Winter Blues Festival 2016 at The PIX Theatre in downtown Lapeer featuring Eric Noden & Joe Filisko, Reverend Robert Jones & Matt Watroba and The Jimmy Burns Band.

The second annual Winter Blues Festival kicks off on Friday, February 5, 2016 at 7:30 pm with Eric Noden and Joe Filisko. The best way to describe Eric and Joe’s music is this quote from Mickey Raphael –harmonica player for Willie Nelson. “Eric and Joe are possessed by the spirits of Howlin Wolf, Sonny Terry, Robert Johnson, Johnny Woods, Sonny Boy Williamson, Gwen Foster and transported back to the 1920’s Delta.. “ Joe and Eric’s high energy performances continue to captivate audiences all over the world.

Saturday February 6, 2016 at 2:30 pm, Detroit’s own Reverend Robert Jones & Matt Watroba bring their powerful message of love, friendship, tolerance: where we have been, where we are, and hopefully where we can go. It is a walk through the roots and history of American music that not only educates, but entertains. Matt and Robert together form a synergy that is hard to describe.

Saturday night February 6 Singer, guitarist and songwriter, Jimmy Burns Band takes the stage. Jimmy is a contemporary bluesman who combines his Delta roots with R&B and soul to come up with a sound uniquely his own.
Jimmy Burns is a hard-edged, soulful mainstay on today’s Chicago blues scene and it is this very authenticity that has made him a hit with audiences far and wide. The fact that Burns is such a Chicago stalwart, however, means he rarely tours so it will be a special treat when he plays The PIX.
