By Vivian El-Salawy on February 12, 2017

Ah, Valentine’s Day – a day of love, filled with roses and chocolates. Regardless of your current relationship status and how you feel about the holiday, you can spend Valentine’s Day with Johnny Rawls.

According to Tallahassee Arts, Johnny Rawls is “smooth and dapper with a whole lot of soul”. Johnny has appeared on the cover of the April 2002 Living Blues Magazine and has been nominated four times for the W.C. Handy Award. Visit Tallahassee highlights some of his most recent awards: in 2006, he received an award from the West Coast Blues Hall of Fame for R&B Male Vocalist of the Year.

“He’s got a knack with that fred board, all right, and that rapid-fire staccato blues lead that makes a solo so recognizable simply belongs to big John when that Strat takes flight,” reports World’s Greatest Critic.

American soul blues singer, guitarist, arranger, songwriter, and record producer Johnny Rawls has produced around seventween albums. Additionally, he has performed with big time blues artists O.V. Wright and James Carr.

Johnny will be performing at the Bradfordville Blues Club (BBC) in Tallahassee, Fl on February 14th (Valentine’s Day) at 8:00pm. The BBC is a backwoods cinder-block room that serves as a historic blues venue. Its unique location and atmosphere is truly an experience like no other. In fact, BBC has been the Tally Award Winner for Best Night Club and Bar in Tallahassee for four consecutive years from 2005 to 2008.

The BBC gives newcomers a preview of what this unique experience on their website:

“The bonfire burns nightly under the large oaks and provides a great atmosphere for romance. You can usually meet the artists as they too enjoy the rustic surroundings out by the fire or you can just sit back and relax during the set breaks.”

Whether or not you are spending Valentine’ s Day with a significant other, with family, with friends, or on your own – you can enjoy your evening listening to one of the most incredible soul blues musicians from Mississippi.

Online tickets typically last until a few hours before the show or until sold out, however with it being Valentine’s Day, these tickets are likely to get snatched while they’re still hot.

Tickets for the show are $20 if purchased in advance and $25 if purchased the day of the show. Tickets are sold on a “will call” basis, meaning that they will be at the gate or door. For more information on where to purchase tickets and the location of the Bradfordville Blues Club, visit: Bradfordville Blues Club.

As the Bradfordville Blues Club says: “We’ll keep the bonfire burning, the beer ice-cold, and the music hot!”
