The Hi-Jivers

The Hi-Jivers


(8:00pm) The Hi-Jivers pay tribute to the Rock N' Roll and Rhythm & Blues of the '50s and '60s through their raw, wild originals and passionate covers. Their greatest influences include Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Magic Sam, Wynonie Harris, Big Mama Thornton, Johnny Guitar Watson, Little Walter, Chuck Berry and Ike Turner. Since moving to Nashville in 2014 (Dawna and Austin from Syracuse, NY, and Hank from Seattle, WA) The Hi-Jivers have played extensively in Nashville and beyond, performing at festivals such as Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender, The Nashville Boogie Vintage Weekender, and NYS Blues Festival. Fall 2017 brought a deal with indie label Wild Records (LA), and in April 2018 The Hi-Jivers released their first full length album, "Something's Gotta Shake". The band appeared on the cover of Blue Suede News Magazine's Spring 2018 issue, were recently featured in Vintage Rock Magazine, and appeared on Acme Radio Live in November, 2018.

Opening act - Playin Possum Band

(7:00pm) John Lee Hooker said in Boogie Chillen, ...” I heard Papa tell Mama let that boy boogie- woogie…it’s in him and it got to come out…” That is how the Playin Possum Blues Band got together, out of necessity. Their mission is to help keep traditional blues music alive, the music you would have hear coming out of the Juke Joints on those hot and humid Saturday nights in the south with a harmonica, a guitar and some rhythm backing it up from the likes of Robert Petway, Eddie Boyd, and Memphis Minnie Douglas. The songs of inspiration, heart break and love on the run. This music started in Mississippi, moved up through Memphis to Chicago where it was shipped overseas, repackaged and sent back to us as Rock n’ Roll. Join the Playin Possum Blues Band for some traditional blues, blue-eyed blues and originals direct from Suck Creek Tennessee, as they do their part to help keep the Blues alive, cause it’s in them and it’s got to come out. It’s a music history lesson you can dance to. Featuring Robin Baker guitar and vocals, T.C. Cox on drums, Eliot Richie, harmonica and Chad Simpson, bass.
