LACONIA — Friday September 13 at 8 p.m. Pitman's Freight Room will host Mr. Nick and The Dirty Tricks:
The group unites veteran musicians Nick David (a.k.a. Mr. Nick), "Lonely" Gus Carlson, Teddy B. (Bukowski) and Rick Rousseau for one of the region's most formidable live outfits in any genre.
But their hearts belong to blues. Real blues. They play elegant, stomping and swinging classics like Little Walter's "Mellow Down Easy," Howlin' Wolf's "300 Pounds of Joy" and Wynonie Harris' "Good Morning Judge." Their bag of originals is a mix of rhumbas, jump blues, and boogies they're developing for a debut album and currently taking to legions of fans in New England.
"This band is a killer outfit," says David. And that's the truth. Everything comes together when they play: their deep mutual understanding and knowledge of blues, their originality and depth as players, and the band's ability to put on a great show that brings people to their feet.
Admission $12, doors open at 7:30 p.m. and Pitman's is a BYOB Venue. For more information check the website www.pitmansfreightroom.com or call 603-527-0043.
