Memphis Rub Band
November 15, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Guitar Gary Drouin at Scott Matzke front this great blues band – you’ve seen them as openers for the Bradenton Blues Festival last year, see them again in our intimate venue! In 2016 Gary and Scott wanted to perform blues and rock ‘n roll, but with a bit of funk and R&B added to the mix. They named the band “Memphis Rub” because of what that city represents to them. Dan joined the band shortly after it formed.
The Memphis Rub Band performs at a variety of venues and festivals up and down the Suncoast, putting their spin on tunes by musicians such as Delbert McClinton, Tommy Castro, Ace Moreland, B.B. King, Buddy Guy, and others. The band also writes and performs its own original music.
In 2018 Memphis Rub released their first album, “Taste”, and several tracks from this album have been played on area radio stations WMNF and WSLR, including “Red Tide Blues”!
