Blue Café Presents Bill Barnes
Time & Location
About the Event
Although jazz has always been his passion, Bill actually began his professional career in the late sixties as a backup musician for touring R&B recording acts. His first national tour was with Atco Records star Arthur Conley (“Sweet Soul Music”) on a series of concert dates to promote the release of Conley’s second hit single, “Funky Street.”
Since then he has played with recording artists such as Eddy Floyd, Spider Turner, Sam the Sham, Rufus Thomas, The Drifters, The Coasters, Tommy Roe, The Marvelettes, Len Barry, Little Eva, Gabrielle Goodman, and many others.
With three CD’s to his credit, Bill is also an accomplished music journalist and essayist. Bill currently resides in Mid Coast Maine and performs throughout New England.
Don’t miss your chance to see and hear these talented musicians up-close and personal! Admission to the Blue Café is always free; donations welcome, and bar by 40 Paper.
