The Boa Constrictors

Sunday, July 1 @ 7pm
Rackham Stage

This is Detroit blues with a rockabilly twist. From another place and time come The Boa Constrictors, old school blues musicians who know how to build a tight set. A favorite at blues festivals in Michigan and Canada, they call their Detroit blues “very greasy, grimy, and lowdown”—a sound that arrived from the Delta Blues regions with the northern migration for factory jobs during Detroit’s industrial revolution. With a recipe that comes from the legendary harmonica bands of Little Walter, Jerry Portnoy, Junior Wells, Paul Butterfield, and Sonny Boy Williamson (sr. and jr.), this is energetic and spontaneous blues that will get fans at TOP shuffling their feet.
