Featuring The Painkillers from 6-7:30pm
The Painkillers Blues Band has been part of the Champaign-Urbana music scene since 2002. They play a variety of Blues genres including Traditional, Southern, and R&B, but they stay centered on the Chicago Blues traditions, paying frequent homage to Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Carey Bell, and Paul Butterfield. Not to let the audience become too complacent, they move easily from straight ahead bluesy jams to lighter shuffles, from soft ballads to rowdy swamp boogies, mixing it up with lots of fun along the way!
With two guitars, bass, drums, harmonica, and both male and female vocals, there is something for everybody to enjoy, and The Painkillers will keep your toes tappin’ and your fingers snappin’! This should be a very fun evening of Blues in the park at Allerton!
