Rousing, down-home, feel-good blues musician Elvin Bishop and his Big Fun Trio will be performing at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. Since he released his last album, 2014’s Grammy-nominated “Can’t Even Do Wrong Right”, Elvin was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, and soon after, into the Blues Hall Of Fame. He won the Living Blues Award for Best Blues Album Of 2014 and three 2014 Blues Music Awards: Album of the Year, Song of the Year (for the title track), and The Elvin Bishop Band took the award for Band of the Year.
Now, Elvin, along with his friends, guitarist/pianist Bob Welsh and percussionist/vocalist Willy Jordan, launches The Big Fun Trio. His new album, “Elvin Bishop’s Big Fun Trio”, is among his very best musical ideas ever. The music is rootsy, spirited and soulful, performed by serious musicians hell-bent on having a good time. “Elvin Bishop’s Big Fun Trio” features Bishop’s down-home delivery, deep blues picking and slide guitar, playfully meshing with Welsh’s piano and guitar licks and Jordan’s soul singing and propulsive cajón playing. The album’s laidback, front-porch vibe mixes four rollicking Bishop originals with three co-writes and five raucous, well-chosen covers.
With Elvin Bishop’s Big Fun Trio, Bishop confidently debuts his new, yet satisfyingly familiar, sound, ready to share the group’s happy-go-lucky vibe with listeners near and far. The trio’s instrumental, vocal and songwriting talents guarantee a boisterous good time.
Doors 7:00pm / Show 8:00pm
