Grey skies at the beach might be the cause for the blues. But, in Old Town Temecula Hot Summer Nights are heating up with a pair of “Blues” bands, some classic rock and the “take-me-away” sounds of Duchicela.
Friday, July 16, features The Bill Magee Blues Band, L.A. Jones & the Blues Messenger, Duchicela, and the classic rock cover band Two of Us Plus 1.
L.A. Jones and The Blues Messengers represent a new breed from the old school of the blues; crossing spiritual and musical boundaries and pioneering a style that is all their own. The band blends popular jump swing of the great Texas and West Coast traditions with 1950’s Chicago Blues traditions. This energized blues band will play at the Old Town Plaza at the corner of Old Town Front and Moreno.
Bill Magee’s Blues Band has been voted best blues band in San Diego by the San Diego Music Association and the “Reader” magazine. Magee offers a New York/Chicago style of blues that is electrifying and reflects his passion for the blues. He has played with greats B.B King, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Otis Redding, John Lee Hooker and Bo Didley. Magee also spent several years on the road with the James Brown Revue. His band will play at the Baily’s Courtyard on Old Town Front Street from 6-9 p.m.
Duchicela, a popular Andes Pan Flute Band in Hawaii, will return to Old Town Temecula at Villa di’ Calabro’s patio on Main Street. Using handmade wooden flutes, drums and rain sticks, this unique band recreates popular tunes, jazz and rock, into a new age retreat from the world.
