| July 17, 2012

91.3 KXCI Community Radio returns to its roots with a “House Rockin'” party at historic El Casino Ballroom on Friday, August 10th at 8pm. KXCI’s popular concert series in the 1980’s helped get the station on the air beginning with the very first “Blues Review” benefit to raise scratch to buy the initial broadcast equipment.

On Friday, August 10th, KXCI pays tribute to this rich heritage with a “House Rockin’ Blues Review.” Confirmed artists include: Tom Walbank and Stefan George teaming up with a rocking rhythm section. Three members of Kings of Pleasure swing into blues with The Mike Hebert Band featuring vocalist Katherine Byrnes and saxophonist Jeff Grubic. (Mike Hebert first performed at El Casino with Billy Bacon and the Forbidden Pigs.) The evening culminates with The Bad News Blues Band backing up Arizona Blues Hall of Fame members such as Hans Olson, Tony Uribe, Danny Krieger, Mike Blommer, Hurricane Carla, Steve Grams, Alex Flores, John Strasser, and Heather Hardy. Expect some smoking blues with tasty licks from an All Star line up.

The show starts at 8pm with doors at 7pm. $10 advance tickets are now on sale at KXCI, Antigone’s, The Folk Shop, The Parish Gastropub and www.kxci.org. $8 KXCI member discounted tickets are available at the KXCI Studios (Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm) $12 tickets will be available at the show.
