Published DateLACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room at 94 New Salem Street in Laconia is pleased to present The Rackey Thomas Blues Band Friday Evening February 1 at 8 p.m.
The Racky Thomas Band has been a torchbearer for the blues since its formation in 1995, when Racky Thomas collaborated with bassist Todd Carson, guitarist Nick Adams, and drummer Ted Larkin to make a demo cd, and do some gigs around the Boston area.
Racky Thomas has a vast repertoire of tunes – blues from world-class bluesmen, plantation gospel (the original blues), rocking electric blues, classic and obscure blues, and Racky Thomas blues, including "Matchbox Blues", "Biscuit-Bakin' Woman", "Mona", "Sugar-coated Love", "Big Road Blues", "Hoochie-Coochie Man", and "Mojo Workin'.
Gutsy vocals, down and dirty harmonica, smoking guitar, a killer rhythm section delivering pure unadulterated blues, and you've got the Racky Thomas Band. Twice nominated for Boston Music Awards, and winners of the 1997 Battle of the Blues bands, people only need to experience them once to become a believer. Admission is $10, doors open at 7:15 p.m. and Pitman's is a BYOB venue.
