Bob on Bowens
The annual Blues on the Dock events are always a fun part of Piccolo Spoleto's Blues & Jazz series. The views at Sol Legare Creek are absolutely gorgeous from the rustic restaurant's spacious dock. The soulful sounds are even sweeter in such a bucolic setting.
local cats, heavyweight visiting acts
Bob Margolin Band — led by modern blues electric/acoustic guitarist Steady Rollin' Bob Margolin —performs one of the most anticipated shows of the series on June 6. Local player Nature Boy Nik opens the show. Blues on the Dock also features Steve James, Momma Blues Palace Revue, Louie Dixson, Ed "Porkchop" Meyer, and Smoky Weiner's own band, The Hot Links.
Margolin is the real deal
As most local blues musicians and fans already know, Margolin has a massive resumé, having played alongside Muddy Waters for nine years, as well as stints with Johnny Winter, Paul Butterfield, Levon Helm, and Pine Top Perkins.
