It was the return engagement of Chicago’s Sugar Blue Band on Saturday evening for the kickoff of the 7th Annual Spring Series of Street Music on Paris Avenue in Port Royal. And nobody went home disappointed.
Producer J.W. Rone said Sugar Blue, as he is known, is a multiple Emmy award winning musician who played harmonica for the Rolling Stones. It didn’t take long for the band’s high energy music to get people out of the seats and dancing in the street.
Rone said the next free concert will be on May 30th featuring jazz by the Terry Herron Band from Hilton Head. On June 13th, Port Royal will host the Conservation Theory bluegrass band from upstate South Carolina.
The Spring Series will close out on June 27 with E.G. Knight, another blues and jazz band. But don’t despair. Rone said the Summer Series will kick off sometime in August, though the exact date hasn’t been set yet and will be announced at a later date.
