Come on out for an acoustic blues showcase featuring three of the region’s most beloved talents!
Cape Ann’s Jon Butcher is one of a select handful of influential recording artists comprising the legendary Boston music scene. Numerous MTV videos and hit songs comprise the underpinnings of a recording and touring career that continues today. A handful of critically acclaimed CD’s, Positively The Blues, Barefoot Servants, Electric Factory, 2 Roads East and 360º mark Jon’s enduring love affair with the very fabric of American music. Butcher’s signature sound and particularly his guitar work represent a skillful mix of Americana – rock, r&b, jazz and folk, all of it focused through a prism built from the blues.
While growing up in Detroit, Montgomery learned first-hand from the masters–James Cotton, John Lee Hooker, and Jr. Wells–at the legendary “Chessmate.” Over the years he’s carried on the tradition, and continues to be a vital presence in Blues as one of the most dynamic performers on the scene. Peter Wolf calls him, “The John Mayall of New England.”

World renowned guitarist Gary Hoey began his career in the hard rock scene of the 90s, but has come full circle back to his first love, and what flows through the veins of every rocker- The Blues. Deja Blues marked the beginning or a return to his roots three years ago, and became the road he wanted to continue traveling on. His 2018 album Dust & Bones continues with the blues rock tradition and is lauded by the likes of Joe Satriani.
