THE RETURN OF McKINLEY JAMES!
Friday May 03, 2019
@ Abilene Bar and Lounge
Doors 3:00pm • Music 9:30pm

Our pal Danny has our pal Mickey playing again!! DO NOT miss this show!

McKinley James is a 17 year old rock ‘n’ roll guitarist/singer from Rochester, NY, now living in the musical mecca that is Nashville. His father, drummer Jason Smay (Los Straitjackets, JD McPherson) helped raise McKinley in a very musical household. He started on the Hammond organ at 7 but discovered his passion for guitar at 10. His influences range from Link Wray to Freddie King and Otis Redding. He started performing in Rochester blues and jazz clubs at age 13 and has performed with Chris Duarte, The Nighthawks, Joe Beard, and JD McPherson. McKinley is also the face of the latest Eric Church album campaign, having starred in his music videos, and also appears on the album cover for Church’s latest record, “Mr. Misunderstood.” McKinley is very excited to be touring in support of his first EP, “Live in Nashville,” recorded in October, 2016 at the Family Wash. Joining McKinley James and Jason Smay for this special gig is keyboardist, Ray Jacildo (JD McPherson) .

You are NOT going to want to miss this night of blistering blues guitar!!!
Tickets: $5 advance, $8 day of show, available now at Abilene, Record Archive and online at https://abilene.showare.com

Son Revival Landscape 1

Geva Theatre Center World Premiere Rochester Story
Revival: The Resurrection of Son House
May 1, 2019 – June 2, 2019
Revival brings blues legend Son House back to life on the Geva stage. From his beginnings in rural Mississippi, through personal crises and his relatively obscure life in Rochester, to the stunning rebirth of his career in 1964. A celebration of the musical legacy of the man who inspired generations of blues artists from B.B. King, Eric Clapton, and Bonnie Raitt, to Susan Tedeschi, Joe Bonamassa, and Jack White.
Written and Directed by Keith Glover
Music by Son House, Billy Thompson and Keith Glover
Musical Direction by Billy Thompson
