THANK YOU MR. POOBAH: A TRIBUTE TO THE PAUL BUTTERFIELD BLUES BAND 1965-66

June 19, 2015 @ 9:00 pm

Featuring the East West Blues Band + special guests
“I was born in Chicago – nineteen and forty-one…”  The racially mixed Paul Butterfield Blues Band blasted off from the Windy City with a wall of sound fueled by Butterfield’s inspired harmonica and lead guitarist Mike Bloom­field’s explosive lead guitar – at that moment, American rock and roll collided with the real South­side Chicago blues and there was no turning back. Along with original members Elvin Bishop on second guitar and Mark Naftalin on organ, they conquered the landmark 1965 Newport Folk Festival. It was there Bob Dylan borrowed Bloomfield and the Butterfield Band’s African-American rhythm section of Sam Lay on drums and bassist Jerome Arnold (both former Howlin’ Wolf band members) for his world-shaking electric debut that Sunday evening. The Butterfield Band converted the country-blues purists and turned on the Fillmore generation to the pleasures of Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter, Willie Dixon and Elmore James. With the release of their blues-drenched debut album in the fall of 1965, and its adventurous East-West follow-up in the summer of 66, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band kicked open a door that brought a defining new edge to rock and roll.
