3/16 – Evan Thomas Blues
Evan Thomas has that thang. It’s in his inner soul, and that feeling which captures a down home essence, the foot stompin’, and head – nodding style, of the old Mississippi delta blues tone. It’s the grit, in his soulful voice and his cryin’ guitar which sets him apart. He plays Chicago style Blues in its form like artists; Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Jimmie Rodgers, Bo Diddley and others. All of these artists followed the Chicago Blues movement. This form of blues music is indigenous to Chicago, Illinois. Chicago blues is a type of urban blues. Urban blues evolved from classic blues as a result of the great depression and developed in the first half of the twentieth century. Evan Thomas’s classic, electric blues guitar style, is influenced by some of the great guitar players of our time, BB King, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Kenny “Blue” Ray and Jimi Hendrix. Evan Thomas Blues Revue features some of the best Blues performers from in and around the Bay Area. The Band is experienced and packs a potent show full of style and tone. Something fans of the Blues will not soon forget.

She is jaunty with stage personality and voice that can’t help but make you smile and want more. You won’t find a truer rock and roll diva anywhere, and it’s no surprise to anyone.
