Presented by Swell Productions at Harlow's, Sacramento
Upcoming Dates: Wed, Jul 24 @ 6:30 pm

The...

[more+]

The iconic harmonica maestro, James Cotton, passed away in 2017 at the age of 81. Considered by many as the last great harp titan of the generation that included legendary figures like Little Walter (whom James replaced in Muddy Waters Band), Sonny Boy Williamson 2 (who mentored Cotton from the age of 12), Jr. Wells, Big Walter, and numerous others. James’ remarkable career spanned over six decades, firmly establishing him among the pantheon of all-time blues greats.

The James Cotton Blues Band comprises notable members: Steve Freund (known for collaborations with Boz Scaggs, Sunnyland Slim, Koko Taylor, Lonnie Brooks, Otis Rush, Bo Diddley, and a 12-year stint alongside Cotton), Tom Holland (recognized for his work with Eddie Clearwater, Mississippi Heat, John Primer, and a 15-year tenure with Cotton), Cros Charles Mack (bass player for a decade with James and an IBC winner), June Core (drums for Musselwhite, James Cotton, Robert Lockwood), and Mark Hummel, who takes on the role of both playing and singing in James’s stead. Hummel is renowned for producing The Blues Harmonica Blowouts (featuring luminaries like Mayall, Musselwhite, Huey Lewis, Lee Oskar, and Magic Dick) for 30 years, which included Cotton in seven national tours as part of that event. Cotton once remarked, ‘Mark is All About The Music.’ Mark holds a Grammy nomination from 2013, two Blues Music Awards, and boasts an impressive repertoire of 30 albums.

Presented by B Street Theatre - Mainstage at The Sofia Tsakopoulos Center for the Arts, Sacramento

B Street went to Scotland! In 2022, B Street Theatre commissioned playwright Arlene Hutton (LAST TRAIN TO NIBROC, THE NIBROC TRILOGY) to write an exciting new play featuring members of our acting company. From this came BLOOD OF THE LAMB, a searing new drama starring Dana Brooke and Elisabeth Nunziato. Recently, BLOOD OF THE LAMB was selected to be featured at both the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland and the Adelaide Fringe Festival in Australia, receiving rave reviews in The Telegraph and the Guardian.

The Telegraph
5 stars
"Set in the wake of Roe v Wade being overturned, this short two-hander at the Edinburgh Fringe packs the punch of a state-of-the-nation epic."

The Guardian
4 stars
"Directed expertly by Lyndsay Burch, this is a chilling scenario, clearly informed by the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v Wade."

ABOUT THE PLAY

A woman fights for her life and a lawyer tries to do her job in a Kafka-esque drama about bureaucratic chaos in a post-Roe America. This hot-off-a-workshop-script dives unflinchingly into the heart of forced-birth issues. With a sometimes surreal style, BLOOD OF THE LAMB is a heartfelt (and heartbreaking) look at two women navigating the vagaries of the law which requires a dead fetus to be carried to term as an unborn 'citizen' of the state of Texas." Certainly a play of our current moment, as we find these women at opposite sides of the table amidst legal precedents, administrative madness, and moral obligation to humanity.

ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT

Arlene Hutton is the author of LETTERS TO SALA, THE NIBROC TRILOGY, and more recently, ACCORDING TO THE CHORUS, which premiered at The Road Theatre in LA and was produced by New Light Theatre Project at 59E59 in NYC earlier this year, featuring Dana Brooke. The Rubicon Theatre production of her play GULF VIEW DRIVE received a 2018 Ovation Award for Best Production. Other regional credits include B Street, which presented LAST TRAIN TO NIBROC and the entire TRILOGY, as well as Actors Coop, Chester Theatre, Cincinnati Playhouse, Florida Studio Theatre, Kitchen Theatre, Mad Cow, Riverside, Taproot, Washington Stage Guild and others.

