A `Hurricane’ is blowing into town Saturday and he’s got the blues

Roger “Hurricane” Wilson knows the business of blues.Folks who like their live blues served up hot and fresh from Georgia, with a dash of rock ‘n’ roll, won’t want to miss this Saturday night’s performance by Hurricane, at the Oasis Bar & Grill in West Glenwood Springs.Wilson has shared the stage with some of music’s greatest legends, including B.B. King, Leon Russel, Bernard Allison and Taj Mahal.Wilson’s third release, “The Business of the Blues!” is half electric, half acoustic, and full of blues. It’s an incredible effort by a truly physical guitarist who can slam a high-volume lick and pull down to a whisper in a heartbeat. Texas Blues Magazine describes his singing as “cutting edge vocals that perfectly express the message in the lyrics.”While the CD is bursting with blues, this act is best caught live. Hurricane got his nickname because of the quick movement of his hands when he plays guitar. He’s performed live for as many as 300 nights a year, performing original and cover songs in a style that captures his own unique features as well as the best of the great blues artists.Wear comfortable shoes because this is music to move to. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. for this smoke-free performance. You must be 21 or older. Admission is $14 at the door, or charge in advance by calling 945-6613.
