Blues in the Loft: Dean Shot’s Howlin’ Wolf Tribute featuring Hat City Blues Winner Vin Mott
Get your groove on at our Sunday evening Jazz & Blues in the Loft concert series! Hear world-class musicians and vocalists from the region in the cabaret-style setting of the SOPAC Loft. Cash bar available.
Enjoy an evening of the music of the great Blues legend Chester Burnett aka The Howlin’ Wolf performed with great honor and respect by Dean Shot & The Solid Senders featuring Vin Mott.
The musician and critic Cub Koda noted, “no one could match Howlin’ Wolf for the singular ability to rock the house down to the foundation while simultaneously scaring its patrons out of its wits.” Several of his songs, including “Smokestack Lightnin'”, “Killing Floor” and “Spoonful”, have become Blues and Blues Rock standards. In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine ranked him number 51 on its list of the “100 Greatest Artists of All Time”.
This seven-piece band wowed audiences at the 2017 South Mountain International Blues Festival…here is your chance to catch them performing two full sets of great Howlin’ Wolf songs unlike you have ever heard them before! Dean Shot spent many years playing alongside the legendary Hubert Sumlin while learning the music from a man who played it alongside Wolf. Also appearing with Shot is 2017 Hat City-SOPAC Blues Challenge winner Vin Mott….this is guaranteed to be a night of music you won’t forget!
Blues in the Loft concerts are curated and hosted by Mike Griot.
