The live music scene in the Wood River Valley features some of its very own talent almost every evening of the week. Start off the weekend on Thursday, Feb. 18, with the free Cox Communications Winter Concert Series in Ketchum's Town Plaza from 4-6 p.m. with Piers Lamb. LeRoy's will be open for concessions throughout the show.
Lamb's rocking guitar playing is soulful and fun, and if you miss him on Thursday, he plays another show as the featured guest of Captain Dano and The Nobodies on Friday, Feb. 19, at the Roosevelt Grille and Tavern at 10 p.m.
Taking over the Sun Valley Boiler Room for the weekend will be a dynamic group of musicians including Adam Levy, Bill Sims, Jr. and Paul Tillotson on Friday, Feb. 19, and Saturday, Feb. 20, at 9 p.m. This assemblage of talent is one-of-a-kind.
"This is live from New York City with blues master Bills Sims, Jr. and soulful songwriter Adam Levy," Tillotson said. "Adam has a standing gig at Banjo Jim's in New York City on Ninth and Avenue C and Bill Sims plays regularly at the 55 Bar in Christopher Street in the city."
Levy has his own band, Adam Levy and The Mint Imperials, which includes band members Tony Mason and Andy Hess, who will be joining Tillotson and Sims. Hess has played bass for Government Mule and John Scofield.
Tillotson will play Hammond organ and Sims will be on guitar. The band will play Levy's original songs and lots of blues. Expect a polished and tight performance and get ready to dance. Levy, Sims and Tillotson are a whole lot of talent at once and will put on a show to remember. Don't miss out.
Other live music around town will take place at the Silver Dollar in Bellevue with Jeremiah James on Friday, Feb. 19, at 9 p.m. The valley's own Cosmic Beans will spin into orbit at Whiskey Jacques' on Friday, Feb. 19, at 10 p.m.
