Red Hot Blues ‘n BBQ Registration opens up Wednesday, April 16th at 7:30pm Eastern!!

Hey Everybody! The nation’s best Lindy Exchange — DCLX — kicks off in just under two weeks, and for the fifth year Capital Blues will be hosting the pre-party. We’re going to hit the breaks with local artist Gary Brown with Bushmaster Blues:

Gary Brown, lyricist, composer, guitar player, vocalist, and driving force for Bushmaster, is a warrior for equality and an ardent liberal. Born in Washington, DC, and growing up in the DC suburbs of Palmer Park, MD, along with the record collections of his parents, Brown was surrounded by the sounds of such local artists as Chuck Brown, Danny Gatton, Link Wray, and Bobby Parker. As a teen Brown learned guitar by jamming with other local talent and musicians. In 1992 Brown took the leap and formed his own band, Bushmaster. The band’s funky, guitar-centric, blues-rock music enlightens as well as entertains. You can hear the influence of such artists as Funkadelic, and Jimi Hendrix among others in their music. Bushmaster’s new CD, “Revolution Rhapsody aka: Uprising Music”, debuted at #41 on the Roots Music chart, at #21 on the Living Blues Magazine Radio Chart, and has received reviews, interviews, and radio airplay from Croatia, Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Canada, Australia, and The U.K., as well as across the United States. Gary was also named “Best Up and Coming Blues Rock Artist” for The Rock Over America Magazine Music Awards 2012.
