On Tuesday, May 28 electric blues fans in the Quad Cities will get a treat they've been longing for since September. That's the day J. P. Soars & the Red Hots return to the Quad Cities. When they played at Kavanaugh's on September 19 they left dropped jaws all over the place. It's hard to describe the sound of a band with its roots deep in the blues but influenced by Miles Davis and Black Sabbath. Some called it Psychedelic Blues.

Late May will be a good time to close to either river so we're putting this show in the Riverfront Grille (formerly Martini's On The Rock), 4619 34th Street Ct W, Rock Island, Illinois. The music will start at 7:00 p.m. and will only cost you $12.00 or $10.00 for MVBS members.

JP Soars

If you like the local blues scene in the Quad Cities, you like Blues Rock-It. The band is led by Boogs Malone, a solid and soulful singer who is also an excellent guitarist. Our local legend, "Detroit" Larry Davison, backs up Boogs with his always outstanding harmonica playing. Josh Green adds more vocals and guitar plus some ear candy from the keyboard. Ian Farmer's steady bass playing keeps the bottom right and Jim Van Hyfte's drumming drives this band as well as he's done with the other bands you've probably heard him with.

This edition of RME's Live @ 5 is excellent opportunity to get warmed up for the July 5 & 6 Mississippi Valley Blues Festival and to get the latest info about it.

This is an all-ages free show.
