Johnny Ray Light of Planet Full Of Blues said, "When our band performed in Serbia a few years ago, our hosts took us on a long, crazy bus ride through Belgrade to the Vox Club, a well-known juke joint supported by several famous blues artists. You had to push a buzzer on the fence to get in. Once you got inside you couldn’t move. The place was tiny and crammed to the walls with locals there to see "Rawhide," a popular Belgrade blues band. Yes, "Rawhide" – in Serbia! It was a real thrill when we were asked to get up and play a few tunes in a real deal no-nonsense juke joint. Since then, we have wanted a chance to re-create that kind of experience here; even for just one night. The blue moon was shining on us when circumstances put us in touch with Gary Ward of Olivia’s. Gary immediately threw open the doors and said, "Let’s do it!" Now’s the chance for all our friends to put on their dancing shoes, enjoy some rockin’ blues, and experience the old time juke joint vibe for just one night."

Advance tickets are $15 online at www.planetfullofblues.com , at Kelsick Market on Main Street in Gloucester, and $20 on the day of the show and at the door.
