Saturday, November 8th. Seattle’s Stacy Jones, the winner of the Washington Blues Society Best of the Blues (BB) Award in 2014 for Female Vocalist teams up with the Cascade Blues Association 2013 Duffy Bishop Female Vocalist of the Year recipient Rae Gordon (and Rae is nominated again this year). Both front extraordinarily strong bands and are sure to ignite the stage with some fiery, jump out of your seat and hit the dance floor blues.
Stacy Jones does not make it down to the Portland area too often and her music has lately taken on a blend of country, folk and Americana alongside her soulful blues. A multi-talented artist, she plays guitar, harmonica, writes her own music and has four albums to her credit.
Rae Gordon needs no introduction to the music fans in Portland. A multi-winner of the Muddy Awards, she is also this year’s winning band in the CBA’s Journey to Memphis competition and will be heading to Memphis to participate in the International Blues Challenge this January. Every show between now and then will help raise funds to get the band to Tennessee and see that they’re fed well, too.
Duff’s Garage is located at 2530 NE 82nd and this show will have a 9:00 pm start time. Admission is only $10.00, a real steal for two great acts. Plus, you can receive a $1.00 discount by showing your membership card at the door for this CBA co-sponsored event.
