Contributed by Brooke Hansen on 09/21/2012
The event begins at 7pm. Oasis Dance Club is located a short distance from Ithaca College (up the hill on 96b -- 1230 Danby Rd.). Advance tickets are $7 ($9 at the door) and can be purchased from Brooke Hansen, Anthropology Dept. (125 Gannett), Ithaca College.
Blues is a state of mind, lifestyle, frame of reference, ideology and indeed a state of being. This is where Butch Mudbone lives. A good bluesman must experience and understand the pain and suffering intrinsic to the human condition, then work with it and mold it into a song. This can be done either with writing original material or by interpreting in a personal way the works of former masters, such as Robert Johnson.
To be done right, blues isn't to be just sung. It's to be lived.
This is Butch Mudbone's world. The expression of his blues embraces all of the music's history which proceeded him. He is equally comfortable in solo performance or with his band, the Wolfpack, who can chum out a searing blues or modem rhythmic funk.
