Bluesdays: The Blues Monsters
July 13, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The Blues Monsters are celebrating its 30th year and will open Bluesdays in The Village at Squaw Valley for the 11th straight time.
“It’s a great honor because again we are the only local band on the bill,” guitarist Chuck Dunn said.
The first Bluesdays show in 23 months figures to be a rousing affair and several local players are expected to step onstage, including the Groove Monsters horn section and singers Kandy Xander, Matt Reardon and Kendal Naughton.
Dunn is the anti-Johnny Cash, dressing all in white. Renowned Southern California artist Johnny Martinez has pinstriped Dunn’s Telecaster pick guards to match Dunn’s loafer boots.
“We like to dress up for this gig,” Dunn said.
Grab & Go Food Offerings this year will include tacos, Bao buns, pizza, pulled pork sandwiches and Bratwursts.
“We are thrilled to offer this free and amazing blues series once again and look forward to welcoming everyone back in the Village this summer,” Caroline Ross of the Squaw Valley Neighborhood Company said. “We have a robust calendar of weekly and signature events, with something for everyone.”
