ZORA YOUNG with special guest WES MACKEY


The Rockfish Grill welcomes Chicago Blues Diva, Zora Young 8 PM Thursday, Sept 7. Cover is $8 @ the door.

Despite the prominent presence of celebrated blues artist Howlin' Wolf in her family tree, singer Zora Young grew up singing not blues, but gospel. Even when the Mississippi native shook off her roots at the age of seven to relocate with family to Chicago, she attended the Greater Harvest Baptist Church and continued to sing gospel. It wasn't until later that she switched over to R&B, and evolved into a powerhouse blues vocalist with three decades of experience behind her.

She has performed with a long list of artists, including Junior Wells, Jimmy Dawkins, Bobby Rush, Buddy Guy, Professor Eddie Lusk, Albert King, and B.B. King. Her recording credits include collaborations with Willie Dixon, Sunnyland Slim, Mississippi Heat, Paul deLay, and Maurice John Vaughn, among others. Her own recordings as a solo artist include releases from the labels Deluge, Black Lightning, and Delmark. Young has also performed on television and on-stage. She is a veteran of more than 30 tours of Europe, and she has been a featured performer many times at the Chicago Blues Festival.

"Young sings with an inner strength that holds fast and proud to her longtime allegiance with the blues…she has the same sort of smoldering soul ache that once informed the wailing of Big Maybelle- no small praise." - DOWNBEAT


Wes Mackey: Over the course of a long and diverse career, Wes Mackey has moved from sideman to frontman, from the dusty honky tonks of Augusta Georgia to first class venues around the world.


Mackey learned to play the guitar from the seasoned old blues players of the Deep South where he was born and raised, and he is glad to have been part of that great bygone era. It was 40 some years ago that he began working in small local juke joints and eventually found himself playing in bands that backed up greats like Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker and Jimmy Reed.


Mackey has been a master of many styles of playing, but in 2003 he decided to return to his blues roots and released the album, "Second Chance". To his surprise it reached the top of many Canadian charts including CUIT of the Toronto Blues Society and was chosen by Real Blues Magazine as one of the Best Canadian Releases for 2003.


His latest CD, "Mr. Blues", has been receiving rave reviews. John Valenteyn of Toronto Blues Society says “Wes Mackey's second album is an extremely satisfying CD … highly recommended. See Magazine also says `it's an early runner for 2006 top ten lists in Canada” and the song Angelgirl was nominated as a semi-finalist in the highly respected International Songwriting Competition.


When you see Wes Mackey perform you know that he is in his element and that he loves every minute of it. QUAI DU BLUES in Paris says “..he has that rare quality only truly great blues artists have: to create an immediate and unforgettably intimate connection with his listeners..”

FIRKIN FRIDAYS


On Firkin Fridays, the Rockfish Grill offers cask conditioned versions of Anacortes ales. Cask conditioning is an English tradition that allows the beer to finish its fermentation in the barrel or "firkin" resulting in a character and complexity unique from any other beer. We'll offer a different variety every Friday served directly from the firkin with a traditional English hand pump. There's one batch a week and we pour till its gone, so get it while you can!

TERRY EVANS

Join us 8:00 PM Thursday, Sept 21st for a special appearance by blues and soul vocal legend Terry Evans. Admission for the evening is $8.

Terry Evans' musical journey began in Vicksburg, Mississippi where he was born in 1944. As a young man, he sang tenor, baritone and bass in the church choir while secretly listening to the likes of Elmore James, Little Walter and Albert King.

At the age of 22, Evans moved to Los Angeles where he sang in several South Central clubs including the Cotton Club and the Road Runner. It was here he hooked up with singing partner, Bobby King, and in 1976, the two joined Ry Cooder for Chicken Skin Music.

Both Evans and King have worked on several of Cooders albums over the years, including the current Chavez Ravine, and have toured extensively in Cooder's band. The two also teamed for a pair of well received solo albums.

As a solo artist, Evans has released several recordings including 2005's excellent, Fire in the Feeling. He has also recorded with some of the top people in the music business including Boz Skaggs, Maria Muldaur, John Lee Hooker and John Fogerty with whom he won a gold record for Eye of the Zombie.

On Fire in The Feeling, his voice is as rich as ever. On the Ry Cooder-penned “My Baby Joined the Army”, Evans emotes the pain of loss through his voice and guitar and captures the despair of Cooder’s lyrics. “Let’s Get Gone” and “Turn on Your Lovelight” are straight ahead groove-laced blues rockers and “I’ll Be Your Shelter (In the Time of Storm)” is a gospel-tinged track reminiscent of The Blind Boys of Alabama. The album was produced by Terry and Phil Bloch. Special guests include David Lindley, Jorge Calderon, and George Bohannon.

Ry Cooder has said that he always thought that his long time musical partner made a better "front man." You need only see a Terry Evans show to understand why. As a performer, he remains in constant demand, and as a recording artist, he is one of the most sought after singers in the business.
