Peggy Ratusz is a well established presence in the Asheville music scene. Chosen as Best Blues Artist by Mountain Xpress for ten years running, she performs an infectious, sultry, multi-layered brand of original, traditional and modern Blues, Soul and Jazz. Every drop of emotion is authentic and shows all who are present that she’s a willing servant to Jazz, Blues and Old School Soul.
Alien Music Club is essentially an on-going project conceived by Jonathan Pearlman (JP) of Asheville, NC. It is an eclectic blend of alternative music in diverse musical genres. AMC is perhaps best known as the co-sponsor of a weekly jazz jam at Barley’s Taproom which has become a staple of the Asheville music scene over many years. A core group of exceptional musicians are part of AMC. They include Chuck Lichtenberger (piano), Grant Cuthbertson (bass) and Ben Bjorlie (drums), who will all be performing “Out of the Blue(s)” along with special guests.
