Internationally-renowned soul-bluesman Johnny Rawls is playing a two-night stand at Raymond’s in Anderson this weekend, Friday and Saturday (July 1 and 2). He’ll be backed up by locals Ron Adams on drums, Patrick Sullivan on bass and Derral Campbell on tenor sax.
Johnny Rawls is a major talent, headlining blues shows everywhere. He is a great singer and songwriter, but his guitar prowess can’t be forgotten. This is a rare opportunity to see a “real deal” blues guy up close, here at home.
Whole Hog will be cooking the barbecue, serving at 7 p.m., and the music starts at 9.
Meanwhile, Raymond just knocked a wall out and doubled the size of his club, moving the stage and dancing area into the new room, furthering his hard work establishing a blues and jazz club in Anderson.
