Reckless Steamy Friday Nights

Moose Boles

Friday, 25 September 2015 ~ 8:30 - 11:00 pm

Red Bank Blues Band

The Two River area itself boasts a superb ensemble in the form of The Red Bank Blues Band, affectionately known to the locals as "RB3." With a sound incorporating blues with a hint of jazz, RB3 conveys a somewhat smooth blues sound, in contrast to a raw, "down home" blues delivery, ala John Lee Hooker or Muddy Waters (although founding member Paul Bracco can growl with the best of them when the situation arises).
