LACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room will be hosting the Mr. Nick and the Dirty Tricks Blues Band for the last performance of 2013 on Friday, December 27 at 8 p.m.
The band unites veteran musicians Nick David, "Lonely" Gus Carlson, Teddy Bukowski, and Rick Rousseau for one a night of blues. 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" will be featured during the night. 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 on their way to stages throughout the US and abroad.
"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. It's a blend that wins new converts wherever they perform."
Admission is $12 per person. BYOB. For more information visit www.pitmansfreightroom.com or call 527-0043 or 494-3334.
