July 19 presents Midnight Train Blues Band

The Midnight Train Blues Band performs with a fullness of spirit which touches people, bringing audiences to sing, dance and laugh a lot.  Each of the quartet has decades of experience, blending in a smooth and cool presentation.  The band has been performing around Puget Sound for two years now, hosting a monthly blues jam in Port Townsend since 2015. They take their main lead from the Chicago Blues bands of the 50’s and 60’s (such as Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf, Little Walter,) plus many more sources.  They specialize in danceable rhythms and fun tunes. It’s not all blues but it’s all fun!
