Event description

Description

Norman Davis, co-founder of Boise Blues Society way back in 1992 and present-day host of Juke Joint on Radio Boise KRBX, calls Jason Ricci the greatest living harmonica player. Pretty high praise by one who has known his share of blues harp players over the years! Norman was around back in mid-90s Boise when Jason got his start here as a blues artist, and now he's helping bring him back for this pair of shows that will surely be knockouts!

"among the very best in the world ... one of the most innovative and creative harp blowers around" ~Blues Blast Magazine

Jason Ricci & The Bad Kind (his latest band) will play a pair of shows at Playhouse Boise. Separate tickets posted here for each show. Doors at 6:30pm both nights, with shows getting started at 7:30. Tickets will be $20 at the door if still available. But best get yours in advance here and now. Co-sponsored by Radio Boise radioboise.org and Boise Blues Society boiseblues.org. Food and drink available. All ages welcome.

Jason Ricci is definitely one of the most popular harmonica players on the planet today. Listed in almost every top ten list of players on the internet today Jason Ricci is a polarizing force always in the spot light and on the tips of critics, artists and fans tongue’s everywhere.
