NEW ARTIST Blues Series: Lonn’e George
June 14, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Join us tonight at Maxie’s Juke Joint for a night of music by Lonn’e George. Lonn’e was born in McComb, and after leaving the Air Force (where he met and played with Duke Ellington), he moved to Los Angeles where he formed The Promotia Band, opening for James Brown. In 2003, Lonn’e returned to Mississippi and performs with his own band Lonn’e George and Flash and plays lead guitar for the Blue Monday Band in Jackson. He does not restrict himself to playing just Blues as he also plays jazz, and other forms of music. Upcoming artists in The MAX Blues Series include: Jamell Richardson, August 8; Eden Brent, October 11; and Alphonso Sanders, December 13. Food and beverages available for purchase. $20 Non-members | Free for Members.
