Friday June 5th 4PM to 7PM at Mad River Bar and Grille.
Two weeks ago, Drink Small the Blues Doctor, made a huge splash opening the Piccolo Spoleto Early Bird Blues Series.
Drink (his real name) captivated a happy hour crowd of 150 with his razorwire guitar and deep bass vocals. Songs both kindhearted and edgy, Drink Small is South Carolina’s greatest living blues artist with wild tales and wicked skills. He has been recording since the mid-1950s.

The venue is an old church, which was a pleasant bolt from the blue for many folks at his show in May. It stands with other venues where Drink has brought the house down – the Chicago Blues Festival, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, King Biscuit, Mississippi Valley…the list goes on.
This show is must for any fan or student of music, southern culture, and anyone seeking to experience a real-deal artist. See you there – get there early, everyone else will. Bona fide blues performances this good usually occur in a dangerous venue – but with this Piccolo Spoleto Early Bird Blues Series you can introduce the family to a blues icon and still get home before the streetlights come on.
