Daddy Mack Blues Band

Please note: This event has already occurred.
As the house band at Memphis’ Center for Southern Folklore for almost 15 years, Mack Orr and the Daddy Mack Blues Band know the blues inside and out: Irresistible boogie grooves, raspy vocals, razor-sharp guitar solos, just the right amount of swing. The group also has a sense of humor; the album “Slow Ride” featured “Whole Lotta Love” and other classic rock standards reimagined as soulful blues shuffles. The Daddy Mack Blues Band is visiting Silver Spring’s American Legion Hall this week for the D.C. Blues Society’s Black History Month celebration, which doubles as a fundraiser for the free annual summer blues festival at Carter Barron Amphitheatre.
