FREE! - MVBS presents 2 bands, Blues Rock-It & Shawn Pittman

The Mississippi Valley Blues Society wants to show its appreciation to all the blues fans in the Quad Cities who have come to the Mississippi Valley Blues Festival and our other shows throughout the year. We're doing that by giving the QC blues fans a free show at the Moline Viking Club, 1450 41st Street, Moline, Illinois. The show will feature two terrific bands who will start playing at 6:00 p.m., Saturday evening, May 11.

The fun will start with Blues Rock-It. This is a local band that has been growing its fan base for the last few years. Front man Boogs Malone on vocals and guitar is helped by none other than the legendary "Detroit" Larry Davison on harmonica. Local blues aficionados will also recognize and appreciate Jim VanHyfte on Drums, Ian Farmer on bass and Josh Green on keyboards and guitar.

Shawn Pittman will play 7:30 'til 10. Shawn has been playing guitar since he was 14 and has been getting better ever since then. He was heavily influenced by Lightnin' Hopkins and Muddy Waters and while he lived in Dallas he learned from Brian 'Hashbrown' Calway, Sam Myers, Mike Morgan, Jim Suhler, Tutu Jones and many others. He was playing with Susan Tedeschi in 1999 when she appeared on the Conan O'Brian Show. He's recorded twelve albums in his career, but we'll get to hear him live on this super Saturday night.
