Blues will rock summer concert

The Summer Music in Jamestown concert series continues at East Ferry's Veterans Memorial Square this Sunday, July 23, with an evening of cool R&B by the three-piece bluesrock band, Black and White.

One of Rhode Island's busiest working bands, Black and White has headlined venues throughout the East Coast and recently had the honor of performing at the prestigious Boston Blues Festival.

Starting out as a quartet in 1990, the band became a trio in 1995 and began to hit its stride, focusing on a concentrated, punchy and swinging blues style. Over the years, they have shared billing with such legendary and eclectic acts as Bo Diddley, Southside Johnny, G.E. Smith, Junior Wells, Buckwheat Zydeco, Rick Derringer, .38 Special, Duke Robillard, and Dr. Hook.

Black and White features Don DiMuccio on drums, Jason James on guitar, and Kevin Martin on bass.

The music begins at 6:30 p.m. Those attending should bring blankets or chairs. Admission is free. The concert is sponsored by R&R Gallery and the Jamestown Parks and Recreation Department. In case of rain, the show will go on at the Community Center.
