2 BLU & the Lucky Stiffs

2BLU and The Lucky Stiffs promote a sensational blend of blues, rock, funk, and gospel. For years, 2 BLU has been putting their original twists on Delta Blues when performing in an unplugged acoustic duo or trio, or bringing the funk in their electrified four- or five-piece configuration, 2BLU And The Lucky Stiffs create their own unique brew to rock your bones and soothe your soul.

From: 2blumusic

"The genesis of the band was the acoustic duo of Bruce Andrews and George Dudley, who adopted the name “2BLU”. With the addition of drums, bass, and percussion, the boys become “2BLU and The Lucky Stiffs”.

"Why the name? The guys are “Lucky” to share a mix of music, faith, and life experience with anyone who will listen. On top of that, they're a bunch of “Stiffs,” old, old dudes who can’t quit playing and wouldn't dream of quitting in the first place.
2BLU's lyrical approach frequently reflects the band's Christian faith, usually in a non-traditional format, mixing secular and Faith themes in their tunes; exactly as life mixes the everyday grind with the divine. This combination represents the roots of the Blues.
Diverse instrumentation includes custom hand-built lap steel guitars, bass guitars and hand percussion by bassist Jack Dudley of Don’t Fret Instruments."

2 Blu & the Lucky Stiffs appear regularly all across the deep south. Please check out their web sight for upcoming shows. 2blumusic.com

House Concerts

In a simpler time, during the 1930’s and 1940’s, House Concerts were very popular but began to fade as more Theaters and Music Venues came into existence.

However, in the last ten years, with the desire for hearing quality music that may not be on the radio, House Concerts are experiencing a re-birth!

House concerts can be as varied as the people that open their homes to have them.
Becka’s Place is set up so that you have the choice of bringing an appetizer to share an hour before show time and mix with other music lovers OR you may come just for the concert.
Becka’s Place is not a “museum quiet” atmosphere but neither is it a “beer joint”.
Imagine somewhere in-between!

Each artist will be different. The genre of tunes you will hear will be singer/songwriters of Roots, Blues, and Americana music.

House Concerts vary in how each place differentiates.

A little about Becka's Mission:

My purpose is to have friends and guests that love music gather at my home for fun, food and a great evening or afternoon of entertainment. I am a simply someone that loves music and prefers to choose the atmosphere of where I listen to good, quality music. I am not an expert: I do not make recommendations; I do not write reviews; I only know what I like. In the area where I live, I have found only a handful of places that qualify for my standards and because I have many musician friends, decided to follow the concept of an era gone by and start my own series.

I want to guarantee you a concert that will be up close and personal so that when you hear a song, you’ll feel free to ask the artist, “why did you write that?” or any other question that pops up. You can chat/visit with the artist and get to know them personally.
