Modesto, CA 95354
Description : Featuring Chris Cain, Big Earl and The Cryin’ Shame and Gravel & Grace

Chris Cain is a San Jose native whose guitar playing has made him known world-wide. His style has been described as blues with a tinge of jazz. Whatever you call it, he’s going to make you want to dance. Once a regular on the Modesto scene, we are happy to bring him back.

Big Earl and the Cryin’ Shame has been filling dance floor since 2007. The foundation of 50’s Chicago blues with infectious funk rhythms and the unforgettable voice of Big Earl Matthews keep this group packing the house and the dance floor.

Gravel and Grace features 16 year-old singing sensation Ava Grace and Big Earl Matthews. The band plays classic blues, R&B and soul all with the magic that happens when veteran musicians join with a young musical dynamo.

Doors open at 7; show at 8 p.m.
GA Tickets: $20 (A $2 preservation fee applies to every ticket)
