Mele at the waterfront
That Texas guitar-slinger Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, whose musical verve ranges from stampeding swing to cold-steel blues to blistering rock 'n' roll, is the headliner for the "Rhythm & Blues Mele 2000," taking place 7 p.m. tomorrow at Kakaako Waterfront Park.
Brown is a double-Grammy winner and a member of the Blues Hall of Fame. Joining him will be Big Bill Morganfield (son of the legendary Muddy Waters) and his band, which features guitarist Bob Margolin, plus Jimmy Thackery and the Drivers. Opening will be local band Bluzilla.
Admission is $25; $22 in advance at Tower Records, Tower Video, Hungry Ear, Paradise City Music, Rainbow Books and Schofield Barracks.
Gates open at 5:30 p.m. Sponsored by Blue Rooster, Kona Brewing Companies and the Kakaako Improvement Association, the show is a fund-raiser for the Association and the Children's Discovery Center.
