CIBS Blues Crier :: JULY 2018


JULY 2018

Upcoming Central Iowa Blues Society Events

FRIDAY – JUL 20, 2018 @ 8:00PM
Lefty’s Live Music, 2307 University Ave, DM
Chubby Carrier & the Bayou Swamp Band

DOORS AT 7PM // SHOW AT 8PM

Born in 1967 in Church Point, Louisiana, Chubby Carrier is one of only four artists ever to win a Grammy award in the short-lived “Best Zydeco or Cajun Music Album” category. A third-generation member of the legendary Carrier family, Chubby has spread his love of his music and his culture to thousands, possibly millions worldwide in his 30 year career that began when he started playing drums in his Father’s band at age 12. His mission in life is to ignite joy, love and passion in the hearts of all who hear him play. Most of all, he plays to spread the gospel of Zydeco.

This is Zydeco for the 21st century…” Living Blues Magazine

SUNDAY – JUL 22, 2018 @ 6:30PM
Wooly’s, 504 E Locust St, Des Moines, IA
Jimmie Vaughan & Tilt-A-Whirl

Opening Performance by Bob Pace
DOORS AT 5:30PM // SHOW AT 6:30PM

Jimmie Vaughan is far more than just one of the greatest and most respected guitarists in the world of popular music. As Guitar Player Magazine notes, “He is a virtual deity–a living legend.” After all, Vaughan provides a vital link between contemporary music and its proud heritage, as well as being a longtime avatar of retro cool.

Jimmie was a founding member of The Fabulous Thunderbirds, has won four Grammy Awards, and has a triple platinum record for Jimmie & Stevie Ray Vaughan’s – Family Style commemorating over one million copies sold.

SUNDAY – AUG 12, 2018 @ 7:00PM
Noce, 1326 Walnut St, DM
Curtis Salgado
Doug Deming & the Jewel Tones

DOUBLE BILL! DOORS OPEN AT 6:00 // SHOW AT 7:00

CURTIS SALGADO — Award-winning soul, blues and R&B vocalist Curtis Salgado’s earth-shaking vocals and forceful harmonica playing have been devastating audiences around the world for over 30 years. Guitarist Alan Hager has been wowing fellow musicians from his hometown of Portland, Oregon and beyond for decades. Hager has been jamming with Salgado since 2003, and joined his band full-time in 2015. Together, the two blues fans and friends took time out of their busy touring schedule to record Rough Cut, a stripped-down album featuring a potent mix of newly written, timeless originals and carefully chosen blues covers. “We did it for the love of the music,” says Salgado. “This is where our hearts are. These are deep songs that we love to play.”

That love comes through loud and clear on Rough Cut. Produced by Salgado and Hager, the 13 songs on the album (including six originals) range from plaintive to playful. Recorded in one live unrehearsed take, the original I Will Not Surrender, with its haunting and sparse soundscape, showcases some of Hager’s strongest guitar work, and some of the most profoundly emotive vocals Salgado has ever laid down. The canine-lover’s anthem, I Want My Dog To Live Longer (The Greatest Wish), is already a huge fan favorite. Salgado’s soulful singing and Hager’s elegant slide guitar playing shine on Elmore James’ You Got To Move and Muddy Waters’ I Can’t Be Satisfied. “He’s the best player in the business, unlike anybody else,” Salgado says of Hager. “One reason I made this record was to show him off.”

DOUG DEMING & THE JEWEL TONES — Doug Deming is an American blues and roots guitarist/vocalist, born and raised in the Detroit area, currently residing on the Gulf coast of Florida. Doug is the 2013 recipient of the Blues Blast Music Awards’ Sean Costello Rising Star Award. Drawing influence from greats like T-Bone Walker, Charlie Christian and Robert Jr. Lockwood, Doug’s traditional taste and style are evident in his original music, with three recordings of primarily original tunes to his credit. Throughout his 20+ year career Doug has enjoyed touring and recording with many top blues artists, including Kim Wilson, Gary Primich, Lazy Lester, Alberta Adams, AC Reed and Johnny “Yard Dog” Jones to name a few; as well as with his own band featuring various artists such as Greg “Fingers” Taylor, Terry Hanck, Steve Guyger and Dennis Gruenling. Doug Deming & the Jewel Tones play traditional blues, West Coast and Texas swing, and early 50s roots rock. This is real deal rocking’ rhythm & blues!
