Double bill at Bozzini’s on Friday

Expect stark, lyrically haunting songs about hard living characters at the show on June 21

There’s a killer double bill of roots, folk, blues and country featuring Rodney Decroo and Herald Nix June 21 at Bozzini’s upstairs lounge.

Nix’s guitar playing is so personal it defies categorization. Using fingers and slide together, he evokes bottleneck blues and pedal-steel styles; his use of echo harks back to Carl Perkins and Scotty Moore; his gritty amp tone might have been devised by the Memphis and Mississippi transplants who invented Chicago blues.

Alone with his guitar onstage Rodney DeCroo sings stark, lyrically haunting songs about hard living characters.

Tickets are $20 at Bozzini’s or call 604 792 0744 to reserve by phone. Show time is 9:30 p.m. Tables available from 8 p.m.
