LACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room will host Lisa Marie and the All Shook Up Blues Band on Friday, December 13 at 8 p.m.
Admission is $12 with a special opening performance by the Kid Jazz Band beginning at 7:p.m.
Not only a blues shouter in the tradition of Big Joe Turner and Wynonie Harris, Boston native Lisa Marie carries on the sweet gospel soul of Sam Cooke, the yearning of Hank Williams Sr., and cartoonish fun of Louis Jordan. From jump-swing to swamp boogie, Piedmont blues to funky New Orleans grooves, her deep husky vocals express an unmistakable joy.
Pitman's is a BYOB venue.
