RCBS Presents Blues and Brews at The Camel - the finest in local blues bands.

Next up: Blues Flash. Friday, May 25, 5 PM, no cover charge.

It’s rare when a group is able to combine so many wide-ranging styles of music. Blues Flash draws from a number of musical backgrounds and styles, from traditional blues to jump-swing, roots-rock and R&B, with original tunes and a little funk thrown in for good measure.

John Howe, Mike Souder, Joe Mitchell and Bob Saydlowski are all seasoned stage veterans and know how to get a crowd up on their feet dancing in a hurry. When you catch Blues Flash live it’s hard to tell just who’s having more fun, the audience or the band. One thing’s for sure, it’s always a party when Blues Flash is in the house!





The River City Blues Society of Virginia is organized exclusively for educational, literary, artistic and charitable purposes. We are a non-profit, volunteer-based organization dedicated to the promotion, preservation, and perpetuation of the Blues as an original American art form.
