Neighborhood Session with the Ruth Davies Blues Band

Tuesday, April 18, 7pm at The Back Room, Berkeley

Chase your blues away with these powerful women of the blues:

Ruth Davies on bass, Pat Wilder doing vocals and guitar, Tammy Hall on piano, and Daria Johnson, drums and vocals.

Following our usual format, the session begins with a set by the pro musicians. Our masterclass participants will be Minor F from Oakland School of the Arts, who are Camille Collins on tenor sax, Hannah Mayer on piano, Arielle Zakim on bass, and Jayla Hernandez on drums.

By popular demand, we have expanded the jam session portion of the evening when members of the audience are invited to take the stage. All instruments and vocalists—amateur to pro—are welcome at every session. Signup sheets will be available at the door. Although vocalists must provide charts in the desired key for the accompanying musicians, both instrumentalists and vocalists need to have their material under their belts—no charts or sheet music allowed!

The Back Room is four blocks from Downtown Berkeley BART. BYO if you’re over 21. And don’t forget to bring your instrument.

1984 Bonita Avenue, Berkeley
$10 general admission. CJC-degree-students: free with ID.
