Kid Pinky and Buen Sazón de la Abuela Petra at ArtsNight Maynard
As a part of April’s ArtsNight Maynard, get the blues with Kid Pinky, a retro-style, four-piece blues band that is both authentic and unique. Lead man Steve Prisby was the founder and leader of The Movers, the 1995 International Blues Band Competition winner in Memphis, TN. Accompanied by three highly talented bluesmen from the New Hampshire area, Kid Pinky is a throwback to the future. While paying homage to blues from the 40s and 50s, as well as New Orleans funk and jazz, they have assimilated their influences to conceive an entirely innovative and original sound. Engaging personalities and comfortable volume levels always make the show FUN, creating an intimacy that feels like a private performance in your own living room…or kwoon. We’ll also be featuring delicious food from Maynard’s upcoming Puerto Rican restaurant, Buen Sazón de la Abuela Petra!
