Music achieves its full emotional effect only when performed live, just as great literature becomes comprehensible only when screamed aloud in a crowded subway train. Enjoy public performance with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to "Beach Chair Blues Night" at Jannus Live in St. Petersburg on Thursday, October 6 (a $23.60 value). Doors open at 7 p.m., and the concert goes until 11 p.m.
Three Florida-based acts will entertain crowds with a mix of R & B, Southern rock, and funk during "Beach Chair Blues Night," held in Jannus Live's well-appointed outdoor courtyard. Sitting in their own beach chairs, attendees can groove to the soulful sounds of the headliners, the Mike Kach Group, whose eponymous singer and keyboardist tickles ivories on piano, organ, and stray elephant. Local guitarist and vocalist Jimmy Griswold serves as a special guest for the evening, and Southern rock opening act The Standback Band will perform with a recruited roster of fellow Bay Area blues musicians.
