WEEKEND ROUNDUP: Al Gold’s Howling Tribute, Marafanyi, Mike Griot presents KIWI & more!

This was another jam packed weekend with fun events from our favorite locals! It was all about live music in the Valley Arts District this weekend.

It kicked off with Al Gold presents a Howlin’ Wolf tribute featuring Dean Shot, Steve Guyler, Gary Wright, Big Mike Devita and the Solid Senders. Friday night, the HCK blues crowd came to enjoy blues favorites like “Smokestack Lightnin’“, “Back Door Man“, “Killing Floor” and “Spoonful“.

The lovely ladies of Marafanyi hosted their monthly Drum Dance & Song Workshop at the Firehouse Gallery with a good turn out and participation.

Al Gold hosts his monthly blues jam Sunday afternoon. And this week it was all about girl power. I noticed there were more female singers and musicians. Women brought the charisma, power packed voice and an overall good time.
