Published DateLACONIA — Pitman's Freight Room in Laconia is pleased to present Mr. Nick and the Dirty Tricks Blues Band for a return performance on February 22 at 8 p.m. Admission is $10, doors open at 7:15 p.m. and Pitman's is a BYOB venue.
Mr. Nick & the Dirty Tricks unites veteran musicians Nick David (a.k.a. Mr. Nick), "Lonely" Gus Carlson, Teddy B. (Bukowski) and Rick Rousseau for one of the region's most formidable live outfits in any genre. But their hearts belong to blues. Real blues.
They play elegant, stomping and swinging classics like Little Walter's "Mellow Down Easy," Howlin' Wolf's "300 Pounds of Joy" and Wynonie Harris' "Good Morning Judge." Their bag of originals is a mix of rhumbas, jump blues, and boogies.
"This band is a killer outfit," says David. And that's the truth. Everything comes together when they play: their deep mutual understanding and knowledge of blues, their originality and depth as players, and the band's ability to put on a great show that brings people to their feet. It's a blend that wins new converts wherever they perform.
