Jarekus Singleton Returns to Richmond July 1st!

Jarekus Singleton - Refuse to Lose

We hope you’ll join us this week (6/25/16) on Time for the Blues because a great young talent Jarekus Singleton is returning to play in Richmond on Friday July 1st at The Broadberry and we're going feture an interview with him from early 2015! His is talent not to be missed!

What we're doing this week is giving you a chance to hear (or hear again) our interview with Jarekus Singleton from 2015 as we approach his third appearance in Richmond, this time Friday July 1st, 8 PM at The Broadberry along with two of our local fave groups, Anthony Rosano and the Conquerooos AND The Bush League! What a lineup for a hot Friday night!

So, for a bit of background, in 2014 Alligator Records released Jarekus Singleton's first CD for them, "Refuse to Lose" and we immediatly knew this was a songwriting, guitar-slinging and vocal triple threat entering the national blues scene! We featured many tracks from that release over a few shows and then we found out he was heading to Richmond in January 2015 and the wheels started to turn with our friends at Alligator. We had a great chat with him and featured it on the show just before that first appearance locally.

So, If you missed the shows we ran late in 2014 featuring tracks from Singleton’s "Refuse To Lose," or the original interview show, here’s your chance to catch up as we sample a few titles and talk with Jarekus about his life, music, and the support system that we all need.

So now, well into 2016, Jarekus Singleton is solidly on the road of a great career. His music is great, his voice his strong and he has an amazing work ethic...but it's the lyrics that really catch you--they certainly caught us!  Be sure to check him out when you have the opportunity to see him in a great venue (like The Broadberry) and we think you’ll leave as fans as well. (Check out the audio sample above!)

But that’s not the entire show this Saturday, we’ve got plenty of good old-school-style fun. Like Joe Bonamassa and Beth Hart teaming up for a couple of blistering tracks from their incredible 2-CD set "Live In Amsterdam."

We’ve also got a selection featuring James Cotton teaming up with Delbert McClinton from "Cotton Mouth Man." There’s also George Thorogood blasting through a Willie Dixon classic and more sides from Al Kooper's early group, Blues Project.

But back to our show this week--it's one you don’t want to miss, especially if missed it the first time around! Take that nap and get ready to spend the night with us! Great music, bad jokes, and a very interesting conversation that just may help you discover the prodigious talent of a young artist. Time for the Blues with John Porter and Henry Cook airs Saturdays at 11:00 p.m.
