Photo Gallery | Sacramento Blues Society & Po' Boyz...Neither missed a beat!
~Sacramento Blues Society ~
If you are a Blues lover and just happened to be in the vicinity of 9580 Oak Avenue Pkwy, #8, Folsom, CA on June 30, your feet were already a tappin’ and that Blues lovers’ smile just lit your face, didn’t it? And as you listened to the drum beat, keyboard and those deep, raspy tones that envelop the soul, well you knew you had arrived at Po’ Boyz! Indeed you had.
Brenda Taylor was there to greet you with her bright eyes and her smile that said “Come on in…we’ve been waitin’ for ya!” And, Liz Walker, President, Sacramento Blues Society, was delightful ~ Liz has the spirit of the Blues and it runs deep within her! To say she is passionate about the Blues is almost an understatement. It’s her life.
Sacramento Blues Society’s event was hosted by Brenda, owner, Po’ Boyz and wow…the audience was on a ‘high’ just listening to Big Earl and the Cryin’ Shame, of Modesto. A second group that lifted the audience’s feet off the dance floor was the boogie woogie queen, Wendy DeWitt!
In between a dance, if you even wished to sit down, you could order Cajun American cuisine that lit the taste buds.
A little history to introduce you to an organization who is keeping the Blues alive ~ for us all! Liz Walker, President, Sacramento Blues Society…
