The Fabulous Ms.Shari Puorto Is Special Guest For Wednesday's VCBS Jam In Ventura

    (Ventura, CA) - Holy Crap! The special guests just keep getting bigger and better each week at the weekly Ventura County Blues Society-sponsored Wednesday night Jam session. This Wednesday night, April 10, host band Tommy Marsh and Bad Dog welcome that blues-singing dynamo, the fabulous Ms. Shari Puorto. It all takes place at The Tavern, 211 Santa Clara Ave. from 8-11 p.m. And there's no cover! Info: (805) 643-3264
   "Shari Puorto's vocals meld Susan Tedeschi self-taught soul, Bonnie Raitt country-rock sweetness and just a touch of Melissa Etheridge rasp. On the slide guitar-laden "Don't Mess With Me," off her most recent release Real, Puorto unleashes a similar raw self-assuredness that brings to mind greats like Etta James and Ruth Brown, themselves masters of evoking feeling," writes the Monterey County Weekly. The 2010 L.A. Music Awards winner in the "Best Americana Roots or Blues" Song of the Year category will also be performing at this year's Kern Rock & Blues Fest September 27-29.

   "Tommy Marsh & Bad Dog is a red-hot blues outfit. He has a strong crowd showing up on a weekly basis seeing great out-of-town talent with some very hot locals. The Ventura Blues Society sponsors the weekly event, with a featured artist showcased, (with) Tommy Marsh and Bad Dog backing that person. Afterward there is a jam with Bad Dog, that is fun to watch. At some of these jams you can see some real talent come to life. The room was humming with people casually dancing, some more intense than others - all having a wonderful time. If you are in Ventura you need to check out The Tavern. It is a fantastic place with good food and spirits." -  B Noel Barr, Random Lengths News.
   Tommy Marsh will be performing with Michael John and the Bottom Line at the upcoming 8th Annual Ventura County Blues Festival, Saturday, April 27 at Moorpark College (click on the link here for additional information). Wailing Guitars, Soulful vocals speak to the listener.... Drawing from Blues, soul, country and Southern Rock roots, Tommy Marsh and Bad Dog have a sound you will truly enjoy listening to. Great originals and a few extended guitar solos make Tommy Marsh and Bad Dog a real Jam band -  one you will want come back to see again and again!
