Fri 11/24 @ 8PM
Does Thanksgiving make you blue? Come taste a little hair of the dog at the Beachland Ballroom when two bands featuring legends of the local blues scene perform: The Schwartz Brothers — guitarist Glenn and bassist Gene — and Crazy Marvin & the Blues Express.
Gene Schwartz was a mainstay of the Robert Lockwood Jr All-Stars for many years, while his brother Glenn returned to Cleveland in the early ’70s after performing with Pacific Gas & Electric. He remained known for his fiery guitar playing and his even fierier sermons. Harmonica player/vocalist “Crazy” Marvin Braxton may have slowed down a little bit due to age (he’s now 74) and health issues, but he’s still the consummate entertainer, known for his audience-engaging performances that might find him performing in any corner of the room.
Admission is $10.
