Three good ways to bring in 2017 on a high note: The Highway 99 Blues Club in Seattle is having its 11th Annual Hayride to Hell New Years Eve Bash, headlined by The 44s, a rising roots-rock band from LA. The evening will begin with some delta country blues with harpist Calvin Conway and guitarist Brett “Bad Blues” Benton. For reservations, call 206-382-2171.
The Scotch & Vine in Kent has Brian Lee & the Orbiters for its New Year’s Eve Blues Gala 2016. The Orbiters are three-time winners of the WBS “Best Traditional Blues Band” (2013-2015). Reservations: 253-236-5225.
Ayron Jones & The Way will be at the Rhythm & Rye in Olympia that night. AJ and his band play a hard rock/blues style inspired by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Nirvana. If you haven’t seen them before, this will be a great opportunity. Reservations: 360-972-2278.
