Root Shakers host DBS Jam

The Detroit Blues Society Monthly Meeting and Jam returns to Shelly Kelly’s in Fraser on Saturday, Feb. 8.  This week’s host band is the Root Shakers, featuring Jim Finch (guitar and vocals) and Al Rude (bass and vocals).
The evening will start at 8 p.m. with a set by the host band and will continue until 1 a.m. with a steady stream of jammers, undoubtedly including some of Detroit’s top musical talents. You never know who will show up, but the DBS Monthly Jam is always full of fun surprises.
Often,  musicians who headline their own groups get a rare chance to jam together, all for fun.
There’s no cover charge and you don’t have to be a DBS member to attend, but after you check it out you’ll probably want to join the group so you can keep in touch with all the blues happenings around town.
A basic membership is only $25 per year and includes the group’s monthly Blues Notes newsletter, which is full of calendar info, music reviews, and more.
Shelly Kelly’s is at 18339 14 Mile Road in Fraser.
