Hear this Week – Live Music in St. Louis January 30 – February 5
Live Music in St. Louis
Our town has recently been named 22nd out of 100 on a list of “most active cities,” so let’s actively get out and hear some good live music! Here are just a few Bands of Note:
Monday, January 30 – At B.B.’s Jazz, Blues, and Soups, it’s soul they are serving tonight. “A Night of Soul Searching” features the music of Tiffany Elle, blues sensation Marquise Knox, and the great Coco Rochelle Walker, among half a dozen other great acts. 8, $10.
Thursday, February 2 – The Blues City Deli isn’t just a great place to get a hearty po’ boy, it’s a cool place to hear live music on Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons. Tonight, acoustic artist and local favorite Tom Hall performs 6-8, no cover.
Friday, February 3 – Tim Rushlow & His Big Band are here to kick it out old school. Ruslow is a CMA Award winner, ACM award winner, and three-time Grammy nominee. You might know him as a country singer, but he’ll be at the Sheldon with his 18-piece band to provide a retro 1960s-style Las Vegas supper club experience (supper not included). 8, $30-$39.
Saturday, February 4 – R&B/Blues/Funk-masters Boogiefoot play at Evangelines in the Central West End. They promise “all musical appetites will be satisfied” which is appropriate because Evangeline’s kitchen does the same with the regular appetites. 7, no cover.
Sunday, February 5 – Get to Hammerstone’s to catch a smokin’ hot blues jam session hosted by and featuring the sextet VooDoo Blues. 4-8, no cover.
What the Locals Know: Every Wednesday at Grand Center the Kranzbergart’s Foundation presents a Jazz Crawl featuring great local musicians. This is a family-friendly event open to jazz lovers of all ages. It typically starts with the Jazz Happy Hour at the Magnolia Café at 5, and goes until 11. Free.
Music Note of Note: The St. Louis Classical Guitar Society has roots going back to 1963, and is the second oldest guitar society in the country. The group is dedicated to promoting and fostering an appreciation of music for classical guitar. In addition to hosting and sponsoring touring musicians, they also support and promote educational workshops and frequently donate instruments and set up lesson programs in city schools.
