Some of the best blues in America today isn't coming out of Chicago or the Deep South -- it's coming from New York City's Times Square where the B.B. King Blues Club All-Stars featuring the Harlem Blues Project jam weekly at Lucille's with special guests. Several soulful and dynamic veteran vocalist-musicians make up the Harlem Blues Project: Jerry Dugger, Junior Mack and Barry Harrison. Singer and bassist Jerry Dugger is a member of the New York Blues Hall of Fame, who's shared the stage with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny Copeland, James Cotton and more. Guitarist Junior Mack has played with greats like the Allman Brothers Band, Derek Trucks, Robert Randolph, Dickey Betts and Honeyboy Edwards and drummer Barry Harrison, a long-time band member for Johnny Copeland and Shemekia Copeland, rounds out one of the hottest blues outfits ever assembled. They're joined by a rotating cast of the finest musicians in New York City and beyond. Learn More

THIS GROUP WAS FANTASTIC!!! I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY WERE SAYING IN THEIR LANGUAGE BUT THEY BROUGHT TEARS TO MY EYES...VERY MOVING, ENERGETIC AND ENGAGING!! I BOUGHT ONE OF THEIR DVDS.
I was surprised to see the tightly packed in tables for guest. I thought there would be standing room. I feel that the venue takes advantage by requiring a $10 per person charge for seating that you don't necessarily need..a snack of a glass of wine ($10) and wings ($13) to absorb the liquor can cost more than $25!! with tax and tip...$25!!!?? A full meal at BBQs just down the block doesn't cost that much!! I was happy to sit on couch style seat outside of restrm area...hello!!
Mention African song and most people think of South African practitioners of the vocal arts – Solomon Linda, Miriam Makeba and perhaps more than anyone else in recent memory, Ladysmith Black Mambazo. It is Ladysmith Black Mambazo who have come to represent the traditional culture of South Africa. They are regarded as South Africa’s cultural emissaries at home and around the world. In 1993, at Nelson Mandela’s request, Mambazo accompanied the future President, and then South African President F.W. de Klerk, to the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo, Norway. Mambazo sang again at President Mandela’s inauguration in May of 1994. They are a national treasure of the new South Africa in part because they embody the traditions suppressed in the old South Africa.
