With his wily and unforgettable original songs and his hipster, street-smart vocals, no one on the blues scene writes or sings like Rick Estrin. No one looks like him either, as Estrin is always dressed to the nines, sporting his trademark pencil-line mustache and pompadour haircut. DownBeat explains that, “Estrin sings and writes songs like the brightest wiseguy in all of bluesland and blows harmonica as if he learned at the knee of Little Walter.” Alongside Estrin is guitar wunderkind Chris “Kid” Andersen, keyboard wizard Lorenzo Farrell, and dynamic drummer Alex Pettersen serving up sharp and clever original blues and gritty roadhouse rock ‘n’ roll. Live, the band is simply unbeatable. They deliver a high-energy show capable of bringing any audience to its feet.
Rick Estrin & The Nightcats with special guest Lloyd Jones will be appearing at the Alberta Rose Theatre, 3000 NE Alberta Street, on Friday, September 7, at 8:00 pm. Minors OK when accompanied by a parent or guardian and tickets can be purchased at Ticketbiscuit.com in advance for $24.00, $29.00 at the door day of show.
