and the Blues Dawgs
The Club Fox Blues Jam has been going strong for 13 years now and to celebrate lucky 13 we are bringing back one of the most amazing events of contemporary blues history, The Blue Rock'it Blues Revue plus opening the show, multi Blues Award nominee, The Karen Lovely Band featuring Ben Rice.
Many of you recall the Blue Rock'it label as the driving force in progressive blues throughout the 90's. Started by Patrick Ford, Blue Rock'it introduced the world to such greats as Chris Cain, Garth Webber, Michael Osborn, Gabe Ford and of course, The Ford Blues band with Andy Just, Volker Strifler and Dewayne Pate. Those who were fortunate enough to attend one of their revues recall the unbeleivable blues pyrotechnics these shows created. Well it been over 20 years since the last one and now all these heavy hitters are back to do it again.
Opening the show from Portland will be the phenomenal Karen Lovely Band. Karen offers up a blistering mix of contemporary Blues, Blues Rock, and American roots music. Known for her passionate, driven style, this powerhouse vocalist consistently delivers standout performances — both live and in the studio, garnering awards and critical acclaim throughout the US, Canada, Europe, and South America. A multi-award winning artist, Lovely has taken home 7 Muddy Awards for «Performance of the Year», «Best Contemporary Blues Band», «Best Female Artist» and «Best National Recording.» In 2018, she recevied her 4th prestigious Blues Music Award nomination for «Best Contemporary Blues Female Artist» and her 4th Blues Blast Music Award nomination for «Female Blues Artist of the Year.»
