This is an indoor concert with indoor and outdoor seating.
Reverend Billy C. Wirtz is a comic genius, gifted pianist and American musicologist who defies easy classification. Long a folk and blues festival favorite, Rev. Billy C. Wirtz wraps his humorous stories and songs into carefully orchestrated sets that feature his stellar piano playing. Playing with Billy will be drummer Walter Shufflesworth (he’s played with Lightnin’ Hopkins, Joe Turner, Musselwhite and Johnny and the Hurricanes) and Bill Singletary on bass.
Steve Arvey began his career playing the Chicago blues circuit during the 70’s. During that period he shared the stage with many of the legendary blues masters from the Windy City. Now living in Florida, Steve is a fixture at major festivals and nightclubs throughout the South, Europe and the Caribbean. He is also considered by many to be one of the top cigar box guitar players in the world today.