An alumnus of New Dramatists and member of Ensemble Studio Theatre, New Circle Theatre Company, New Light Theatre Project, and Honor Roll!, Hutton is a three-time winner of the Samuel French Short Play Festival, three-time semi-finalist for the O’Neill, nine-time finalist for the Heideman Award, Francesca Primus Prize finalist, and recipient of an EST/Sloan Commission, a Bushwick Starr grant and NYFA Fellowship. Residencies include the William Inge Center, the Lark, the MacDowell Colony, SPACE at Ryder Farm, and Yaddo. Hutton’s works have been presented at FringeNYC, Off- and Off-Off-Broadway, regionally, in London, Edinburgh and throughout the world. Her scripts are published by DPS, Playscripts, and TRW Group. Her latest play, BLOOD OF THE LAMB, commissioned by B Street Theatre, was selected for the Centenary Stage new works festival, was a finalist for Gulfshore Playhouse and will premiere at the prestigious Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh in August. Hutton has been on the faculty at the College of Charleston, the Sewanee Writers’ Conference, the University of the South and Seattle Pacific University. Based in NYC, she teaches playwriting for The Barrow Group. Hutton’s next project, commissioned by AD Players, is HOLLY STREET, a new Christmas play set in her NIBROC world.

Capitol Pun-ishment

[more+]

If a dad joke had a love child with a rap battle, which was then adopted by a tournament, you’d have Capitol PUNishment.

Two contestants square off in a best-of-three round where the pun topics are decided by the spin of the iconic wheel-of-puns. The winner advances to the next round.

When all is said and done, and a champion has been decided through the crucible of noble pun combat, the bosses come out. The champion must then beat the bosses in a lopsided battle, where their only help is the audience’s choice of topic. If the champion wins, they become the Pun Master, entering into the hallowed hall of fame where a select few have earned a spot.

August 2nd Contestants: Sara Aghamohammadi, Andrew Sarchet, Lacey Carroll, Will Maguire

Capitol PUNishment is a pun tournament where groans are as good as laughs, and the audience is encouraged to shout out ideas and be as biased as they can toward their contestant of choice. For more than half a dozen years, they’ve brought the funny and the punny to countless people in that time, and look forward to once again hearing the crowd shouting, “Spin that wheel! Spin that wheel!”

​This show is a seated  “supper club-styled” show (no dance floor) with four powerful women singers: Chrissie O’Dell, Dana Moret, Pinkie Rideau, and Tia Carroll! Sacramento Blues Society celebrating our 45th Anniversary. “Songs That Changed Our Lives”. Each singer will be doing favorite songs from many decades. R&B, soul and blues songs you most likely know from those cruisin’ in your car FM radio days, your hangin’ out in record store days… summer songs. “You Haven’t Done Nothing,” “Damn Your Eyes”, “Somethin’ to Talk About,” “World of Contradiction,” “Cry To Me.” Favorite songs from many decades. We asked these entertainers to choose songs that were important to them from each of the decades the SBS has been in existence. It’s our way of giving a visceral nod to all the years—the 1970s, the 1980s, the 1990s, the 2000s, the 2010s, and now, the 2020s. So many blues and roots music lovers worked hard to make the SBS emerge, last and still be going strong 45 years later in 2024. They will be backed by many members of  the stellar Cold Blood/Zenn VuDu group: Steve Dunne(guitar and vocals/music director), Jonathan Stoyanoff (bass), Larry Davis (keyboard), Bryan Kilfoil (drums), and Otis Mourning (sax/clarinet.)

[more+]

Son Little, praised by American Songwriter as "one of the best songwriters working today,” conceived his latest album (Like Neptune) in a cabin overlooking the Delaware River in upstate New York. Trading in the existential dread permeating his previous work for unbridled joy and self-acceptance, Son Little transmutes the chronic pain of self-doubt into a beautiful and freeing opus about overcoming generational trauma. Hailed by Afropunk as "a stunning statement of purpose," Like Neptune decorates the altar of the primordial blues and elevates the labor of healing to high art.

“I’ve always felt as though I was making music because I had to, something inside compelled me. Fueled me,” Little shared. “This the first time in a long time I’m making music for the pure joy of creating.”

Son Little and his band are comprised of Little on vocals/guitar, Steve McKie (drums), and DeShawn Alexander (keys/bass).

