Best of the Blues: Denver's Best Blues Jam, w/Bad Brad Stivers

  • April 20, 2014 · 7:00 PM

Real blues starts at jams. For this Meetup let's get together on 420 at Ziggies for the Mile High Blues Society Jam! Westword magazine -- Denver's music and entertainment weekly -- named it Denver Best Blues Jam. It's been goin' on for 40 years at Ziggies, so they must be doing something right. It is a fun, social event. Yes, there will be dancing!

The host band will be led by Brad Stivers of Bad Brad & The Fat Cats. This will be a farewell jam for Brad and his brother, drummer Alec Stivers, as they are moving to Austin TX soon. Special guests are expected to drop in and join in the jam.

Jams are all about having fun, and this jam is the best. We will hear raw, inspired blues from talented locals,

The jam is free. Street parking is free. The event has been filling up early every Sunday, so please be there early. Bad Brad and the band will start playing at 7pm and you don't want to miss that.

Let's meet up a little before 7pm and sit in "The Pit," the area adjacent to the dance floor. I'll be playing blues harp in the host band, The Blues Allstars, and hangin' with you guys after that.

    That was fun. I enjoyed the jam with all of the players. Especially "Grizzell"?

      Vykky, that was Rob Grizzle. A really good player and a regular at the Sunday jam at Ziggies.

    It was a good night to see Brad before he goes off to bigger and better things in Austin. Thanks to all club members for supporting Brad over the last few years.

    Very cool to see Brad and the Fat Cats crew play last night. Was able to talk with him and buy his CD. Played it late last night, it was great. Lots of talent with him and other local players on the CD. Looking forward to his return after school.
