Charlie Jacobson plays the blues for Tuesday night crowd

Hey, hey the blues is all right , even when played solo.

 Red Deer’s Charlie Jacobson had a surprisingly good turnout on Tuesday, Oct. 23, for a solo set of electric blues music at the Slice.
 I arrived in the middle of a couple subdued Stevie Ray Vaughan covers including “Cold Shot.”

 he put on quite a show on his own, playing and writing and accompanying himself by pounding our the rhythm on a couple of old suitcases. He sat on the biggest one for a solid version of John lee Hooker‘s “Boom, Boom, Boom.”

He played some originals and a couple other blues classics like “Stepping Stone,” played a couple more rockabilly flavoured numbers, then added a touch of funk and even some jazz music.
 One of many highlights was a cover of Albert King’s “The Hunter.”