The iconic harmonica maestro, James Cotton, passed away in 2017 at the age of 81. Considered by many as the last great harp titan of the generation that included legendary figures like Little Walter (whom James replaced in Muddy Waters Band), Sonny Boy Williamson 2 (who mentored Cotton from the age of 12), Jr. Wells, Big Walter, and numerous others. James’ remarkable career spanned over six decades, firmly establishing him among the pantheon of all-time blues greats.

The James Cotton Blues Band comprises notable members: Steve Freund (known for collaborations with Boz Scaggs, Sunnyland Slim, Koko Taylor, Lonnie Brooks, Otis Rush, Bo Diddley, and a 12-year stint alongside Cotton), Tom Holland (recognized for his work with Eddie Clearwater, Mississippi Heat, John Primer, and a 15-year tenure with Cotton), Cros Charles Mack (bass player for a decade with James and an IBC winner), June Core (drums for Musselwhite, James Cotton, Robert Lockwood), and Mark Hummel, who takes on the role of both playing and singing in James’s stead. Hummel is renowned for producing The Blues Harmonica Blowouts (featuring luminaries like Mayall, Musselwhite, Huey Lewis, Lee Oskar, and Magic Dick) for 30 years, which included Cotton in seven national tours as part of that event. Cotton once remarked, ‘Mark is All About The Music.’ Mark holds a Grammy nomination from 2013, two Blues Music Awards, and boasts an impressive repertoire of 30 albums.

B Street went to Scotland! In 2022, B Street Theatre commissioned playwright Arlene Hutton (LAST TRAIN TO NIBROC, THE NIBROC TRILOGY) to write an exciting new play featuring members of our acting company. From this came BLOOD OF THE LAMB, a searing new drama starring Dana Brooke and Elisabeth Nunziato. Recently, BLOOD OF THE LAMB was selected to be featured at both the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland and the Adelaide Fringe Festival in Australia, receiving rave reviews in The Telegraph and the Guardian.

The Telegraph
5 stars
"Set in the wake of Roe v Wade being overturned, this short two-hander at the Edinburgh Fringe packs the punch of a state-of-the-nation epic."

The Guardian
4 stars
"Directed expertly by Lyndsay Burch, this is a chilling scenario, clearly informed by the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v Wade."

ABOUT THE PLAY

A woman fights for her life and a lawyer tries to do her job in a Kafka-esque drama about bureaucratic chaos in a post-Roe America. This hot-off-a-workshop-script dives unflinchingly into the heart of forced-birth issues. With a sometimes surreal style, BLOOD OF THE LAMB is a heartfelt (and heartbreaking) look at two women navigating the vagaries of the law which requires a dead fetus to be carried to term as an unborn 'citizen' of the state of Texas." Certainly a play of our current moment, as we find these women at opposite sides of the table amidst legal precedents, administrative madness, and moral obligation to humanity.

ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT

Arlene Hutton is the author of LETTERS TO SALA, THE NIBROC TRILOGY, and more recently, ACCORDING TO THE CHORUS, which premiered at The Road Theatre in LA and was produced by New Light Theatre Project at 59E59 in NYC earlier this year, featuring Dana Brooke. The Rubicon Theatre production of her play GULF VIEW DRIVE received a 2018 Ovation Award for Best Production. Other regional credits include B Street, which presented LAST TRAIN TO NIBROC and the entire TRILOGY, as well as Actors Coop, Chester Theatre, Cincinnati Playhouse, Florida Studio Theatre, Kitchen Theatre, Mad Cow, Riverside, Taproot, Washington Stage Guild and others.

