Ronnie Earl & The Broad-casters

Thursday July 3rd at 8:00pm
 
"...unbridled passion in his playing creates a joyous, uplifting vibe.” -Jeff Johnson, Chicago Sun-Times
 
"I feel the respect and affection for him that a father feels for his son. He is one of the most serious blues guitarists you can find today.  He makes me proud."  ~ B.B. King
 
“When it’s time for spiritual rejuvenation, it’s time for a visit from Ronnie Earl, pastor of the church of tone.”  ~ Eric C. Shoaf, Vintage Guitar
 
 “Ronnie is considered by critics, fans, and musicians alike to be one of the greatest guitarists to ever grace this planet, and his music truly transcends genres and touches the soul. Be it jazz, blues, or standards, his dynamic approach to playing is respectful of his influences and at the same time transporting jazz and blues into the next millennium." ~ Tom Guerra, Vintage Guitar
 
Get ready for some pre-Fourth fireworks on Thursday, July 3rd!!  We’re elated to present the legendary blues guitarist Ronnie Earl, along with his band, The Broadcasters, as they kick off the long holiday weekend.  Inspired by Muddy Waters, T-Bone Walker, B.B. King, Freddie King, Otis Rush, Big Walter Horton and The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Ronnie developed his six-string skills and an intensity that hasn’t cooled in more than 35 years of playing. Earl, who has been hailed by musicians and critics alike as one of the premier blues guitarists of his genre, has played with such greats as Carlos Santana, Eric Clapton, Earl King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and The Allman Brothers as well as several of the musicians that inspired him early on. From 1979 to 1988, Earl played with a number of groups including Roomful of Blues before forming his own band, The Broadcasters, named after the first Fender Telecaster guitar called the Broadcaster which was distributed in 1950. In 2008 the Broadcasters celebrated twenty years as a band. The current Broadcasters are: Dave Limina on the Hammond B3 and piano, Lorne Entress on drums, and Jim Mouradian on bass. They have played together for eleven years and are currently enjoying playing for inspired audiences at a series of sold out shows.
