The history of the blues comes to life in Yes Indeed!, a musical tribute from JazzReach and The Metta Quintet. From R&B and rock to hip-hop and jazz, blues music is at the root of it all, lending these genres their distinct American sound and powerful expression of experience. In this interactive evening of music, The Metta Quintet takes you on a journey back to the origins of the blues in the work songs, spirituals, hymns, field hollers and chants of the 19th-century American South. You'll never listen to popular music the same way again after experiencing Yes Indeed! at Orange County's Irvine Barclay Theatre.
