BluesSwing explores the blues and popular song roots of American music, from W.C. Handy to B.B. King, from Thomas "Fats" Waller to Nat "King" Cole--and adds the occasional Beatles or Elvis number to spice things up. The solid rhythmic foundation of bass (Carl Yaffey), drums (Kevin Truman), and banjo (Jackie LaMuth) allows our tasteful lead guitar (John Sherman) and distinctive vocals (Bill Kerwin) to send this classic mix of tunes straight to your hearts.  Bill Cohen: "Jazzy, bluesy, swingy. What a combination! See this new band when you get a chance.  It includes a great mix of local musicians."  Free – donations to SPAN Ohio (Single Payer Action Network) accepted.  SPAN Ohio is working to pass legislation to provide health care for all Ohioans.  Health Care is a human right!  More information:  Free refreshments.  Location:  First Unitarian Church, 93 W.
