MAY 11, 2019: “THE NORTHEAST BLUES GUITAR SUMMIT” RETURNS!!

Black-Eyed Sally’s is very excited to announce the return of the “NORTHEAST BLUES GUITAR SUMMIT” showcasing a variety of four world class, touring Electric Blues Guitarists.

This Blues Guitar Blowout will feature FOUR OUTSTANDING BLUES GUITARISTS, PAUL SIZE, DEAN SHOT, RICKY KING RUSSELL and Young Hotshot RYAN NEWMAN!

First up is the above mentioned, incredible Blues Guitarist “RICKY KING RUSSELL”! Ricky has a strong Guitar pedigree, serving currently as the guitarist for legendary Blues Harp Master Legend Jerry Portnoy, most recently Mud Morganfield (Son Of Muddy Waters!), and his own killer band “The Ricky King Russell Band”, which is arguably the Hottest, Hardest-working Blues Band in the Northeast! .

Ricky is one of Blues most seasoned performers and one of a handful of today’s Cream of The Crop Blues Guitar Slingers! Taking his cue from Blues masters, Ricky plays with passion and style. His 4 CD’s are radio favorites and featured on Dan Akroyd’s House of Blues Radio. Described as "Volcanic" by the Boston Globe, Ricky always delivers from the heart. Ricky has appeared with many well known Greats like John Lee Hooker, Steve Miller , Mighty Sam McClain, Ronnie Earl, Jerry Portnoy, Duke Robillard, Kim Wilson, Tommy Shannon and Chris Layton (Double Trouble), Roomful of Blues, James Montgomery, Sugar Ray Norcia, Debbie Davies and many others. He was a featured artist at the original House of Blues in Cambridge, MA and Harvard University has bestowed upon him an honorary "Doctorate of the Blues".

Next up is World Class Blues Guitar Phenom PAUL “The Kid” SIZE!!! Fans will know Paul as Guitarist for the late great, Lester Butler & The Red Devils, an LA based BluesRock band from 1988-1994 which toured throughout the US and Europe. The band released a couple of legendary “live” albums and also collaborated with Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger and also Johnny Cash. In 2017 the band toured and recorded “Return of The Red Devils” in the Netherlands to rave reviews! Paul is a Must See and one of today’s truly great Blues Guitar legends!

Next, you’ll witness an entertaining set of Killer Guitar Wizardry by New Jersey’s Great Blues Guitarist & Vocalist, “DEAN SHOT”. For many years Dean has been one of the East Coast’s Premier Blues Artists.

Dean’s a real crowd pleaser featuring heavily influenced doses of Alberty King, Louis Prima, Tiny Grimes, Howlin Wolf, Frank Sinatra, Chuck Berry and on and on. Dean often injects humor into his shows and is a fine entertainer as well as a consummate Guitarist and Vocalist who’s thrilled audiences at major Blues Festivals in Europe and The U.S.

Early on, Dean spent 6 yrs playing along the late great Hubert Sumlin (Howlin Wolf’s Guitarist) and toured heavily with many others. Dean has also backed up a long list including Ronnie Earl, Big Jay McNeely, Big Jack Johnson, John Primer, Mark Hummel, Bob Margolin, Cecil Brooks and many more.

Icing on the cake…Attendees will be Blown Away by jaw dropping, Young Blues Guitar Champ “RYAN “CONTINENTAL KID” NEWMAN”. Ryan exploded onto the New England Blues and Blues-Rock scene at the age of 15 (he’s now 21).

Ryan’s band “Righteous Continental” just recorded their debut Album “Psychoactive” (available on CD Baby and Amazon) and came in second place last year at the Mohegan Sun Band Challenge” where upward of 60 or 70 bands competed!

Ryan is currently also a member “The Amplifires”, a popular, New England Authentic Blues Quartet featuring Harp Master Dave Robbins. Ryan also just finished recording an album with Bobby T’s Allstars featuring former Johnny Winter Band Alumi Bobby Torello and Scott Spray.
