LACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room at 94 New Salem Street will host John Primer and the Real Deal Blues Band on Saturday, November 8 at 8 pm.
Admission is $20 in advance $25 at door and Pitman's is a BYOB venue.
Grammy Award Nominee and Handy Award Nominee, John Primer is truly "The Real Deal" Fresh off the heels of his great success with the Muddy Waters Band, John signed on with the legendary Magic Slim. For the next 14 years, he toured with Magic Slim & The Teardrops, bringing tight, house-rocking sounds to every corner of the earth.
But John's days as a sideman were numbered with his solo career taking off in the early to mid-90s with the critically acclaimed album "Stuff You Got To Watch," for Earwig Music in '93, and in '95 the veteran blues man released the critically acclaimed "The Real Deal," on Code Blue. He has since toured extensively in support of his ten solo albums to date.
Catered dinner buffet available before the show. Call 527-0043 for details and reservations.