An alumnus of New Dramatists and member of Ensemble Studio Theatre, New Circle Theatre Company, New Light Theatre Project, and Honor Roll!, Hutton is a three-time winner of the Samuel French Short Play Festival, three-time semi-finalist for the O’Neill, nine-time finalist for the Heideman Award, Francesca Primus Prize finalist, and recipient of an EST/Sloan Commission, a Bushwick Starr grant and NYFA Fellowship. Residencies include the William Inge Center, the Lark, the MacDowell Colony, SPACE at Ryder Farm, and Yaddo. Hutton’s works have been presented at FringeNYC, Off- and Off-Off-Broadway, regionally, in London, Edinburgh and throughout the world. Her scripts are published by DPS, Playscripts, and TRW Group. Her latest play, BLOOD OF THE LAMB, commissioned by B Street Theatre, was selected for the Centenary Stage new works festival, was a finalist for Gulfshore Playhouse and will premiere at the prestigious Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh in August. Hutton has been on the faculty at the College of Charleston, the Sewanee Writers’ Conference, the University of the South and Seattle Pacific University. Based in NYC, she teaches playwriting for The Barrow Group. Hutton’s next project, commissioned by AD Players, is HOLLY STREET, a new Christmas play set in her NIBROC world.

Capitol Pun-ishment

[more+]

If a dad joke had a love child with a rap battle, which was then adopted by a tournament, you’d have Capitol PUNishment.

Two contestants square off in a best-of-three round where the pun topics are decided by the spin of the iconic wheel-of-puns. The winner advances to the next round.

When all is said and done, and a champion has been decided through the crucible of noble pun combat, the bosses come out. The champion must then beat the bosses in a lopsided battle, where their only help is the audience’s choice of topic. If the champion wins, they become the Pun Master, entering into the hallowed hall of fame where a select few have earned a spot.

August 2nd Contestants: Sara Aghamohammadi, Andrew Sarchet, Lacey Carroll, Will Maguire

Capitol PUNishment is a pun tournament where groans are as good as laughs, and the audience is encouraged to shout out ideas and be as biased as they can toward their contestant of choice. For more than half a dozen years, they’ve brought the funny and the punny to countless people in that time, and look forward to once again hearing the crowd shouting, “Spin that wheel! Spin that wheel!”

Sacramento Blues Society: 45 Years of Songs That Changed Our Lives

Upcoming Dates: Sun, Aug 11 @ 6:00 pm

[more+]

​This show is a seated  “supper club-styled” show (no dance floor) with four powerful women singers: Chrissie O’Dell, Dana Moret, Pinkie Rideau, and Tia Carroll! Sacramento Blues Society celebrating our 45th Anniversary. “Songs That Changed Our Lives”. Each singer will be doing favorite songs from many decades. R&B, soul and blues songs you most likely know from those cruisin’ in your car FM radio days, your hangin’ out in record store days… summer songs. “You Haven’t Done Nothing,” “Damn Your Eyes”, “Somethin’ to Talk About,” “World of Contradiction,” “Cry To Me.” Favorite songs from many decades. We asked these entertainers to choose songs that were important to them from each of the decades the SBS has been in existence. It’s our way of giving a visceral nod to all the years—the 1970s, the 1980s, the 1990s, the 2000s, the 2010s, and now, the 2020s. So many blues and roots music lovers worked hard to make the SBS emerge, last and still be going strong 45 years later in 2024. They will be backed by many members of  the stellar Cold Blood/Zenn VuDu group: Steve Dunne(guitar and vocals/music director), Jonathan Stoyanoff (bass), Larry Davis (keyboard), Bryan Kilfoil (drums), and Otis Mourning (sax/clarinet.)

Son Little, praised by American Songwriter as "one of the best songwriters working today,” conceived his latest album (Like Neptune) in a cabin overlooking the Delaware River in upstate New York. Trading in the existential dread permeating his previous work for unbridled joy and self-acceptance, Son Little transmutes the chronic pain of self-doubt into a beautiful and freeing opus about overcoming generational trauma. Hailed by Afropunk as "a stunning statement of purpose," Like Neptune decorates the altar of the primordial blues and elevates the labor of healing to high art.

“I’ve always felt as though I was making music because I had to, something inside compelled me. Fueled me,” Little shared. “This the first time in a long time I’m making music for the pure joy of creating.”

Son Little and his band are comprised of Little on vocals/guitar, Steve McKie (drums), and DeShawn Alexander (keys/bass).
