Sunday may 31: 8PM. Serious Blues w/ Herbie D & the Dangermen

Wilmington, NC –It’s time to heed the call of the water and the beckoning of the blues:
Herbie D and the Dangermen are bringing bring their upbeat bumping acoustic
mix of Americana and both Appalachian and New Orleans blues to the Port City’s
Juggling Gypsy, on Sunday, 31 May.

The band’s audience-engaging style combines Herbie Desseyn’s raspy lead vocals and
bluesy acoustic guitar with Chris Gifford’s groove-along upright bass and Michael
Salazar’s (Sal’s) rhythmic, shuffling drums – then tops it all off with a giant shot
of Art Martin’s high-octane Chicago-style saxophone artistry. They showcase unique,
original music like “Route 32,” “All the Guys Want to Be Your Man,” and “Baby, I’m
on the Road.” And when they do play the occasional cover (like “Roxanne”) it’s so
uniquely arranged that you’ll hardly know it is one.

Herbie D and the Dangermen earned a spot at the International Blues Challenge in
Memphis and have performed at big events like Herndon Fest (outside of DC) and the
Hampton Acoustic Blues Festival. Their regular regional tours have already built
them a strong following in Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, and
Indiana. Find out more at
