MVBS Presents Lucky Peterson with Shawn Kellerman Wednesday Dec. 19 PDF Print E-mail

The Mississippi Valley Blues Society presents, for your holiday pleasure, a “powerhouse” of a blues show featuring blues veteran and multi-instrumentalist Lucky Peterson, his wife Tamara on vocals and, tearing it up on guitar, the “Canadian Face-Melter” Shawn Kellerman. Showtime is 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 19th at Rascal’s, 1414 15th Street in Moline. Admission is a very reasonable $10 ($7 for MVBS members) for a show of this caliber.


Lucky Peterson, who last played here at our 1993 Blues Fest (the “Airport Fest”), was a child prodigy who played his first gig at age 3, recorded his first single—produced by the legendary Willie Dixon—at age 5 and went on to play The Ed Sullivan Show and The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson by the time he was age 6. He’s recorded for major labels such as Verve, Evidence and Alligator and, in 2010, his album You Can Always Turn Around won a Blues Music Award for Best Blues Album of 2010. He plays guitar, keyboards, bass, drums and trumpet—but for this show, we suspect Mr. Kellerman will be handling most of the guitar fireworks.

Shawn Kellerman has played the Quad City area several times, including our Blues Festival in 2010, and is known for his thrashing blues-rock style as well as his mastery of straight-ahead blues.

You won’t want to miss this show!  Have your nearest loved one give you an early Christmas present and get tickets for Lucky Peterson with Shawn Kellerman.

Steve Brundies, President

Sunday Dec. 16 at Martinis on the Rock


The Mississippi Valley Blues Society welcomes Scottie Miller and the Reuptake Inhibitors to Martinis on the Rock on Sunday, December 16.  The show will start at 6:00pm, and admission will be $7.00 for members and $10.00 for non-members.  Martinis on the Rock, an MVBS business member, is located at 4619 - 34th Street, Rock Island, right on the beautiful Rock River.


An accomplished and highly regarded keyboardist, Scottie offers up a diverse blend of blues, funk, soul and jazz, in addition to nailing down the New Orleans groove so tight this Minneapolis resident will have you wondering if the Mississippi River started flowing backwards.

Taking up piano at age six, Scottie Miller attended the prestigious Berklee School of Music, where, although he could only afford one year’s tuition, he managed to complete all four years of proficiency requirements.  From there he went on to play with fellow Minnesotan Big John Dickerson and Blue Chamber, and later with Bo Diddley.

Currently, when not touring with his own band, he’s been backing Ruthie Foster for the past four years.  In addition to being a keyboardist and bandleader, he’s also a fantastic singer, songwriter, arranger and lyricist.  He’s released seven CDs, including the solo acoustic effort Between the Black and the White, which compares favorably to Charles Brown’s similarly classic album In a Grand Style.

The Events Committee has been trying to snag these guys for a couple of years, and we’re fortunate to get them on this date, shortly after Scottie returns from a tour of Australia and a show in New York with Ruthie Foster.
