The 1st Delaney Chevrolet Westsylvania Jazz & Blues Festival nails Indiana’s IRMC Park on North Seventh Street May 24, giving with it a possibility to take pleasure in live music free of charge and a chance for local performers to rub elbows with countrywide big names.
The Jukehouse Bombers, established in Indiana and led by guitar players Jimmy Roach and his son, Joe, will be playing a set in tribute to regional blues guitar legend Jeff Kelley, who passed away of cancer last year.
The Jukehouse Bombers started performing with each other in 2012. In addition to the Roaches, who both share vocals, the band includes bass player and vocalist Troy Laney of Elmora and drummer Mark Kephart of DuBois. The group’s repertoire consists of barrelhouse blues, soul and classic rock with original work and also covers.

Fish shocks the blues
Samantha Fish has been doing a lot of blues festivals lately, as well as presenting at the Blues Music Awards, where she previously won an award for Best New Artist Debut.
