Blazzues, Pensacola’s hottest downtown spot for the very best in blues, jazz and funk, will be stompin’ and wailin’ on Thursday, September 9th as they welcome back the dynamic duo of Hollowman/Badwater, and this time, they brought company. Gulf Coast blues legend Jeff Glickman will be sitting in with our hurdy gurdy heroes for what promises to be an explosive evening filled with the bottom line best country fried blues you can find. Mixing Glickman’s classic pick and strum harmonies and smooth voice coupled with Hollowman and Badwater’s aggressive nitty gritty style will make for a unique musical experience the likes of which you will not find anywhere else. It don’t get much better than this, folks. Add that to the already fantastic atmosphere of Blazzues, and you got yourself something sweeter than Yoo-Hoo.
Looking to open up a new chapter in their already storied musical journey, Betsy Badwater and her brother in music, Lang Hollowman, have stripped things down a bit more since the departure of percussionist Kate Merrill, and have done away with the “The Hillbilly Chrome” and have instead opted to keep the band intact as a power duo, focusing not just on Betsy’s soul stirring voice and songwriting, but equally on Lang’s mastery of damn near anything with strings. Hollowman/Badwater is exactly what you get when two musicians were simply meant to play together.
Jeff Glickman’s ride on the blues bus has been as storied as it has been enjoyable. Some people like the blues a lot and some people love it. Jeff Glickman, on the other hand, lives and breathes the blues. Having jammed with the best of the best for many years, Glickman formed the Panhandle All-Stars and began solidifying his place as one of the very best blues men that the Gulf Coast has to offer. Now on a solo venture, Glickman has been throwing down regularly at several blues joints around Pensacola and the surrounding area.
Please join Blazzues in welcoming Hollowman/Badwater with special guest Jeff Glickman. You can’t get this stuff anywhere else.
