Reminder Jake’s Blues plays their first Erie show of 2012 tonight at 8 Great Tuesdays. The band promises a few new songs and will include Ron Yarosz on Hammond B-3 and harmonica.
Opening up will be the Hadden Sayers Band (and not Broke Boland, as I erroneously listed in Showcase; that’s Aug. 21). Get there early for Sayers; he’s a fantastic, clean-toned blues guitarist. You won’t want to miss him; he’s mighty impressive.

Erie’s M-80s precede Cody at 8:30 p.m.
