The Smokin’ Polecats
Drum and Strum, 102 Main Street, Warrenton, 8 p.m.
The Gloria Faye Dingus Music Alliance is pleased to welcome to the listening room The Smokin’ Polecats. Bill Wax of WPFW FM Radio said it best when he said, “The Smokin’ Polecats play the blues in all styles and for all tastes.” They are the best blues band in the DMV. It’s the years and depth of experience that the Polecats share that have afforded them that reputation. Their sound comes from the Post-World War II ensemble sound of the Chicago Masters like Jimmy Rogers, Little Walter, and Hubert Sumlin; the West Coast Jump/Swing sound of Tiny Grimes, Pee Wee Crayton, and T-Bone Walker; the Rockabilly sound of Carl Perkins and Johnny Burnette; and the Louisiana swamp blues of Slim Harpo. They don’t just play songs by these artists, they have their own sound that consists of a melding together of their years of playing experience. Tickets are $20 and seating is limited so advance purchase or reservations are highly recommended. Children 12 and under admitted free with parent or guardian. Proceeds will go to The Gloria Faye Dingus Music Alliance, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to providing music education and instruments for all those wishing to learn and enjoy music. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-smokin-polecats-live-at-drum-strum-tickets-47489451227?aff=efbneb
