Summer Concert Series: Blues Night with Mulebone & Matt Mirabile Band
July 31 @ 7:00 pm
Mulebone is the Brooklyn-based blues musical duo of Hugh Pool on guitar, boot board, vocals, and harmonica, and John Ragusa on any number of flutes, tin whistles, jaw harp, and Conch shells. This is a predictably unpredictable group, delightful, unusual, and thoroughly enjoyable.
Some of the best blues you’re likely to hear this side of 1925. Hugh and John don’t just rehash classics from the blues greats, they recreate them as their own, and write originals that fit in seamlessly with that repertoire. The real deal. – JEFF RASPE, Music Wizard WBJB-FM; 90.5
From sweet and soulful to full on jam Matt Mirabile has it covered. Deeply rooted in Blues, Soul, R&B, and Funk, he began performing at age twelve and quickly went from a being a young novelty player to being a serious threat on the guitar. With nearly two decades of professional playing experience Mirabile’s musical journey has brought him to many parts of the US and even Europe. He has shared the stage with blues greats such as, Buddy Guy, James Cotton, Lurrie Bell and Kenny Neal. Mirabile plays with a tone and feeling well beyond his years and keeps his audience wanting more.
