Those of us that listen to music have a tendency  to draw lines. We like to take something that can't be fenced in and try to put a fence around it. Trust me, you have done it. We've all asked "is this really country?" or "isn't that guy a rock and roller?" Trying to put music inside a box is about the same as trying to contain the sunshine with a Ziploc bag. You can try but you won't succeed.

Friday night at Jazz Alley inside The District on Johnston Street musical lines will be crossed, blurred, and probably erased. Jeremy Benoit, J.B. Saax, and the Band will take Smooth Jazz to the blue side. It's a special tribute to the blue done as only Jeremy and his incredible cast of characters can do.

Jazz music and Blues music are two uniquely American styles of music. Both genres were Baptized in the muddy waters along the Mississippi River. Jazz was born in New Orleans, the Blues were born in the Mississippi Delta and exploded on the music scene out of Memphis and while both styles can be distinctive the way they blend together is truly where the magic happens.

Friday night's Jazz Alley "Touch of the Blues" set will feature a guest performance from noted Acadiana Bluesman Major Handy. The things that Major Handy can do with a guitar and a lyric will send shivers up and down your spine. You will feel the music so deeply you'll want to stand up just to make sure you haven't come undone.

General admission tickets, VIP tickets, and VIP reserved tables for Friday Night's Jazz Alley " Touch of the Blues" set are still available. Janet Ann's catering will provide delicious hor d' evours beginning at 7pm and the music will start at 8pm. Jazz Alley is a smoke free joint.
