The Blues Unplugged....An intimate, acoustic, stripped down night of blues, blues, and more blues.


Bobby Rush has been performing the blues for nearly seven decades, since the days of juke joints and the chitlin circuit, performing with Jimmy Reed, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Little Walter, & Pinetop Perkins. He is as authentic a bluesman as anyone can be and this lucky audience will be treated to the real blues in its purest form: the man, his voice, and his guitar. 















Kito Kamili is opening the concert, generously sharing her unique blend of traditional & contemporary blues.  This young O.G. is one of the most authentic & original pianists, vocalists, composers, producers, and educators on the planet. It is an honor for her to open the show at her legendary mama's concert series! 

Miss Carol will set the stage with her signature blues renditions after which the legend Bobby Rush will take the stage. Who knows, maybe these two warriors of the blues may even join forces!

Geoffrey's offers a full bar and $12 soul food plates.

This project is supported by the Oakland CIty Council and funded by the City of Oakland's Cultural Funding Program. Presented by A Train Productions with Gamble Girls Music. Thanks to Geoffrey's Inner Circle for support.
