Join us at for a performance by Georgie Bonds at the Red Hot & Blue Cherry Hill on Father’s Day, Sunday June 19 from 5 PM – 8:30 PM.
Slow- hickory smoked ribs and barbecue and live Blues music – what a treat!
It’s sure to be a night of “Blues for your soul, soul for your Blues”
“All I’ve wanted to be in my life is a cowboy and a singer.” – Georgie Bonds
Georgie got his first taste of delta blues when a friend loaned him a Robert Johnson tape. There was something about the music that grabbed a hold of him and wouldn’t let go. At that point he knew that the blues was what he needed. One night in the early 1990’s, he stepped onto the stage of an open mic blues jam at “The Barbary,” took a deep breath, and belted out “Stormy Monday,” the only blues song he knew. Fortunately, blues legend Sonny Rhodes, who was hosting that night, took a liking to Georgie and became his mentor. Sonny introduced Georgie to more musicians, and taught him how to be a performer, not just a singer. Georgie’s blues career was then well on it’s way.
