Event DescriptionLoads of fun when David Vest and his band (Damian Graham, Tom Bowler, Ryan Tandy and Brooke Maxwell) look at romance, finance and mischance through a blues lens.
For at least a hundred years, blues and R&B artists have had lots of witty things to say about fiscal matters, such as Barrett Strong's "Money (That's What I Want)", which was the very first Motown hit, before being covered by The Beatles. Ray Charles, of course, was "Busted" when he ran out of "Greenbacks," and Mose Allison wrote the "Gettin' Paid Waltz" after getting the runaround from a club owner. As Chuck Berry said, "You can buy it, go on 'n' try it, you can pay me next week." And as many a musician has declared, "The dollar makes me holler."
