We are excited to announce Multi-GRAMMY® Nominated & Rock and Roll and Blues Hall of Fame Guitarist Elvin Bishop and GRAMMY® Award Winning and Harmonica Master Charlie Musselwhite will grace our stage on WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 13 at 8 PM. We are thrilled to have these two music legends play at JIMMY’S JAZZ & BLUES CLUB!! To watch and listen to Elvin and Charlie supported by our new state-of-the-art production, sound & lighting technologies will be outstanding!! This is one show not to miss!! ROLLING STONE had this to say about Bishop….”A legendary guitarist” whose playing is “impeccable and spirited…a distinguished American player.” SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE said this about Musselwhite…”Harmonica virtuoso Musselwhite raises the level of emotional expression on his instrument beyond even the masters he learned from…”

Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame guitarist Elvin Bishop and Grammy winning harmonica player Charlie Musselwhite dropped their first ever album as a duo, 100 Years of Blues, a few months ago and will be playing this album for you. Both have long, distinguished musical careers that reach back to the 1960s, have toured the world and elsewhere, and have tracked dozens of albums but have never released a record of just the two of them putting out their blues. That's a little surprising, considering that they are close friends and fishing buddies, but life is busy when you are among the finest blues musicians in the world. Produced by Kid Andersen, 100 Years of Blues is a lowdown, back porch type of session that features nine new original songs by Elvin and Charlie and covers of numbers by Roosevelt Sykes, Leroy Carr and Sonny Boy Williamson. It is the kind of set blues fans love the best unadorned, raw, and real, with nothing to get in the way of what these two do best.
